Covers and contest reminder.

You haven't missed Jessica E. Subject's contest, right? Today (January 19th) is the last day to enter. All you have to do is comment on her interview here on the blog.

On a completely different note, I have finally decided on the cover for the Embarkment 2577 collection. I have to admit I don't really have a blue alien with red eyes in the book, but it's the symbolism that counts, right?

There was this one image I really, really, really wanted, showing a girl sitting alone in bed looking out through a spaceship window. Unfortunately, I can't figure out who owns it. It's all over the place on wallpaper sites and I've emailed them all. They either don't answer at all, or don't know.

Have I been tempted to use it anyway? Oh, you have no idea, LOL! My fingers are still itching to just do it and hope for the best...

The alien is cool, but the girl sitting there in the bed says so much more about the story. Unfortunately, I'm not talented enough to imitate it. I could probably come up with something on the same theme, but that would take more time than I have at the moment.

If you have any ideas on how to chase the below image down, let me know.
