I’m getting ready to publish a new short story. This one is a contemporary romance. The plot revolves around a woman who has been living as a virtual recluse for the past two years, since her husband was killed in Afghanistan. A friend talks her into taking some creative writing classes, and while at school, she bumps into the painting teacher. They strike up a conversation based on their mutual artistic talents and interests, and she ends up modeling for his 1920’s-inspired Impressionist painting.
While none of these covers actually look like the painting described in the book (because I can’t paint), the main character, Carol, does get her Louise Brooks on for the painting. So these are some of the options I’m considering.
So who wants to help me pick?
