The manuscript is in great shape (my editor thinks so, anyway) but the copy editor will find some damn thing on practically every page--this is the way of copy editors.  There will be a period of three weeks or so in which we wait, and then a great rush to respond to her notes, then off to the typesetter, then to the printer.  My understanding is that it's already available for pre-order on Kindle.  Ha.  Oh, and here's the cover:

Good luck, Jon! Looks like a great cover.

Thanks, Dana.  The only other one that's really worked was the MM paperback cover for High Season.

If anything, it's proof that if you ask for something enough you just might get it--I must have mentioned the Pilgrim Monument (that funky Moorish-looking tower thing) in at least 20 emails to my editor.  It really should be on every cover for this series.

That is a kick ass cover. I'm looking forward to the release.

Thanks!  Yeah--it's the best one so far.  My only suggestion was that it should say "A Frank Coffin Mystery," instead of just "A Mystery."  Also, maybe the tower could be a bit bigger.  But at least it's a recognizable image of Provincetown, for once.

Smokin' cool cover! I like the choice to bring out the blue in the house. Makes for a nice contrast with the "fire" in the sky.
