So… thanks to the modern miracle of Junk folders, I did not actually see the go ahead to post my cover until today.
Since I have been sitting on this cover for a month or two (it feels like TWO YEARS), I was surprised to hear that the cover had gone live on Amazon.com. I emailed my editor to ask if I could post the pre-pub version that I had, since it was live on Amazon.com, and she said…We sent you the cover link, because I was CCed on it. But, politely. And…she was right. So I have been waiting an extra four unnecessary days T.T.
But, in the theory that late is better than never: Cast in Flame. This is the cover that I went to the photo shoot for. I had a rough idea of the design from that shoot because Kathleen Oudit had the rough design with her; I watched Kathleen and the photographer, Glenn Mackay, work with the model to take a series of shots over a couple of hours, one of which graces the cover.
And then the photo itself was sent to Shane Rebenschied. And now: I have the finished cover. It is my favourite of the Cast covers to date, and I say that as someone who has liked all of her Cast covers.
