Black Gold Book Cover by MisterMistoffelees Black Gold Book Cover by MisterMistoffelees
The faux book cover to my new The Very First Snoop and the Case of the Black Gold tale! For a limited time, exclusively on deviantArt...

The Lynda font gives it a bit of a Nancy Drew-style look. I hope you enjoy it!...

Thanks! It turned out better than I thought it would! Am currently starting a book cover for my old Stolen Santas tale at the behest of Toby Robin...

The first of my Christmas Snoop Sherlock Homes rip-offs--err, tributes--in which the young Snoops chase after someone mutilating plastic Santa Statues. A rip-o--tribute to "The Adventure of the Six Napoleons," although neither Holmes nor Watson got drowned in a freezing Cold Water Lake in their tale... :faint:

That's the scene I'm putting on the cover for that tale--Trish and Krysten tied together on the pier with the cinder block tied to their feet, just about to be pushed into the water...

There's was a NDCF cover akin to that...but the detail was so SMALL, you could barely make it out...which reminds me, I now have to go back & re-read all those old ND stories & update my DID source pages :faint:

Ahhhh . . . ! I can't say enough how happy I am that you've started making illustrated covers for your stories! Please don't say this is the first and last. I think it's one of the most fun parts about putting a series together.

I must say I did enjoy creating this one, Toby Robin! The process of drawing this one has left me a sort of template for the cover layout which I can use for others, and, well, I do have a Junior Snoop idea I'm starting, as well as a new Darius Allen Detective Club story and a Snoop Mommies idea I'm doing a little historical research on! And if I would go back and do retrospective covers for the old tales, which one should I start with?...

That's an easy one! The Snoops tale that got me writing again: The Case of the Stolen Santas.

For you, dearest Toby Robin, consider it done! Any particular scene you'd like on the cover?...

Easy again!

At the edge of the pier: "Time to go for a little swim, girls,” he chuckled nastily.

Of all the perils you've invented for all your Snoops, the end of Chapter Nine is still the scariest, most intense scene I've read at GDIT. My eyes got wide reading it over again to copy the quote.
