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!
