Photographs of naked women never got in the way of sales of pretty well anything, Sam.

Well, they didn't do much for The Fanny Farmer Cookbook.

My cover was rejected, maybe because she had clothes on?

I think the cover you chose is lovely, Alex. I am excited to get a copy.

It sort of makes me want to see the back cover as well.

Sam - thanks for the feedback. Hmmm about the cover .. cover me part, it's been receiving commendations only for its artistry and layout (from both males and females), with one mild exception. A friend who shall remain nameless (... except she's been one of our DG event hosts) sent in a warning a couple of days ago to "look out for the fire-breathers". And now, with your cautionary note, I'll brace myself just in case them 'fire-breathers'!

Terri - your artwork was, is wonderful, clothes and all -- thanks! As I'd indicated to you, it might find a place in future projects.

Roger - the back image is available at the anthology page on Able Muse Press here, and at Amazon here.

And thanks, everyone else for looking and commenting.

Cheers,
...Alex

I've had mine for weeks! And I'm still waiting for the karma to kick in around here. Anyway, the cover certainly sets a high bar for the poetry and prose. And why not aim high.
