Lord Lightning's Cover Revealed!

I've been having to keep this under wraps for a few months but at last I can show it in public. Here is the cover for Lord Lightning. The type will be in gold foil.


Both the hero and heroine in the story are a lot older and far more English than the characters portrayed here, but they tell me this kind of cover sells books. If it works, I'm all for it.

So what do you think? Would this charm the pennies out of your purse?

I am just finishing up reading the page proofs today which marks a period in Lord Lightning's existence. When I am finished with the proofs I will never again have to read this particular book. To put this in context, I have read through the full manuscript of this novel from start to finish fourteen times since January 2009. Much as I love it, it will be good to move on.

Pamela,

Thanks so much for your very kind words! The waiting part is driving me crazy. It's almost a year since I got an offer for it and it's going to be another six months until the book comes out.

The traditional planet assigned to publishing in classical astrology is Jupiter, but I have concluded after spenind a few decades in the business that Saturn, planet of dificulty, frustration and delay. The only good thing about Saturn is that if you survive all the foregoing the work can endure.
