CONIFER Cover Revealed

Who's the Dick?

Who’s the Dick?

Some folks will ask, “Who’s the Dick on the cover of Conifer?”
“It’s Dick Cheney.”
“Why?”
It’s no secret that Conifer has been published on a shoestring budget. My original designs did not work well with Amazon’s CreateSpace cover templates. I had to come up with a single image that encapsulated Conifer. It’s about the Military Industrial Complex, introducing young adult readers to subversive thought, and the question “What is human?” A sneering Dick Cheney sums it all up. Whether or not this was truly the appropriate cover does not matter much as this will be a run of only 50 copies. The next time Conifer is seen will be as Part Two in a single volume entitled Saucerville. So wait ten years and the Dick will be gone.
