furry ... mock-up book cover

Each year, for the last three, I've posted -somewhere through the creation process- a mock cover for my NaNoWriMo novel. This year is no exception!

I want to thank Aerak (mfwolf) for being my model. He's a great fursuiter and a good friend!

Here it is, folks, the cover to "furry".

The Interview

This is a dream I just had. I woke up a few minutes ago with this fresh in my mind. Mr. Peller looked like Jeff Goldblum (and sounded like him). I simply had to write this down as soon as I woke up; it was amazingly cool and will -no doubt- become the kernal of a story to write! Sure, I dashed this out very quickly, but it's pretty interesting...

The Interview

by David J Rust

4:56am, Tuesday, December 12, 2006

December, cold and dry, still clung to David’s suit as he sat at Mr. Peller’s desk while the man flipped through his application and résumé. His dark eyes scanned the ivory paper intently but with a familiarity that demonstrated it was merely for show. Clearly the copy he’d sent to Arbogast Publishing two weeks before had been carefully read and digested long before he’d actually walked into the room and sat down. And, by the very nature of his being here and being offered the chance to pitch his credentials to the Director Editor himself, David felt very sure that the job would be his.

With that, Mike Peller opened the door for David and ushered him inside.
