Lost Souls of Savannah (revised cover)

Below is an image of the revised Lost Souls of Savannah cover. The original cover design (seen on the Amazon listing for the book) I did in sort of a rush for the publisher. It depicted a more Hoodoo-themed illustration, but my editor at Pineapple Press had requested something a bit more Savannah related. This is what I came up with, and I have to say, I think she was right to have me go back and do it again. I like this one much better.
In this wrap cover (not yet colored) we see Victor seranading the ghosts of Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah, Georgia. In particular, little Gracie Watson. Gracie Watson is one of the staple ghost stories in Savannah. She's also the first ghost story I would tell my tourists back in my ghost tour guiding days. While the story itself is a sad, but sweet one, the actual statue at her grave is rather creepy.

I'll post the color one soon!
