When I was trying to figure out the cover art for When Cthulhu Met Atlach-Nacha, my options basically boiled down to a concept I'd given my graphic designer, Wendy McBride, and a piece I found on Deviant Art by an artist named Max Rambaldi from Padua, Italy. I contacted Max, and she was super quick to respond and very cool. I ended up loving the original piece that Wendy made for me, and it fits the story better, but you should check out the art I almost got for the cover:
Somebody needs to use this! If I write another Cthulhu mythos romance before someone else snags it, I'm definitely going to buy exclusive book cover rights from Max.
Her other work is fantastic, too. It's got so much personality and style. Check it out on her Facebook page.
