Obviously what the lady wants is the President's lunch! :p sorry, couldn't resist.
I think all the black costume ones are clearly from the same photo shoot with doctoring.

There's an awful lot of black around in historical fiction too at the moment - it's obviously 'on trend.' I don't have the pictures to post but Bruce Holsinger, Patricia Bracewell, Sharon Kay Penman and Giles Kristian have all gone for the black look recently - or their publisher's have. Authors don...

That PG cover is dreadful! That can't be right. Perhaps it's a marker while they do a proper one!

Not for me. Looks as if she is struggling in or out of a dress that doesn't fit and reminds me a bit of a beetle where they can't decide whether to take off or not!

The first five minutes are available on a clip. This was the programme where the researcher picked my brains for over an hour and then backed off when mention of putting my name on the credits was mooted. I've watched the first five minutes which is available for UK viewers. It's interesting but IMO...

Mythica, it's to do with rights and different publishers. For e.g. I am published by LittleBrown in the UK, but by Sourcebooks in the US. Neither has the right to publish my books in a country other than their own unless they have agreed territorial rights. Sourcebooks were slow off the mark in offe...

I'm reading and enjoying God of Vengeance at the moment. It's a page turner - bloodthirsty and battle-heavy as I expected it to be but that's not a complaint just a statement.

Prefer the lighter one because of the use of light and the colours. The dark is too dark. But I don't like either cover. That pointing finger looks masculine at best and alien at worst!
