Help Anita win a cover art contest

The cover for the latest Frank Nagler Mystery, “The Weight of Living,” was entered into a cover art contest at http://www.authorsbd.com.

Voting ends at 11:59 p.m. Oct. 23, Pacific Standard Time, or 3:59 a.m. Oct. 24 Eastern Standard Time.

The cover was done by the talented Anita-Dugan Moore of Imzadi Publishing.

So a vote for the cover is really a vote for Anita.

She incorporated two passages from the story to create an evocative cover.

First, the description that opens the book of the little girl found alive in a grocery store Dumpster:

“She seemed hollow, the girl did. Breathing, hearing, touching, but absent. Small, dark dots sunk into an ashen blank face, eyes impossibly dull for someone so young, eyes that stared straight ahead at the faded green wall; hard, eyes so hard that did not seem to register the color of the wall, the brown of the tabletop, the light bulb above her head or the presence of anyone else.”

And second, a description of Sister Katherine, the nun at the heart of the story, as she tells Frank Nagler why she acted:

“That part of Calista’s story is true. It was their eyes. I saw Sarah.” She closed her eyes and lifted her face to the slight breeze. Small tears gathered and ran down her lined, perfect face.”

Here’s the link to vote for the cover of “The Weight of Living.”

Help Anita win!!
