You might be wondering why I would want to select the cover of the book before I have finished writing it.
It’s for inspiration. I see the cover and it inspires me, helps me to visualize the story and in some ways keeps me focused.
I’m still searching for a better photograph; I have two (which I will have to spend about $25.00 for) of a rainstorm, but I thought that was too obvious.
The title? Originally, the working title of this book was Undertow, but when I thought more about the story, the characters, and the climax (yes, I already know how the story is going to end) that’s when I changed the title.
And yes, a tip of the hat to Bob Dylan’s “A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall”.
