Cover Reveal!

Today is cover reveal day for Book 7 of the American Patriot Series, and voilĂ , here it is! I’ve been waiting to reach this stage of production for a long time, and I know many of my readers have been too! We’re making progress: Forge of Freedom is set to release in October 2022. 

I chose this image of General George Washington surrendering his commission as commander in chief of the Continental Army to Congress because it exemplifies the hallowed tradition of our republic that the civil authority of our government is in control of the military establishment instead of the other way around, unhappy examples of which are evident in a number of countries around the globe. Bless our Founders for their wisdom! This scene will appear toward the end of Forge of Freedom.

I gave fuller details on this painting by John Trumbull in a previous post, and you’ll find it here.  The original painting hangs in the United States Capitol rotunda in Washington D.C.

Please leave a comment. I’d love to have your feedback on the cover!
