A beautiful sunset–always, on Topsail Island. The search for the right picture for the cover of PELAGIC continues. Wasn’t sure I wanted a surfboard in the photo, but low and behold as I was snapping away, a young surfer with the absolutely correct surfboard walked by–long story short, he let me use the board for a few minutes–thank you Kyle the surfer–he was surely an omen.

WRITING TIP : I find that trusting “omens” justifies my gut feelings–this works great when writing–it reassures me that I should go in a particular direct. Yes, it works very well until I get another gut feeling that I should go in another.
