Someone far more clever than I about writing books that vast (vast vast) numbers of people want to buy gave me some advice on Bad Apple. I, being me, didn't take any of it. I thought it was not the story I wanted to tell or that I had told. It was exactly the story he would tell. The Bad Apple books are not about revenge. They're not about getting back or getting even. Doing well is the best revenge and Neal is given an opportunity to become who she truly (wink) is. She takes it and trying to be a sensible person moves on with her life. It's not an easy book, or an easy trilogy. The violence is real, the situations are real and the pain is real.
As I was rethinking a cover I did for someone else, I thought about Bad Apple and all the aspects that come into play maybe I could change the cover and see if Brian's advice was right. Then after it was created I wondered if anyone would recognize what it's a picture of.
For the 3rd time this week I changed the cover on a book, Amazon congratulated me on being successfully published and the cover is still the old one. So I'm sorry (really sorry) about that. But if you recognize what this is, please leave a comment.
