“The Stars Were Right” Cover Revealed!

The Stars Were Right and Morning Coffee

As promised here it is: the final cover design for The Stars Were Right!

Dark, foreboding, mysterious, the cover design really captures the mood I wanted conveyed while giving subtle hints at the books themes and it works great on an ereader. I couldn’t be more pleased. Check out the larger more detailed version below (click if you want to see it even bigger.)

The 1866 etching that serves as the background is “The Vision of the Valley of Dry Bones” by Gustave Dore. The amazing hand lettering was created by master hand-letterer and illustrator Jon Contino. In the end it was Jon’s work that really locked everything together. Thank you Jon, seriously.

The Stars Were Right is due out later this year and will be available on most if not all ereader devices. (Actual printed version coming soon after.) Let me know what you think of the cover in the comments!
