Oh man, I hope my writing is as good as this cover

Trestle Press green-lit this cover this morning. It's for the first standalone in the Maynard Soloman short story series (the crusty ol' bastard's first appearance being in "Who Whacked the Blogger?")


This one is called, "Maynard Soloman Solves The War on Drugs." It's a lofty claim, but the cantankerous codger wouldn't say it if it weren't sort of true.

He's a survivor.  Viva, Soloman!

He suffers from The Three Stooges Syndrome. So long as all these diseases try to get him at once, they'll all get stuck in the doorway, and none will get in.


Viva, Soloman!

He looks fairly comfortable - got nothing to cry about.  Love the little details on the face, the indentations, the missing teeth (OMG!), the cave-in above the eyebrow . . . . I can almost hear the wheezing from, possibly, lung cancer?

Striking cover.

Pretty sure smoking is the only thing keeping him alive.

Sweet, Benjamin.  Seein' the cover has to be a thrill for you.  My eyes were drawn immediately to the big long smoke . . . er . . . toke.  I like the sound of Maynard and look forward to reading about him.
