Because I had been too literal in my own imaginings of what the cover of A Star in the Face of the Sky should look like, it took me a minute to fall in love with it. But only minute, and I have remained smitten ever since and brag more shamelessly about the cover than I ever would about what lies between. (I get my picture taken with it and everything!)
BIG congratulations to Rachel Brixius for being a finalist for the prestigious da Vinci Eye Award, an annual prize awarded to independent and small press books with outstanding cover art. Eternal gratitude to Rachel for wrapping A Star in such beauty.
