A few months ago, a writer in Pittsburgh emailed me asking to use this photo on the cover of his self-published book. After a few back-and-forths, we agreed on a price and the details, and he promised to send me a copy when it was published.
It came in the mail yesterday.
It's so thrilling to see one of my own pictures on the cover of a book! His neighbor is the artist who did the layout, and she did a beautiful job. I'm pleased as punch.
I took the photo at the old cemetery on Elm Street in West Springfield in January of 2008.
