Yes, that's it. The new book's cover. What's cool is that the image wraps around onto the back cover. I haven't put that up because it has a mock ISBN barcode on it, and I need to get the real one on the back before I can show it.
Anyway, the design talents of Erin Vieth Brochu made this possible. She's great to work with, and I feel as if I have an artistic cover!
You probably have noticed that I did not post on Monday. I probably won't post again this coming Monday. I'm finishing up the edits on The Good Community's manuscript and then moving toward publication. This takes time.
Since a decent blog - sometimes even an indecent one! - takes a couple of hours, I really want to put that time and energy into getting the new book out. There also a couple of church activities this coming week that will keep me busy. There is a community walk on Sunday to raise funds to fight hunger. And during the rest of the week the church will be hosting homeless families from Interfaith Hospitality Network of Somerset County.
So, yeah. I'll be kind of busy.
But hang in there. I'll be back next Friday with more info on the new book's release, or a history blog, or perhaps a Halloween tale set in Blaineton, 1864. Keep your fingers crossed!
Later, gators. "Be excellent to one another," as Bill and Ted might say.
