WOW! It's a beautiful cover. :)Thank you for the post.
Wowzers! Can't wait for it. She was....interesting, fascinating. Among other traits.
Oh my goodness...this looks fabulous!
I like it!!!! Just love those gowns.....
I am one who LOVES to read about her (you know this!)- I'm setting up a look-out point!
Lovely dress but want the headless cover trend to go away, HATE not seeing the entire face!
Woot Woot!! I can't wait for this one, absolutely loved The Last Queen and C W Gortner is such a nice fellow!
Me, too! I can't wait to get my hands on this! BTW -- Gortner commented on the whole "headless woman" trend on Hist-Fic Chick:http://histficchick.blogspot.com/2009/10/cover-art-alert-cw-gortners-confessions.htmlLezlie
I'm so glad you all like it; I'm thrilled, too! Thank you so much, Amy, for posting it. I'm looking forward to visiting again soon when I go on tour for the book's release.
Lezlie - it's odd I guess that I have the opposite of the typical reaction to a headless cover, because it seems they sell because people are turned of by seeing the whole face - I'm turned off by the headlessness and would, if I knew nothing about the books, be more likely to pick up a book without a headless cover - not even neccesarily showing the face but could be something such as a full view from the back, or a landscape... it's just the chopped up nature I dislike, I feel like I'm not seeing the whole picture and it drives me *nuts*!I really hope marketing trends change someday. I'm finding I like young adult covers more lately because they are not headless as often.
Rebecca ~ You're not alone, that's for sure! A lot of people don't like the trend, but it must have worked well with their focus groups. :-) I like the side/back view idea, too. There is still mystery, but at least the woman has a head!Lezlie
I really like this one too. I think it's because I like red.
That's a gorgeous cover!
