it's all a little spooky this afternoon. Having a wee pause before the last frantic edit of the New Rakes, I thought I'd check Amazon. Et voila:
And just as I find that, lightning, thunder, hail and monsoon. Not kidding. Hailstones the size of frozen peas.
I hope this is a good omen. I'm hoping hard that the ending works, that my editor likes it, that readers will like it.
Not overly keen on the 'X factor' strapline (would have preferred 'sex and sex and rock n roll'). And why is it yellow? But the couple are pretty and the
good god. This is biblical weather. Sheet lightning. I'm actually a bit scared.
the crowd scene underneath is rocking. Just right.
Kara has pink hair in that pic. I don't think she has pink hair. Actually, I haven't really specified her hair colour. Is that very bad? I've hardly described the heroine much at all. It's quite a tight POV to her and I just couldn't do the 'look in the mirror and admire the hair' thing.
Okay, sometime soon I'll have to stop worrying about it and send it off and hope it's good.
Just after I've studied that cover very obsessively for a while. The lips aren't quite as pretty-pouty as I think Tam's are, but he's got a bit of punky black hair going on. Which could work. What do you think?
