A Finalized Cover

If you get into graphic design like I do, you can fool around with your cover image all day long.

But as Taj Mahal once said as he was tuning up for a concert, sooner or later, you gotta commit.

So I’m really happy with this version of the cover for the second Carding novel, Thieves of Fire.

And while was doing it, I figured out how to put type on a curved path (you can see the results in the moon). That’s something I don’t do very often so I always have to look it up in my InDesign reference books.

In other Carding novel news, I finally settled on a title for the third book in the series, A Face to Take into the Dark. It’s based on a line I heard a character use in the final Endeavour episode in the second season of the show.

The third novel takes place during Hurricane Irene and I’m very close to the end of the first draft. More as it emerges from my pen.
