After complaining in my first blog that book covers too seldom accurately reflect content, I'm faced that problem myself. Red Star Down (working title) centers around a wrecked plane. With some little trouble, I found an un-wrecked C-47 and toured it to get my facts straight on overall descriptions. The owning agency was quite reluctant to allow me to crash it for the sake of an accurate cover photo. (Some folks just don't appreciate what an aspiring author must undergo for the sake of accuracy.)
'Well,' I thought, 'I reckon I'll just have to build my own C-47, then crash it for the sake of art.'
That's pretty well what happened-- if I ever learn to transfer images on the blog machine, I'll show the first attempt.
