Hi, guys. I’m pleased that DSP Publications has announced November 15, 2016 as the release date for THE ZOZOBRA INCIDENT. This is a little later than I expected, but it is good to get a firm date on the calendar. I shouldn’t complain because the publishing business moves at a glacial pace, and this is less than a year from the date the contract for the book was signed. Folks, that represents warp speed in this industry. At any rate, I look forward to the release of Zozobra. As an added bonus, the election will be over by then (although the mourning, the celebrating, and the Monday morning quarterbacking will likely still be underway).
Now I want to do something I haven’t done before. DSP has provided me with the mock-up of a suggested cover for Zozobra. The book is about a blackmail attempt that culminates in murder at the burning of Zozobra (depicted in the cover art). a ritual that kicks off the annual Santa Fe Fiesta. I’m attaching the preliminary image as a way to solicit your comments. Note that this is not a “clean” cover, but upon final approval, all extraneous material will disappear (such as the Shutterstock logo). Please let me know if this projects a book you would like to read.
I look forward to your feedback, but time is of the essence, so don’t delay. Contact me with your suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
