One of the things I most enjoy about the publishing process is picking the cover art. It is the first step in marketing a book and probably the most important. Cover art should not only invite potential readers to take a look inside but also give them an idea of what a book is about. I chose the image at right because I thought it simply and elegantly represented a theater setting from 1918. I hope readers like it. Work on the second draft of The Show continues. I plan to release the third novel in my Northwest Passage series by March 1.
