Now that NaNoWriMo is out of the way, it's on to the publication of the fourth novel in my John Ross Boomer Lit series.
And today I reveal the title and cover of the book, which will be published by Wings ePress on Feb. 1. During the past year, I've written about the novel, from rewrites to edits to working with the cover artist. It seems like it will never end, but eventually, it does.
The cover is like icing on a cake, the final stage in the creative process. If done right, it captures the essence of the novel and presents it in a way to attract readers, much like folks want to sink their teeth into a delicious piece of cake.
So here it is!
Trisha Fitzgerald-Jung designed the cover; she also did the artwork on my previous novel, New Horizons.
Pat Evans produced the cover for the first book in the series, Old Ways and New Days, and the late Richard Stroud produced the cover for the second book, Darkness Beyond the Light. I've been fortunate to work with such talented people at Wings.

Make Room for Family will be available for preorder on Jan. 1 as a trade paperback and e-book. I'll have information about that once I get a link (you might want to click the "Follow" button on the right margin).
Until the next time . . .
