Hi, Coleen,
For the books published by New York publishers, the art department and the editor put together the cover, with input from me on what I'd like. Though I do get to make suggestions, they final decision is theirs.

For books I publish myself I tell a cover artist what I'd like to see, pick the models, the color scheme etc, and then she puts together a cover, which we tweak until it's what I want.(less)

Anne LaMottte said it best "shitty first drafts." Anything can be fixed. Just write it.(less)

More like short stories about people whose lives intersect than a novel. But this made for a very interesting structure. Past, present and future views of the characters and the world. I enjoyed it.
