It has arrived the new cover art of C.W. Gortner's new novel "The Confessions of Catherine De Medici". I am so excited about the release of this novel I can barely hold on anymore! I LOVE the cover, I think it turned out spectacular! A little dark because Catherine was a dark woman. I have pretty much accepted the fact that in historical fiction the model's heads are cut off because why leave the head? If you leave the head then the face should have some resemblance to the character in the novel. Which today there probably is not too many women out there who look like historical fiction heroins, or what we idealize them to look like. I am now at the point where I expect it to be cut off. My hope is that this cover will be able to entice some new historical fiction readers into exploring new frontiers in novel land.
Thank you C.W. for sharing this juicy tid bit, we are waiting patiently.
