COVER ART

I'm waiting for cover art. Waiting to see how my lovely Sheikh Zahir and Diana have been portrayed on the cover of The Sheikh's Unsuitable Bride. I'm just being impatient. It won't be on sale retail until January, but an author worries about these things.

I did check on the art sheet details filled in by my editor and it seems likely that Diana will be in her chauffeur uniform. This could be fun, or it could be disastrous. Chewing my nails to the quick here, especially as while checking out the sheikh I looked over the cover "vision" for The Bride's Baby, my "spring bride" book.

Do you remember the purple shoes? Satin, embroidered, beaded, sparkly purple shoes that the lovely Anne McAllister spent valuable distraction time hunting down on the 'net for me?



Well, maybe my sweet ed was in a hurry because in the cover art form she wrote that the "bride is wearing purple...." Not the exquisitely described heavy cream silk dress and coat, appliqued and beaded and embroided to match to the shoes.

Gulp.

That would be The Bride of Dracula's Baby, then...

Ooh, what yummy shoes! I can't wait to read about them in your book. Which one of your characters is so fortunate as to own such fabulous footwear?

Hi Mary!

Miss Purple Shoes is Sylvie Duchamp Smith and her book, The Bride's Baby will be pub'd next April.

I've just seen the artwork for The Sheikh's Unsuitable Bride -- she doesn't get the uniform thank goodness, but it has a real Modern/Presents feel to it, which is quite weird. :)
