The cover for the second Molly book is almost done, and it looks spectacular. I can't wait to see what he does with the rest.
If I may say so, I think this was a good decision. I do not like the current covers of the Molly books, please no offense. (the covers for the Wool Omnibus are all fine)
For myself, covers are giving me the the first impression of the book (obviously), which is very important, especially when the author is new to me.
I am looking forward to see the new ones. I am curious how the new covers will influence your sale numbers; maybe you can report about that on your homepage.
