When the kids were young and we would ask them what they did in school that day, they would often answer “nothing, just seatwork.” Now that I am retired, I have plenty time for writing or seatwork, as I have come to call it.
Generally, I aim for 10 or more pages a weekday. So, after you have spent that much time staring at a computer screen doing seatwork, it’s always pleasing to see a visible manifestation of your work with the arrival of a cover concept.
This is the working cover design for The Fleecing of Fort Griffin, the story of a passel of swindlers who venture to West Texas to con an English baron out of the satchel full of money he plans to use to start a buffalo ranch.
It’s a fun story with a lot of oddball characters, all with larceny in their hearts. The book will be out next year.
