Roxanne commented on the cover, but what do the rest of you think?
They were aiming at something non-genre, which I think just means it doesn’t have bullets or handcuffs on it. The image itself doesn’t tell you anything about the plot, but it does evoke a definite mood.
I like the cover a lot, but I guess what I’m wondering is, if you saw this cover on the other side of a bookstore, would you walk over to look at it? From a publisher’s point of view, the purpose of the dust jacket is to make someone want to pick the book up. This one does that for me, but what do I know–most of my favorite authors are either dead or out of print.
