The series name is Generations of Secrets. One secret is hiding in small barrels. About 10 years after I finished the story, I found this small barrel. Perfect for the cover (with a bit of preparation.)
I picked up stain for the first level of preparation. I even stained the metal to give it an antiqued look. My goal it to begin the photo shoot for the cover this weekend.
Within the next month, I hope to begin publishing the series, "Generations of Secrets"!
