Some of you have probably already seen the completed cover. Sorry or the delay. I’ve been a bit under the weather, but I figured I should blog about it anyway. Of course, this cover is a special case because Trent is featured this time. I’m sure we all knew it’d be him, so no big surprises there. Overall, I think the cover is quite nice. While the model’s not bad, he still doesn’t look like how I imagine Trent. I actually think this model would be a better fit as Pritkin from the Cassie Palmer books by Karen Chance. He’s more rugged whereas with Trent I sense more of an air of regality, softer lines, lighter blond hair, etc. You know, like how an elf should look. Though I have my short list he’s almost impossible to place for me, so I’m not surprised that I’m not over the moon about it. I’m pleased with the gesture to put him on the cover though. But to be quite honest, this cover could say “brown paper bag” and pretty much be one and I’d still read this book.
I’m even more pleased with Kim’s gesture of providing the first chapter of the book. I didn’t read it right away, but the curiosity got to me. I need an ARC and SOON! If you’re interested in reading chapter one, you can find it on Kim’s website here:
