Fresh New Look for “Epitaph”



As we draw closer to the autumn launch of my second novel, “A Door Unlocked”, I decided to give “The Epitaph of Jonas Barloff” a fresh coat of paint. While the overall feel is similar to Marion Sipe’s original design, the hooded character is now live and in living color and set against a deep blue sky and full moon that would elicit a howl from the most reticent of werewolves. On the back cover, the artist
included a few review quotes along with the synopsis. Between the covers, the story is exactly the same. No changes there.

Speaking of “A Door Unlocked”, an all important book cover reveal is coming soon. While we’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, let’s face it, we’re all guilty. More on the cover and the synopsis later. For now, suffice it to say that the novel is a supernatural/suspense about messages from the grave and a web of corruption. The book is set in DeSoto County Mississippi with specific locations in and around Olive Branch, Baptist DeSoto Hospital in Southaven, Riverside Drive, the fictional WRMZ-TV studios in Memphis, the Mayflower in Jackson, MS and other points of interest. Stay tuned.
