Yesterday I received the cover art for my May, 2009 release, TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET. It's gorgeous and just what I envisioned when I sent directions to the art department. In the first scene of the book, there's an accident on a Breckenridge, CO ski slope, and Claire has to position her skis in an X on the slope to show the ski patrol where the victim is. The colors are breathtaking and give you a chill. I love how the artist "tied" it in with the gift bow theme of the first book, A REAL BASKET CASE. I'm pleased as punch with this beautiful cover and would love to receive comments on it. What do you think?

Comment, you ask? Didn't I used to have comments turned off on this blog? Yes, I did, because I didn't want to have spam or porn appear and I wasn't sure I wanted to check all comments. I've finally decided to turn on comments, with checking, for awhile and we'll see how it goes!

Wow! I love it! The cover alone will sell a lot of books, Beth. :)

Congrats on your success! I found out about your site through CozyMysteryKorner on yahoo.

When will A REAL BASKET CASE come out in paperback? Paperbacks fit better in my purse, so I can read during my lunch break. :-)

My publisher only buys hardcover and large-print rights, so it's up to my agent to sell the paperback rights. No deal has been offered yet from another publisher, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
