Once again, the cover artist at Soul Mate Publishing has outdone herself. Just got the first cover art draft for Strange Bedfellows, and not unexpectedly, I’m absolutely delighted.
I asked Debby (Founder and Senior Editor) if the cover artist was the same as for Return from Avalon (and Points West), but she is typically busier than a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest and hasn’t answered yet.
So without further ado, here it is.
The love potion is in too big a container (a ‘flask’ instead of a ‘vial’). There should only be enough for a single use. It’s distilled down, so it should look thick. Here’s my vision of a vial, although I’m definitely not hard core about this (think the neck adds more interest than just a straight glass vial). I like the cork a lot, so it could go in the vial.
Definitely my fault. I indicated “bottle of love potion” as one of the key objects in the book. Here’s the image I included in the email.
ON AN UNRELATED TOPIC: If you haven’t checked out the 3-author interview series that Stella is writing for the Examiner, you need to. The interview format has become more interactive, more snarky, and more fun. This week we’re writing a fiction vignette with the 3 (or maybe 4?) of us alternating paragraphs. That’ll be out this coming Sunday.
