I kinda like that cover, actually. Except... why is the medical symbol there?
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

I don't know, I think it's sci-fi/fantasy so I didn't really read the description.

Tudor fantasy fiction? That's a thing now? A new subgenre for Philippa Gregory, maybe.

Well, if they can have Tudor vampires I guess anything is possible:

That picture reminds of me of the 2nd season of "The Tudors" DVD covers.

Tell the vampire couple to stop looking like they want me to join them, it's weirding me out.

Lol, you're right, they do have a "Don't you want to come join our freaky vampire sex?" look.

Remember this one? Used to be in white, this is the first color I've seen added to it. Looks nice to me, apart from the fact that the trim at the bottom gets cut off pretty obviously...

I'm in the midst of making a Mycenaean costume--Mycenaean, not Minoan; no bare breasts--so that I can do some photo shoots for cover pics. Good Mycenaean cover art is so hard to come by! My goal is ultimately to make those images available on stock photo sites so that my work can one day be featured in the Deja Vu Book Covers thread! ;) :D
