Imagine my delight on receiving an e-mail from a publisher in Australia, telling me that they would like to use this painting for a book cover and asking for a high resolution photo.

Once before they used one of my paintings, so I thought that this was great.   I will be getting famous one day!  Or something.

Well, weeks passed and I heard nothing and eventually e-mailed them to find out what had happened.  Apparently the Graffic designer had done the cover and when they showed it to the author, he then showed it to several other people. Eventually deciding that “It would not work with the mix”
So there goes a couple of bob and my fame and fortune.
Remember:  You can’t judge a book by it’s cover – OR, You can’t cover a book until it is judged.
