JUDGING A BOOK, Part Two
And this one's an absolute beaut. I've had some terrific artists provide covers for my books before, Steve Upham, Wayne Miller, Erin Wells, Paul Mudie, Paul Lowe, all talked about in earlier postings in this very blog. But this one by James Perales is near perfect. It's for my supernatural horror novel Tropic of Darkness, due out on 16th September from Simon & Schuster/Pocket Star and largely set in Havana, Cuba. And what James has done is create a brand-new artistic sub-genre ... let's call it 'Caribbean Gothic.' It's a great piece, and I hope that you agree. I'll be talking about the book itself a little later on.
