“Unused Cover Artwork: DETOURS trade paperback mock-up
“Later this year, my anthology DETOURS will be published in trade paperback and eBook for the first time ever. The Limited Edition sold out in less than 24 hours after it was announced way back in 2017, so a more affordable edition is way overdue. I’ll share an official announcement and planned publication date when I have that information.
“The cover design above is one of the possible mock-ups we made a few years ago. I don’t think it’ll be used for this new trade paperback, but I always liked it, so I thought I’d share it with you in case it never sees the light of day.”
