Doing the final edits on the Ballad of Knuckles McGraw (Orca spring 2010), I read in the front matter that Peter Ferguson is illustrating the cover, as he did for Meeting Miss 405.
Last time, after opening the box with the proofs, and being surprised to find a copy of the cover enclosed, my first thought was, 'But that's not what I had in mind."
And almost immediately, my second thought was, "But I love it." And I still do - and get many comments on MM405.
I had asked my publisher if they'd consider using PF again for my second book, and I'm thrilled they said 'Yes'.
So I can't wait to see what Peter comes up with this time.
Meanwhile, you can check out more his work here.
