So, I got through maybe ten pages of editing today. Wahey! only 350 or so to go…
Still, I did look at the most epic and amazing wonderment that is the intended cover-art. I’ve included a sneak tiny peek here, because I need to get the final and pay the guy first (and he’s an awesome guy, will post links to his stuff when I get the finished piece), but suffice to say I’m freaking excited about it.
So more generally, when you’re browsing in a bookstore, what do you hate in cover art? And then the inverse, what kind of cover art makes you want to pick books up (assuming it’s not just greased chests & heaving bosoms, or your favourite author’s name emblazoned in metallic puce across most of the cover)?
