On the Edge of Someplace Else: Mock-up of Cover
Okay, I was feeling creative, so thought I'd do a mock-up of the cover of my book as I see it. I'm loving the starkness of this picture, which parallels the starkness of my novel, and the barbwire cutting through the image just adds that touch of the sinister (also lurking in the novel). If I saw this cover on a table at Barnes & Noble, I'd definitely pick up the book (even if it didn't have my name on it).
PS: I snagged the image from a website via google image search. It's the work of photographer John Hames (http://www.johnhames.com/HolgaWork.html).
