And the story behind the pomegranate?  Well my daughter is very proud of my authorship and asked if she could pick the cover image this time.  How does a proud dad say no?  Then I had to figure out an interesting side story to the fruit.  Well just like FDMEE scripting, if you don’t cut into it right, you’re going to make a mess.  When you get it right, the result is oh so sweet.

And for anyone that is wondering why watermelon on the cover, my publisher (P8Tech) uses images of fruits or vegetables on the covers.
