Night Hawk cover

Harlequin was very nice in sending this to me. Readers are ALWAYS fascinated by what goes into the making of a cover.
NIGHT HAWK is set in the Jackson Hole, WY area.

What I love in this one is that the Moulton Barn, in the background, is in the valley with the Tetons in the background. Whoever made this cover in the Art Department went out of their way to get the area “right’, which is always great (but doesn’t happen often.)

Every time I go up to the Grand Tetons (20 north of Jackson Hole, WY) and Yellowstone National Park (which is 50 miles norht of JH), I always stop and take photos of Moulton Barn. And here’s one of my recent photos of it. You can see they are the same barn….where reality meets fiction!
From a photographer’s viewpoint? Moulton Barn is an ICON and a “Bucket List” place for serious amateur and professional photographers. What’s nice is that it is 1.5 days away from where Ilive. I’ll be gong up to Caspar, WY for Kallypso Masters Kallycon featuring cowboy authors in late August, 2016.

And then? Why we’ll drive from Caspar afterward over to Jackson Hole and spend seven heavenly days shooting wildlife during rutting season in the Tetons National Park, and of course. I will make my annual visit to Moulton Barn and photographic again

If you’re coming to Kalycon/Caspar (and I hope you do!) maybe some of you will join me on our photographic hunt for Moose, Grizzly, Antelope, Elk, Deer, and other fabulous wild creatures that we love to photograph so much!

It is an ICONIC place for all photographers to come and shoot it and they come from around the world!
