I was poking around Amazon this morning (I'm not one of those paranoid authors who checks her Amazon stats constantly--just a couple times a week), and wondered if they'd posted the cover for the large-print edition yet.
And, oh, is it BAD.
What is that? It has to be the absolute WORST skull and crossbones I have ever seen. I mean, it looks like I might have drawn it! (And I have no artistic skills, believe me.)
Someone must have put all of 30 seconds of thought into this cover.
Now, compare it to the BEAUTIFUL cover that was done by the fabulous Teresa Fasolino for the paperback edition of the book.
No contest, eh?
It's a good thing that large-print editions aren't generally bought by the cover art. As it is, large-print editions don't sell terribly well, but looking at this cover, I'd say my poor LP version of Bookplace Special is doomed.
What do you think?
UPDATE: There's more to the story. Check out my blog post of 3/5/10 on The Cozy Chicks Blog.
