HeartMate Reissue Cover Reprise....

Here they are, side by side. Again, one of the first things my editor said was "send pictures of cat." I still smile at that, and the first time I saw the original art was approximately 5 years ago, just before the RWA convention. So I'm sentimental about the cover, but frankly, I like the new one better -- EXCEPT THERE IS NO TATTOO MENTIONED IN THE BOOK.

As I started to write this, I got an idea of a scene to explain the tattoo -- as it is fading from T'Ash's arm many years before the start of the story...BUT, I think I've figured out that it could actually HAVE been in the story, but not noticed by anyone...LOL.

Thanks for indulging me.

May your muse indulge you today.

It seems to me that the tattoo would belong to the members of the triad or a gang and T'Ash sounds like a lone wolf. There is not enough personal detail of the man on the cover to identify him as T'Ash; he would not be like a herd member marking himself like cattle even if it was fashionable!!
If the tattoo is on the triad there is not much need of explanation it would be expected.

Yes, if we were talking gangs, the triad would be the ones -- who had glisten coated teeth. I'm pretty sure they intend this to be T'Ash on the cover. And the triad was mostly teens.

Thanks for the help!
