The cover model is definitely not me, but I'm flattered you considered that. I wish I looked that good! :) My book covers are designed by the talented art directors at Medallion. I definitely have input, but they get the final say. For this particular cover, we went around a couple of times before they came up with this image of Nicaule (King Solomon's Egyptian wife, whose voice is prominent in the book). What do you think of it? I'd love to know.(less)
