Update: The Boy in the Well has a Cover


My forthcoming chapbook of horror stories now has a cover image, and I’m happy to say that it is appropriately creepy. Nate Jordon did his usual excellent job–he’s also responsible for the cover of Tapeworm, in addition to all of the fantastic editing skills he’s applied to both books. He deserves extra praise, because I’m among the absolute worst authors when it comes to thinking of cover images. Usually, I hand the book to someone who is more visually inclined than myself and tell them to let their imagination go wild. (As my high school art teacher once said while appraising a project, “Nick, you have good artistic taste,” stopping well short of the word talent.) And this image is even better than I could have expected. I’m very much looking forward to holding this image in my hands in the near future.
