I do wonder if the generic half head has been photoshopped in and they've just hung on the dress on a shop dummy!

That's because they're all over Istock images like a rash. I've used a doctored version of this model but a different shot on my forthcoming book trailer for The Summer Queen - purchased at Istock. :) Edited to add that if you go to Shutterstock or Istock you'll find half the bookcovers features on ...

[quote=""Misfit""]K, would it be easy to order a 'carriage' on the fly to get the ladies out of London?[/quote] Just catching up here after a weekend away from the PC.

You guys can help me answer my questions or not. Or just share in my pain. I simply have to get this out somewhere before I burst.
