I'm baffled. I submitted my cover request for Mind F*cked and received word from my editor that she'd like the cover requests for the other four books in the Faerily Imperfect series. The general thought being that all covers should look similar in appearance for the series. It's a grand idea.
The problem? The other four books are still simply a paragraph of proposal. I've no idea what the characters look like or the major plot point in any of the books. I know the faery curse each has and how it will be involved in their romantic plots, but the driving factors are still unknown. I usually don't know until the book is being written.
So short of writing four books in the next week (not possible, in case you doubted), I'll be filling out a two page cover request form purely on guesswork. Hm. Descriptions, tension points, examples, blurbs, items of importance... will all be randomly pulled from the air. I did not foresee this complication with submitting a proposal.
And what of the two books which fall in the male/female realm or the one which will be a menage? Should the covers have a slight variation on the over-riding theme so the reader can distinguish? I think I shall discuss this with the Powers That Be.
Note to self: "Mia, you have outdone yourself this time. Stock up on coffee."
