You may recall how horrified I was when my French publisher chose the photo of a geisha to put on my fourth novel THE ISLAND OF EXILES. This is number five, THE HELL SCREEN. They tried harder, because I was so unhappy, and this one is much better and fits the story. In fact, I like it a lot. What I still don't understand is that they think historical mysteries will sell better with modern covers. There is a message here: don't write historical mysteries!

Mille mercis, Dana. I can use it.

That's a nice looking cover. It catches the eye, and it makes you wonder what's inside, which is what a cover is supposed to do.

Bonne chance.
