It’s surprising how consistently this version was the first pick for the people I asked, including my favorite indie bookstore owner. It reminds me of 1960s Saul Bass movie posters — appropriate, since Matt (Our Hero) likes old films. For this I have to credit Alisha at Damonza.com. I didn’t tell her to do this, but now that I look again at the list of examples I gave her, I see things pointing in this general direction. This concept will be fairly easy to adapt to future books so the entire series has a unified look.
I’ll put The Collection on pre-order once I get the final art deliverables from Damonza. I’m still aiming at the 31 October-15 November timeframe for release depending on when everything comes together.
I hope you like the cover — you probably helped choose it!
[BTW: I’m sending this out through MailerLite again. There was a bug last time, which is why you got the same post three times. They’ve supposedly fixed it — this will be a test to see if they have. Please be patient if you get this more than once. Thanks!]
