But Stormy, what’s up with that cover?

GYM DANDY, my first full length boy-meets-boy romance, re-releases this week.

Here’s the new cover:

GymDandy_200and here’s the previous cover:

I’m noticing a slight similarity. You?

This is because I purchased the rights to that art after commissioning it exclusively for the book. I had gone on to Deviant Art and run a “bake off” by posting that I’d pay $100 to anyone who came up with a great cover for my book. Now this was 2008 so I had no idea what to offer. Several artists tendered drawings, and I loved this one by Miss Martinez. Once we had the final artwork, she signed a release and I sent her a cheque for $150. I was that pleased.

Deana C. Jamroz dropped in the titles for the MLR version, which looked great!

Now, my new fave cover artist, Willsin Rowe, reworked the titles to include the nifty new identifying banner he’d designed and now we have… ta da! A same-only-different cover for the re-release.

The text has been edited a little… and proofed a lot.

About Gina Storm Grant

I'm a writer and now, a newbie upcycler. I have 12 books published under 2 pen names. I've taken a 2-year hiatus from writing while I re-purposed my life, but the more I rescue furniture destined to become landfill, the more I feel inspired to write a new book. After all, I gotta do something while waiting for the next coat of paint to dry. Stick with me while I figure out the differences between chalk, milk and mineral paints, which stripper removes shellac and sticky stuff, and whether I want to do stencils, tansfers or decoupage. Oh, and which one is the drill and which the power screwdriver.
