I’ll be back tomorrow to post about my penchant (or lack thereof) for wrapping gifts. But for today, I want to tell you about another sort of gift. An unexpected one.
Yesterday I received an early Christmas present from my publisher–the cover art for Snow Day. The fact it was sent by the folks at FaithWords on a day when the weather had given me a day off from work was not coincidental. Which goes to show just how cool they are.
So, whatcha think?
No one in Mattingly ever believed Bobby Barnes would live to see old age. Drink would either rot Bobby from the inside out or dull his senses just enough to send his truck off the mountain on one of his nightly rides. Although Bobby believes such an end possible—and even likely—it doesn’t stop him from taking his twin sons Matthew and Mark into the mountains one Saturday night. A sharp curve, blinding headlights, metal on metal, his sons’ screams. Bobby’s final thought as he sinks into blackness is a curious one—there will be stars.
“In a life full of lies, he settled finally for the truth.”
