I have had my cover art for Twelfth Night picked for a while–possibly even before I picked my cover for What You Will. I found this painting when I was first looking into the idea of using public domain images for my covers, and I just fell in love with it. It’s sexy and playful and, as the post where I first saw it pointed out, “oddly powerful.”
It was not necessarily going to be one of my covers, except that I found an image to use for the first novella that worked very well with this picture–the girls are both in yellow, they have similar masks on, and they have similar hair (which is necessary since the two heroines are twins). That parity made up my mind for me.
So, without further ado, allow me to introduce my cover art for Twelfth Night: “Pierrot’s Embrace” by Guillaume Seignac.
