THE DEVIL OF LIGHT Wins Award for Best Mystery Cover Design!

Many of you know that I'm prone to, well, we could call them 'bad' decisions, but 'bad' has such a negative connotation, doesn't it? Instead, I like to think of them as 'character forming decisions'. Much more positive.

Choosing to design the original cover for THE DEVIL OF LIGHT was a decision that I hard-headedly pursued and that didn't work out so well. Thankfully, redemption was at hand in the form of fabulous cover designer Ares Jun, who created a stunning new cover for THE DEVIL OF LIGHT in late 2012.

This cover is so stunning that it has won the award for Best Cover Design for a Mystery Novel from the prestigious Venture Galleries! Kudos to me for at last recognizing that the original cover just wasn't good enough, and even bigger kudos to Ares for a spectacular job.

Many thanks to the judges over at Venture Galleries. Take a moment to stop by the Venture Galleries website to check out THE DEVIL OF LIGHT and the winners in other genres.

(And - shameless bit of self-promotion - get THE DEVIL OF LIGHT on Amazon to find out if the book lives up to its cover. AVENGERS OF BLOOD is coming February 2013 - get hooked on Cass Elliot now!)
