If you’ve got any thoughts about it, I’d love to know. In fact, how about this:
Tell me what story you think this cover tells in, say, a long sentence (or two) and the plotline that most appeals to me, or that makes me laugh the most, will be rewarded with a paperback copy of Speaking of Love when it’s published next year. (Any obvious adaptation of the synopsis from the book’s website will most definitely not qualify. And if you’ve read the book in hardback, you’ll have to rid your head of its subject matter and come up with something solely inspired by the paperback cover.)
I look forward to reading what you write because much debate goes on in the book trade about covers, about what kinds of cover work and what kinds don’t. But publishers, wholesalers and retailers don’t usually ask the book-buying public what they think before a cover goes to press … .
