Cover art: judging a book by its cover.

A few weeks back Bitingduck Press engaged an artist, Jeff Delierre (http://jeffdelierre.carbonmade.com/) , to prepare the cover artwork for Kill Shot, my upcoming YA novel (Spring 2015). I happened to be working on another round of edits as this is occurring.

He sent these sketches:

M2.2

Of the five, number 4 best suited the story.

Jeff followed up his black and white sketches with a color mock up. It’s awesome. The publisher, Jay Nadeau owner of Bitingduck Press, and suggested a few changes. I’m not going to tell you what they are, but if you compare images, you will see them.
