Captain’s Surrender has a gorgeous new cover!
Eeeeeee! When I decided to stick with Samhain as the publisher for CS, it was partially because I really liked their covers, and I was hoping for something a bit more tasteful than the one it had previously. I was given the usual cover art questionnaire thing, and I filled it in exhaustively, hoping that would make a difference. I said I would like something that looked as though it was similar to False Colors. I would absolutely love a cover by Anne Cain because she was my cover art idol. I really wanted at least one man to be in uniform. Hair colour was important to me. If there had to be a naked torso, then I preferred the backs of men to their chests. I wanted a tall ship. And I hated overly muscular men and would like to make it clear that neither of my heroes had ever been inside a gym in their lives.
I know what it’s like doing cover art, now, so I expected for some of these suggestions to be met and some of them to be ignored, and I didn’t think I would really be lucky enough to get an Anne Cain cover.
But I did! EEEEEEEE! And she, cover art goddess that she is, has given me everything I wanted and more! I didn’t ask for the antique map of the world, or the lovely swirly bits, but I adore them. And oh, look at auburn-haired Josh! Isn’t he beautiful?! And Peter, looking black haired and aquiline, in his gorgeous uniform! SQUEE!
Thank you so much, Anne! You are a cover art genius. I am absolutely over the moon:
