The Cover is Revealed!

One of the most exciting parts of the book production process is seeing the cover for the first time. Generally, the author has no idea what the publisher is planning, and so the big reveal is a surprise. In my case, however, I got to see the cover as it grew from idea to finished product. I probably pestered BJ to death with my "Hey, try this!" and "Hey, try that!" e-mails, but in the end, I think we came up with something cool.

Wanna see it?



Isn't it pretty?
