From the author of the Gatlin Fields series comes a new series set in a very similar era. Working on the cover for July Is Coming took me way outside the box. I wanted to portray the mystery in the story but discovered that finding the right era imagery was extremely difficult. So I ended up with a cover where less is definitely more. Putting the ring on the cover was a stylistic decision that created many problems. I couldn’t find a ring that matched the description in the story, so the author had to adapt the ring in the story to match what I was able to find. This was another instance where I requested a specific photo on Dreamstime.com, and a photographer came through for me.
