I wrote a wilderness survival thriller for middle-grade readers, grades 4-8, and I’m really proud of it. Can’t wait for this book to see the light of day. Think: Hatchet meets Misery . . . and there’s a dog. Siblings lost in the mountains.
Of course, this is a business that involves a lot of waiting. And then more waiting.
And then out of the indigo I get a jpeg of the final cover in an email from my editor, Liz — so I’m sharing it here with my best internet friends.

An absolute honor and pleasure to illustrate this cover for you, James! -Scott
Glad to hear from you, Scott. I feel the same.
