Eye of the Beholder

So, I'm now in the position of selecting images and even hiring models for some of Spencer Hill's cover art, and I have a dilemma.

So, what's a publisher with a conscience to do? Plech--I think I'll stick to fire flowers and artful shadows. At least my own series has natural-looking models--speaking of, have you seen the new cover for Adversary?

Yeah, they glow--they're in love. It's a G-positive thing.
Happy Monday!
