I thought you might like to see what the full cover for Driving Through Heaven looks like.

The graphic artist is finishing the final touches on the complete cover as it will go to the printer. The cover will be printed separately on card stock, then wrapped around the printed pages and glued to the spine.

You can view a clearer, PDF version of the full cover art here.

Next in the paperback publishing process will be to print a single copy for me to check that everything looks okay. Meanwhile, work has begun on formatting the book interior into the two digital versions available on the internet.
