Here it is folks, the “full” cover for the print edition of GHOST SNIPER. (Of course, the ebook edition only requires a front cover because ebooks don’t have back covers!)
What’s particularly cool about this book cover is that it has a matte finish, which is something I’ve wanted on one of my books for long time, but haven’t been able to convince anyone to do … with the exception of The History Press, which issues its nonfiction books with a matte (non-glossy) cover.
Here’s the back cover copy:
June 6, 1944. On the dawn of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, two snipers find themselves fighting a battle all their own. One is a backwoods hunter from the Appalachian Mountains in the American South, while the other is the dreaded German “Ghost Sniper” who earned his nickname on the Eastern Front. Locked in a deadly duel across the hedgerow country of France, the hunter matches wits and tactics against the marksman, both of them one bullet away from victory—or defeat—as Allied forces struggle to gain a foothold in Europe.
The cover designer also included a couple of “blurbs” for SHARPSHOOTER because it’s a related book and we didn’t have any handy for the new novel:
Praise for Sharpshooter, also by David Healey
“Sharpshooter has the feel of a techno-thriller, the kind offered by Tom Clancy or Dean Koontz … Sharpshooter moves quickly and is filled with all manner of intrigue.”— The Civil War News
“Healey’s got a gift for recreating history, complete with compelling characters and the ring of authenticity in every scene.” — C.A. Mobley, best-selling author of Rites of War and Rules of Command
The print books are now on their way, or so I’ve been told, and should be available soon. Thanks for taking a look!
