Visuals are important

In my writing world visuals have always been important to me.  While writing In Between Goodbyes I always had at hand the painting I had done that would be the cover and a crudely drawn plan of the basement apartment.  Because I knew the lay of the land where In Season was set I could always visualize where my characters were milling around.  The Shepherd's Image was a bit different  but I St. Francis was a place I knew intimately in my youth and, of course, General Seminary is always in my heart.
So now Adelaide is back in my life and I am visualizing all sorts of churches around Turner City.  The below (which I hope will become the cover) is how I see St. Peter's, a church on the reservation overlooking Turner City.
