However, it may be a stock image, supplied by the cover art creator, in which case I have no control over their resale of the image. I have asked the cover art company about it, but I don't have an answer yet. (less)

Stephen King
“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
Stephen King

Dr. Seuss
“Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.”
Dr. Seuss

Joseph Brodsky
“There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.”
Joseph Brodsky

J.M. Barrie
“Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it.”
J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

Louis L'Amour
“Do not let yourself be bothered by the inconsequential. One has only so much time in this world, so devote it to the work and the people most important to you, to those you love and things that matter. One can waste half a lifetime with people one doesn't really like, or doing things when one would be better off somewhere else.”
Louis L'Amour, Ride the River
