Same Old, Same Old, So it Was - new cover design

Still mulling over this one, the short stories against the theme, a new cover design is shown to the right.  

The inspiration behind this design is, first the color of clay in the given region of North Alabama; and while the color is not very appealing, it is matched to the clay, color.  

The image happens to be the homestead of one of the family but rather than using the basic color image from Google, I came to the ink-carving for several reasons: one, to add the somewhat aged theme and two because it reminds me (both ink caring and color) of some art created years ago by someone from my own family.  

More to come and this cover and the theme lead to stories and more stories, A reflection of changing times.
