How do you like the cover for Silencer?  It could change, but this is the concept at the moment.  Comments?

I like it, James. Very interesting. Causes the viewer to wonder "what or where" it's coming from. Nice work. Lee in Va. Beach

I think it's arresting. I would pick it up off the shelf for a look even if I didn't already know and read your work.

What's you do? Take a shovel, dig a hole in your backyard (in Boone!), and have your wife drop a camera down to you? The economies not that bad. (hehe)

Nice cover pic' .. having read your novels, and seeing this picture, I'm wondering if the round0ish view is relating to a rifle scope or just coincidence. If coincidence, then title and picture take on (imo) even more sinister implications of what "we" are seeing a brief glimpse of. Silencer. being silenced (non-scope). Just my 1.189 cents w/o interest (used to be a 2 cent opinion).

:^)~

I'm with Al. Looking forward to any future signings ... a' like, ya' know, here in Houston?

We met you once (at MBTB/HouTex) ... my wife was from Mountain City. Take care.

Scaired the hell outa of me...now I'z gotta go n' git it!!!!

The depths you manage to drag your participants/readers through and into, compel one to go deep within ones own murk and hopefully back out into the light.

A permanent fan....Carol, Ont. Canada.

I hate it. See Hard Case Crime for what a good cover can be.
