Something like this, maybe . . .
The illustration above is the latest idea for a new banner for henrykisor.com, the web site devoted to my books. It's by no means the final version, but it's getting there.
A number of folks suggested the site's focus be sharpenened -- on the mystery novels, not my books in general. And so the language in the banner (see the blog entry for September 27 below) was changed.
More than one proposed the addition of mystery-novel symbols, such as a badge and gun. Done. (My series hero, Sheriff Steve Martinez, carries a retro weapon, an old-fashioned but highly reliable revolver.)
The red-tailed hawk portrait perhaps should give way to a fresher woodsy photograph for a background, but I haven't found the right one yet. More rummaging in the archives will be required.
Stay tuned, and please keep on with the suggestions. Thank you.
