Ruben de Vela has sent me the final version of the cover for Dreams of the Boardwalk (well, he’s going to send me a final-final version soon, now that he has his payment, but it’s essentially just a larger version of this)! Isn’t it beautiful? As with the previous times I’ve worked with Ruben, the picture turned out very differently than I originally envisioned, but in many ways, it’s even better. Here’s a version without the title placeholder:
Future chapters of Dreams of the Boardwalk will have this as their header, and when I assemble and edit it for the final novella, this will be its cover. In the meantime, this art has taken up a permanent home in my promotional art gallery at matthewkeville.com.
(I just can’t get over how awesome that picture is! That’s Sarah, right there! Deep in her dream and dancing in a hot summer night.)
