Book Cover Art


My publisher put the cover art online at buy.com, so I think it's safe for me to put it on the blog. I'd originally envisioned the Creation of Adam from the Sistine chapel, except in Adam's place, a woman was giving God the "Talk to the Hand" gesture. Independently, Hachette's art department came up with the bride figurine and the terrific conversation bubbles. So they added my Sistine God, and voila! The background may lose the clouds, but this is how more or less how it's going to look. I think they did a fantastic job. (Allen, I swapped the artwork. They did add my middle initial, not to confuse me with the already famous author, Susan Isaacs.

This is awesome.
Is there any conflict with the other Susan Isaacs? Do you not have to put an initial or something? Or is publishing vastly different from acting?

Despite the whole 'judging a book' admonition, I'd buy it just for the cover!

...but I'm shallow like that, I buy wine for the label art :)

Hello,

I found your blog through the Rooneys about a year ago. I just wanted to tell you that I have really enjoyed reading your thoughts on faith, love, yoga, and a certain little bunny. Congratulations on the book! I'm digging the cover art and looking forward to it.
