GYM DANDY, my first full length boy-meets-boy romance, re-releases this week.
Here’s the new 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.
