Bad Cover Revisited

virginheat, originally uploaded by odelapaz.

I'm in the midst of finding art for my new book and its proven to be very difficult for this particular book.

Part of the problem with finding cover art for it is the book is pretty "literal." And what I mean by that is it's heavily steeped in long narrative poems. I could very well put up pictures of orchards and apples, but I don't want the cover to be as literal as the poems in the book. We'll see.

But I also don't want to have a cover like Mr. Shames's classic, Virgin Heat.

Oh dear lord.

Yes,I've posted this image before. It's too good to be forgotten. And let it be a lesson to all of you. . .
