Cool "mock-up"

As for the rest of the Molly covers, I have this mock-up Jasper sent for book two. I haven't shown this anywhere else, though I may use it for my Kobo and iBook versions until the final art comes my way. I think it's breathtaking.

The guy is classically trained. A literal "masterclass" artist. And he does my book covers on the side.

I swear, I'm a bigger fan of this guy's art than he can possibly be of my writing.
Wow! Yeah, that 's quite some "mock-up"!! Really fantastic!

On a related note, there's a mobileread rule about the size of an attacked graphic. I don't remember what is the limit, but yours is pretty large [just looked it up it's 600x600]. Be aware that alternatively you can upload a graphic then display it like so,Click image for larger version
