I was browsing through my pictures the other day, and I ran across this wolf. I had no idea where it came from. Blood Tattoo was the tentative title for a YA horror novel I was working on a while back, but I didn't remember mocking up a book cover. In fact, I don't even know how to do what was done to this picture.

Then it occurred to me that my son must have done this. I asked him, and he said yes he did. I had told him the title, and he did the mock cover one day when he was bored. Never told me about it.

I think it's pretty cool.

And, it has prompted me to get back to work on the story.

Hmmm. I like the title and the cover. Looks kind of scary for YA, but maybe not. Older YA, certainly.

It's supposed to be scary, you know?

He could maybe have a career in graphic design. That has everything a cover would want.

Wow, Jude! How encouraging is that? And that cover rocks. The blue eyes of that wolf are PERFECT. And Blood Tattoo font is awesome!

I not only think you have a cool kid, but I want to read your book! (Yeah, I'm easily influenced by covers.)
