Though....  I wonder if I SHOULD submit my cover.  As they say, "Any press is good press."

That would be funny, given so many authors screaming "copyright infringement!" if they appear on the site.

 

FYI, people, a review is not a copyright violation. :)

I think I have to go spend twenty minutes looking through the covers of my National Geographic collection to recover from this.

Two of my covers made their main page. I had much fun reading the comments. I think I even sold a book or two in those days :-D
