This cover is stunning! Truly. Looking forward to getting my copy.

Chad said...

That's a great cover.

Randy Johnson said...

Nice cover.

Court Merrigan said...

That is one fine cover. I think there are words on it, but I haven't gotten to them yet.

I'd read it, David, and review - although I have yet to review Vol. II, I'm slow slow slow.

Michael J. McCann said...

That is definitely an eye-catching cover, David!

Ron Earl Phillips said...

To be honest, the title doesn't read as clearly as the previous two. It's the color and spacing, of course the spacing probably is there to not hide the creative assets of the art.

It's more than usable, far from horrible.

David Cranmer said...

Sabrina, Thank you. And I'll make sure you get a copy, amiga.

Chad/Randy, Thanks for weighing in. Appreciated.

Court, No worries. And a copy will be coming your way, friend.

Thanks, Michael.

Ron, We moved those words all over the place and it looked best in our opinion this way. Yes, consideration for the assets. :) Super appreciate your thoughts, sir.

R Thomas Brown said...

I like the cover, but I can see what Ron is referring to.

I think it's the color. Seems to blend into the background as it's such a soft color. Perhaps that was the intention, to avoid standing out from the image, but it loses impact.

The other title (vol I&II, Manhunters, Miles) All have a strong light to dark contract in title vs. background.

A spectacular cover, Dave. How soon until it drops? Craig Wilson

Charles Gramlich said...

Great cover for sure!

David Cranmer said...

Thanks, Ron. Most of the thoughts seemed centered around the placement of the title. We're going to play around with it a bit more. We still have a couple days until release. (Have to admit we love the color and that will probably stay put.)

Hi, Craig! No later than Wednesday of next week. There will be a sample of the book on Fires on the Plain webzine later in the coming days.

Thanks, Charles.

Garnett Elliott said...

Bullets For a Ballot? Are you getting political now?

Seriously, though, that's a great cover. I'm mesmerized by the eyes.

David Cranmer said...

Garnett, Ha. Yes, she has beautiful eyes. I'm working on the book description that goes (rough draft) something like this: Marshal Cash Laramie arrives in the explosive town of Bear Pines where Mrs. Tolliver is running as the first female mayor. The incumbent mayor has powerful allies and attempts to harass her in quitting the race. Events ultimately turn lethal and Tolliver's husband is killed, leaving her and their son Danny on their own.

Cash rapidly finds himself with his hands full and surrounded by killers who will stop at nothing to make sure Mrs. Tolliver is not elected. He wires Cheyenne for assistance but will help arrive in time?

Chris Rhatigan said...

Awesome cover. I'd love to do a review.

David Cranmer said...

A copy will be coming your way, Chris. Please give a couple of days.

Dave King said...

Like most I find the cover stunning - and I have been known to choose a book by its cover!

pattinase (abbott) said...

You are brilliant.

David Cranmer said...

Well I hope you choose this one, Dave. Thanks.

Patti, I don't know about that! :) But thank you!

Nik said...

Yes, David, that's a good blurb. Doesn't give away a few surprises, either!

MikeyW said...

Very nice cover. I would suggest making the "as written by" a bit larger.

David Cranmer said...

Nik, It was very hard not to mention those surprises.

Mikey, Thanks for the suggestion. We have taken all the recommendations and will tweak the cover.

That young lady is a cover model and not me, Cloudia.

Just joking! Thanks.
