Would you like to see something cool? We’ve got the cover art for Glamour in Glass. It is really early to have this, but since Tor has given the okay, and it is gorgeous, I’ve get to show it to you.
You’ll notice that we’re moving to a photograph rather than historic art. The idea is that this will help catch a wider audience, which I think is likely. In fact, Tor had looked at doing that for the paperback of Shades of Milk and Honey but finding a photo that fit the tone and period was hard.
So for Glamour in Glass, they brought in Larry Rostant, who specializes in photos of historic periods. He created this specifically for my book and I’m delighted by the little details in it. I do recognize the fact that I’m geeking out over her kid gloves, of the correct length, is a sign of spending too much time in the Regency. But still! And that delicate fichu peeking out at the bodice’s neckline. So, lovely.
It will be exciting to see what happens when the designer gets involved and adds the type. I can’t wait. I so love books and the people who make them.
Meanwhile, I will tell you that on June 7th, when the paperback of Shades of Milk and Honey comes out, it will contain Chapter One of Glamour in Glass.
