You can't judge a book by its cover...

Snapshot by the ridiculously talented Riendo
Well, yes. I know it's Tuesday. And I know I created Two-Fer Tuesdays—but I'm going to be out and about today, so I won't be able to double-post. (I think that sounds so filthy.) Instead, I wanted to put up this photo by Riendo, soon to be a new cover for Pretty Things Press.

I have to say, one of the reasons I'm so excited about publishing my own collections is being able to work with someone as talented as she is. I'm not a cover designer, and I've been told on multiple occasions that books won't sell without people on the covers. But honestly, I am at a place where if even one reader likes what I'm doing, I'll be satisfied. I cannot wait to use this picture. Gorgeous, gritty, palm trees, chrome. It's art. Flat out.

Of course, you can't judge a book by its cover—but I'm hoping that my interiors will live up to the sexy exteriors created by the remarkable Riendo.

I absolutely love the original cover. But I hear where you're coming from. I feel the cover should somewhat reflect the story, and none of the others seems to do so.
