Just say yes to Flight of the Highlanders

As a wordsmith, I never quite believed that old saw about a picture being worth 1,000 words. But here at last I discover a case in point: the cover of my forthcoming book.

Over at HarperCollins Canada, Alan Jones is the man who went the extra mile to make this look the way it does. And this, of course, is just the beginning.  Flight of the Highlanders: The Making of Canada features more than 60 images. We’ve wrestled those into place and I’ve written captions (what in the newspaper game we used to call cutlines). Alan and a few other folks (led by Stephanie Conklin) are adding those and creating four maps and I’ll get one more look at printed pages before HCC produces an ARC — an Advance Reading Copy. Are we excited yet?
