The Covers of the Dream Bucket

When John Cooke designed the cover of The Dream Bucket,
he wanted to make it look mysterious. He pointed out that people would wonder what went on in that old cabin and what people dreamed about. (iStock 000004593971)
Years ago, I'd considered using a bucket of money,The Dream Bucket is much more than a pile of money.
(iStock_000002976274) but no one seemed interested.

Using the old house attracted quite a bit of attention. We found a house that almost matched the description in the novel. The house is larger than the one where the Camerons lived. Also it's missing the kitchen door.

We sliced off most of the house, because I wanted to focus on the window where Zoe sat every night for hours while her children slept. She crouched on an inverted bucket and prayed. From her perch she also defended her family. I don't want to spoil the story for you by telling too much.

First John designed it long and skinny to meet the regulations for a Kindle book.

When it is released as an audio book, it will need to be square. Also he added the name of the narrator, Clay Lomakayu, to the front cover. As soon as the audio book is ready,  you will receive a notice.

In the meantime, feel free to download a copy of the Kindle version, which is free July 1 and 2. After then it will cost $2.99.
