STATUS: Network is finally back up and running like a dream. Took all day though. On the upside, I got a lot of reading accomplished. It’s amazing how distracting answering email can be.

What’s playing on the iPod right now? HEART OF GLASS by Blondie

Since my network person had to commandeer the computer for a good portion of the day, I did a lot of partials reading etc. I took a break to read the latest issue of Publishers Weekly. They had the whole Frankfurt recap going on and that made me want to share some fun news for Cheryl Sawyer.

In the last couple of weeks, we’ve sold the Spanish and Russian rights to CODE OF LOVE.

And since I was on that foreign cover kick for the longest time, I thought I’d show you this gorgeous Spanish cover. I think this one could work quite effectively in the United States without blinking an eye.

Of course once could argue the whole symbolism of the sword etc. but I won’t go there.

    I’m a wannabe author so I couldn’t help notice how they made her name the most prominent part of the cover. Good for her. Maybe that’s a reflection of Corporate America always wanting the biggest name and symbol to be the last one who controlled the piece of art. Who knows….we just keep sending queries…heh, heh, heh…Congrats, Cheryl Sawyer, nice to see your name first and foremost. Best wishes for continued sucess.

    Spanish and French covers are usually good or great….and the Germans they love cleavage (at least for a friend of mine’s books they do)

    I do like the Spanish cover, but fromt he first time I saw it I have loved her american cover. You blogged about this once a long time ago, but Cheryl has been very, very, lucky with her covers. They are all absolutely gorgeous.
