I'd like to thank everyone who commented on Facebook with congratulations and encouragements. You folks mean the world to me.
Photo was taken on Biscay Bay, France, looking toward the North Atlantic. Gundula & I were there on a beautiful, windy day that was clearly
wonderful for sailing. The site is north on the coast from where U799 would have put in at Lorient, France. Hard to consider being on a U-boat, heading out to engage the enemy, knowing how you might die.
An update about the cover: Gundula felt it best if I found a more local graphic designer to help me, since she & I can't seem to get together. That may be easier said than done. We'll see.
In the meantime, I'll add more photos to show how words inspired travel for EMERALD TARGET. (Click on picture to enlarge.)
