An Interesting Look At Budapest
This is a video of Budapest shot from what I believe is a remote control helicopter. Interesting perspectives of some of the places that make an appearance in the novel, The City of Earthly Desire. Enjoy!
Time For a New Cover
In the next week or so, The City Of Earthly Desire will have a new cover. I don't know what prompted me to want to change it. One morning I woke up, looked at the cover, and felt it was time for another take.
The current cover is an image by the Austrian artist Egon Schiele. I thought it encapsulated many of the books ideas and themes and some of its subject matter - painting, art, sexuality, the difference between art and smut, etc.
At the time, I also believed I had to include some sort of "erotic" image on the cover to make readers aware that the book does deal with sexual themes. I chose a painted nude because I believed it projected that message without sinking to the level of most erotic and romance novel covers that employ bodice-ripping images to lure their readers.
In retrospect, I am not sure if my choice of cover was all that great and I don't know how people saw it or reacted to it. In any event, I'm going to try something else in the very near future - something that strays from the erotic. Something a little more . . . Stay tuned.
