Cover Reveal for THE PURSUIT OF COOL !!

The cover is the work of graphic artist Lee Libro, who did a fantastic job. A book cover is important on many levels, not the least of which is marketing and conveying a sense of the story within. I think of book covers as being the artistic face of the story, and as hard as I have worked on THE PURSUIT OF COOL itself — the words, the story, the characters, the moments big and small — I am pleased I now have an artistic face which I feel is an exciting and appropriate one. Lee did a great job with the whole package, but I am most pleased about the three figures, who in an iconic way convey some of the angst and intrigue within the story, as well as the era they inhabit.

The official launch date is now set for April 17, 2012. So get ready!
