Almost there. The image just has to be reversed, then we can set up the preorder. Newsletter subscribers are always first to hear about a new preorder at a reduced price, so if you want to get this one on the cheap, go to my website and subscribe. ... See MoreSee Less

I have been subscribed for a few years but haven’t received notice yet. Hope it arrives soon.

Why aren't these available on Audible anymore?

Waiting on the next 7 books to ship out. I finished the first 3 the week they arrived. Quickly catching up.😎🤘

Is this part of the Jesse McDermott series? I just finished book 16 so I'm way behind.

Love the cover!

Congratulations! Looks great!

Waiting, waiting, waiting...

If you missed last Monday's live in-person chat with Cap Daniels, here's the recorded episode. Sorry this took so long to get up on YouTube. I got a new computer a couple weeks ago and it won't continue the upload, which takes over an hour, when I get up from the keyboard and it goes into sleep mode. And like a dolt, I had to do it twice to figure that out. ... See MoreSee Less

The one with the sun reflecting on the water. Looks like you’re going somewhere when you cast off.

The last one with the rope on shorter image of the dock

Top right

One with the dock and sun réfection.

The one with the blue rope and weathered dock

1 sun reflected

First one with the sun on the water

I like the one with the gold tones and the dock leading into the water. The rope symbolizes the title. The gold is a little more menacing than the blue of the other colors. And the dock leads you on--into the water, into the story, into the mystery.

They are all great but #1 is my favorite.

Dock and sun reflection

Cast off should be off the deck of a boat

Bottom right.

The one with the orange sun reflection on the water

I like both the blue ones but it depends on the tone of the book. The one with the blue wash over the rope looks a bit darker

The 3rd one jumps out at me.

The 3rd one caught my attention first.

The one with the sun

3rd one

The design of number one, but the colors of number three.

The dock and sun

3rd one

dock and sun - always optimistic when starting out

The third one

#1 because it's a little more ominous. #s 2 and 3 are too soothing.

Don't miss Monday's live TalkWrite show.
We rarely have repeat guests, but since it's the first show of our third season, we're bringing Cap Daniels back, along with his narrator, PJ Ochlan.
And this will be a first on TalkWrite, since we launched at the beginning to the ChiCom pandemic, Cap will be appearing live in our studio, sitting right beside me.
To make sure you get the live notification, go to YouTube and search for my name. Then subscribe to my YouTube channel and click the Notification bell to get an email just before we start the live stream.
I'd include the link, but then Facebook would make sure nobody sees this post, so it's on you to find it on your own. Then, during the show, you can ask questions in the YouTube chat and we'll answer them live.
