Fun fact: for years, I had always wanted to use this concept for a book cover. What I had in mind was a single figure of a woman with her back to the camera. Everything was in black and white, except for the woman’s red dress.
I’ve actually done a cover for this story before. It was for the original, novella-length version of Playing Autumn, which was included in a limited-run romance anthology, and published as a limited-run print edition.
The new version is a novel, and the romance is a bit steamier. So Mina asked me to do a “spicier” cover.
