For the King: another possible book cover
Blog reader Suzanne Levine suggested Gerard’s beautiful portrait of Madame Regnault de Saint-Angely for the cover of my second novel.
So this may boil down to a choice between Madame de Saint-Angely, and the painter Isabey. Both are portraits by Gerard, and very fine works of art.
Or my publisher’s designer might come up with a third idea…
It will turn on a marketing issue: is the emphasis going to be on the historical thriller aspect, which would call for a male figure, or the romantic themes of the novel?
Your opinion, as always, is most welcome. And thanks to Suzanne!
