Coming Soon (with a new cover!) Mooner

Published July 19, 2013 by admin

I wanted to take the time to share the amazing talents of Nancy Donahue of cottage art creations, who was tasked with doing covers for both The Other Man and Mooner.  Not only did she put up with my ambiguous comments and suggestions, but she turned them into something extraordinary. Although Mooner is not back out yet, I’m thrilled to be able to share its cover with you today.

Like many young men at the end of the 1800s, Bill signed on to work in a logging camp. The work is brutal, but it promised a fast paycheck with which he can start his life. Unfortunately, his role model is Big John. Not only is he the camp’s hero, but he’s known for spending his pay as fast as he makes it. On a cold Saturday night they enter Red’s Saloon to forget the work that takes the sweat and lives of so many men their age. Red may have plans for their whiskey money, but something else lurks in the shadows. It watches and badly wants a drink that has nothing to do with alcohol. Can Bill make it back out the shabby door, or does someone else have their own plans for his future?

 

Excuse me while I just roll around on the floor in bliss for a moment. LOVE this cover – to me it exactly conveys the story and the stark, cold, lonely feeling that’s stalking the characters along with the creature of the title. A new cover isn’t the only change coming to Mooner. I’m also hoping to include an actual glossary of historical lumberjack terms used in the story, so that will make it extra special. Definitely can’t wait for this release, and so happy to have it out again! Be on the lookout for it soon…
