Runoff is Coming ...

Sounds like a flash flood warning, doesn't it?

I finished all the rewrites imposed or suggested by me, my writers' group, my mentor and teacher Donna Levin and my editor Alison Janssen, and my upcoming novel Runoff is officially "in the can." (Except for the further, extensive proofreading which will no doubt be required to rid the final edition of all the typos I always manage to introduce.)

Ace designer Kevin Glidden has also completed the cover design, which means that Advanced Reading Copies (ARCs) of the book can and are being produced.

Here's the front cover (click for larger version):


And the back:

The main thing left for me to do is pull together the photos that will be used to introduce each chapter in the final edition. You can get a preview of those by viewing the Flickr slide show.

And, you can find a little more on the plot and an excerpt of the first chapter on my web site.

Terrific cover. It actually engages your attention long enough for you to decide to buy it.
