Coming Soon.... The Man I Was

And NO, I have not had a sex change operation.  My second novella in the "Goodwill Mystery Series" is titled The Man I Was.  It is about a man who is in a bicycle accident and ends up with amnesia.  Our key character, Evelyn, helps him solve the mystery as he fights with the concept, "What if I don't like the man I was?" 

Last night I typed the last word in the last chapter.  I added another sentence at the end and immediately deleted it.  "NOPE! It is done, right there." I said to myself.  I immediately went to the beginning and started the re-write.  As soon as that is done, I will have my proof readers go over it.  It is their chance to beat me up in regards to my bad grammar, bad spelling, and words that are valid words but wrong in the place they are in (auto correct goof ups.)  My goal is to be ready for publication in about 6 weeks.

Today I went to Erik's Bike shop in St. Cloud.  They allowed me free run of the service department and store to take photos.  My 5 favorites (out of 50) are shown here.

Option 1
Don't you love the spokes and shadows here?  I just wish that I could laid this across some green grass.

Option 2
 This second option I like the stark contrast between the dark frame and the clean light gears.  In the shadows of the background you can make up more bikes lined up.

Option 3
 This bike was in the repair shop.  I liked the subliminal message that the old, dirty, grungy g
ears say about the old man that he was.

Option 4
 Something about the lines of this frame, blending with the uncomfortable position of the peddle with the rounded wheel in the background.

Option 5
I love and hate the same think about the fifth option.  Bike upon bike blending in with the others so that you really don't notice anything about any one bike.  On that same line it is really cluttered and busy and the title may get lost in the business.

Do you have a favorite?
