Postmarked Baltimore by Jeff leJeune

Did you design the cover? No

Did your publisher design the cover? Yes

Did you get to give any input about the cover design? Not much; none given taken.

Is there an interesting story behind the cover design? If so, please share the details. The story is about a priest who gets a letter from a former love. The gift-look is twofold: 1) her letter and love is a gift to him; and 2) the priesthood gave him a pretty facade religiously, but inside is where the gift is, and he doesn't open that gift of his manhood until the letter comes fifteen years after he leaves her.

Who is the cover artist? Brandon Bittner

Are you happy with the cover? Yes, but only because anyone that offers an opinion says it makes them want to open it and read it. I guess that's the point.

If not, what would you change and why? I love the utter simplicity of the current cover; that is a part of its charm. I did want, however, the element of an envelope and a stamp to be utilized on the cover.

Tell us what you think is the best part of the cover. It's simplicity and its allure to make someone want to open it.

Is there anything else about your cover that we need to know? Feel free to share.
