Last month, Jacob Louder and Lana Fox gave me one of the best birthday presents I’ve ever received – the cover for Roadhouse Blues. It’s retro and stylie and sleek and adorable, and I’m so goddamn in love with it that 3 weeks later, I still can’t quite express it.
Covers are tricky. It’s easy to end up with mixed feelings about the face your book gets, but the fact that Go Deeper Press is my dream publisher made the prospect far more exciting than it was nerve-wracking. I knew that whatever Jake came up with, it was going to be perfect. The only surprise was that “perfect” ended up being even more perfect than I thought it would be.
So, here it is – the cover reveal for Roadhouse Blues. There’ll be more news coming as the summer release gets closer, but if you’re interested in a sneak peek, “Skins”, one the the stories from Roadhouse Blues is currently in Alternative Fucks, a separate collection Go Deeper put together to raise funds for the ACLU. It’s a fierce, brilliant bunch of stories from a fierce, brilliant bunch of writers, so please check it out.
In the meantime, I’m getting back editing Roadhouse. My baby has a beautiful face. The stories have to match.
