It's almost like Christmas.
The cover design for Skating on Stilts has arrived. If you don't like it, there's no one to blame but me. I found the artist, Mart Klein, on line and explained the basic design I had in mind. Much credit to Hoover Press, though, for the font and cover design.
Book cover design, like everything else in publishing, has been deeply affected by Amazon. You have to pick a design that is recognizable in a tiny thumbnail sketch as well as on the shelves at bookstores. I think this design meets that criteria nicely.
Comments about how much more hair and how much more fit this guy is than me are not really necessary.
Looks like a Marvel action comic!

The art is fun, the concept is fun to play with. Could there been something in the background of the art to suggest terrorism? Also the title font treatment could be much more exciting than what you have. Over all, if the client is happy, that is all that matters.
