cover art for Miserere

For those of you who don't know, authors have no input regarding the cover art of their novels. For me, that was a good thing, because I never, NEVER could have conceptualized something this good. Night Shade is known for its lovely cover art, so I wasn't concerned about the art for my debut novel, Miserere. I knew it would be good.

I wasn't prepared for awesome.


Isn't it awesome?

The art is by Michael C. Hayes, and you can find more of his work here.

I love the way Rachael is looking at Lucian and how both women are positioned with their backs to one another. I also love the way Lucian is between them, looking at neither of them. Each face captures the essence of the character and the colors are sensuous and moody like the story.

I'm absolutely thrilled!
