Cover art means a lot to an author–and to many readers also. The lovely imagery on the cover both inspires the imagination and teases at the story within the pages.
The old adage says you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but in the case of the cover art for my third Shinobi Mystery, FLASK OF THE DRUNKEN MASTER, the art is so lovely that I’m ok if you want to love it at first sight (I know I did).
FLASK will release from Minotaur Books in July, 2015. (Available for preorder now.)
