An earlier, working cover of Lady Justice toting a rifle led to her much more clever idea of using Lady Justice in front of a gas explosion - and with fireworks off to the side.
If you look at the image of Lady Justice carefully, you can see the slightest hint of a smile.
Now that the cover is in the hands of Mill City Press, the worker bees there will be pressing ahead with the layout of the inside pages and the balance of the book jacket. Adm. Sylvia Fox and I are scrambling to get the endorsements for the back cover.
In the meantime, an audiobook version of The Fracking War is being recorded at musician Scott Adam's studio in Hector, NY. And as soon as that gets wrapped up, I will be reading Fracking Justice into the microphone so that it can be released as an audio book at the same time as the book and e-book.
At some point this summer, I'll start on book three of this series of novels, Fracking Evil. And there's plenty of good - or should I say evil - material to work with.
