The German edition of JET was nominated for an award in the Beauty And The Book contest. I’m particularly happy about this as that’s my favorite cover to date.

But there’s a problem. It needs votes. Your vote.

Could you please go to the website, click EN in the upper right corner to choose English, and then scroll about halfway down the page to the JET cover, and vote for it by clicking the little butterfly? I’d owe you one. And you know how prompt I am about paying.

I’m starting on another one with Clive now, and it’s a humdinger of a plot. Can’t tell you how happy I am with it. Here’s to hoping the first one with him, releasing in September, does well. I’m enjoying inhabiting that Fargo world. Fingers are crossed!

Thanks for voting on the cover. You rock.

    Voted. It only lets you vote once per IP address, so no Chicago style funny business allowed. I’ll get my mom to do it too. Hope you win!

    Done. It’s Die Macht Des Nimbus, right?

    Just kidding. Voted for JET. Great cover, and great book. Now will you please move the series down the Amazon Pulp popularity charts so that I can have a shot at the top spot?

    Hello Blake,

    They say that when you start to fall, you fall fast and far.

    From the cover of the Wall Street Journal…
    From co-authoring with Cussler…
    From running record-selling titles on Kindle…

    To this. Sad. Very sad.

    Next stop: Washington, DC, I guess, where EVERYONE buys votes…

      The Gods first raise up those they would destroy. At least I’ll make a hell of a blaze on reentry.

      We have to have a plan, after all.

        OK, OK, I voted for the cover.
        I voted in German: “Ja, ja, dis is de cover dat I am vanting to vin, schweinhunt!”
        They weren’t amused, but it worked…

    Jet’s cover is great! Mine was an honest vote for it. No bribe needed, unless you wanna to ease your conscience… (I like diamonds and white chocolate – jus’ sayin’…)

    It’s my fav Jet cover too. I voted. Best of luck, Russell.

    The cover is great. I think mine was the 58th vote for it.

    Yeah, it’s almost worth paying you just to have a finger in one of your pies. Don’t get excited. I did say “almost”.

    Tis a nice cover. Good luck!

    Great cover, Russell. You have a lot of votes on there (obviously having a lot of friends).

    While I was at it, I submitted my SIROCCO, Storm over Land and Sea – who can argue with a Rembrandt painting ($5M reward for its recovery from the FBI to boot). So, perhaps you might return the favor to “click the butterfly.”

    Great to follow your success.

    Voted! I bought and read everything you wrote. Big fan! Can’t wait for the next Jet after The Sanctuary. There will be another one right?
