The Beagle Who Bit Me
This is proposed cover for my new book. I've been promised that it will not be the final cover. And I really hope that is the case.
The image would be great for a greating card, but it is a bit hokey and sweet for me--and for the content of my book. But the real problem is that people who love beagles might pick up the book, assuming there are beagle stories inside. And there is one--about a crazy beagle who mauled me in New York City.
I'd suggested a plain yellow mutt. No dice. Then I urged them to consider a gorgeous shot of Brando by the same photographer that did the cover for The Dogs Who Found Me. No answer yet on that.
What do you all think? Let's take a poll!
