So here’s what the cover for my Turkmenistan book ended up looking like, which is a bit different from what I originally intended. The drawing I’d posted earlier turned out to be too busy, so it became the basis for the background. Also as you can see Terry won me over on the title and the book will be called Joe and Azat, not The Golden Age.
And I think that means I’m done. For real. Not that fake done I mentioned a month and a half ago, but a real done. It feels good. Real good. In so many ways. I’m happy with how the book came out. The story feels good. The drawing looks good. And I’m done with Turkmenistan! I got back two years ago! I can’t believe I’ve been working on this thing so long.
And it’s perfect timing because I’m leaving the peace and quiet of Vermont and moving back to Boston this weekend.
I’ve got to get packing.
