Patricia Cornwell's RED MIST

#1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Cornwell's new novel, Red Mist, goes on sale this Tuesday, December 6th.


What's that go to do with me? The book is set in and around Savannah, Georgia and when her publisher, Putnum, went looking for a atmospheric photograph from the area to use for the book's end papers, they found my shot of a foggy morning at Colonial Park Cemetery.


They printed it in silver on both end papers and I think it looks tremendous:


(Notice the image is reversed to keep the tree clear of the dust jacket flap.) Patricia is also featuring it on her website:


I don't think the Putnum folks realized that I am also a crime fiction writer, but of course the fact that I, too, write crime makes me all the more proud to have the photo on Patricia's book.

This amazing picture of yours is sure loaded with feelings of ghosts, mysticism and it's scary because you don't know who's lurking in the mists. It's a great photo for Red Mist book.
I actually heard about this book on Elaine Charles's Book Report Radio show the other Sunday and I'm glad I got to know more about the background of the book cover from you.
Perhaps you could do more of such photo's for book covers as they are of a high quality.
