And we have a cover!



Gotta say, I love this one, even if he's got strange hair and it's supposed to be cold outside, so why's he in a sleeveless undershirt? And they're surrounded by woods, so where are all the trees? And it's supposed to be raining constantly, so couldn't you have made his shirt wet?

But that's just nitpicking.

LOL! I know you don't have a say in what the art department does, though you do fill out all the info and submit it.

I'm never sure why the "powers that be" sometimes -- often -- ignore what the characters look like, the setting, etc. I would think the art work could be both reasonably accurate and eye-catching!

But maybe that's just too logical. Ha.

I love the cover and don't mind the shirt sleeves as it shows his biceps!

The cover will definitely make me pick this book out of the shelf.

Lol! I meant the sleeveless undershirt!

Sure, sure, but look at those arms!

Thanks, y'all.

Kea, it's really a matter of what they think will make people pick up the book. And I must admit, I really like the cover, even if it's not 100% accurate.

Nas and Carla, that's why I'm not complaining about the cover, despite the inaccuracies. ;)

He's my favorite cover model..still don't know his name though, lol.

He's really cute. He's also on the cover of my May book (because the hero of the May book is the twin of my April hero).

I had almost forgotten about the twin thing, and remembered when I saw the May cover..picked it up because of the model :-D Wish I knew his name though, but it makes it like mysterious, which is cool too :-)
