So What Do YOU Think? by Linda Kozar

Announcing . . .my new cover? That's right. Alligator Pear has a new cover.

Though I loved my previous one, it wasn't showing up well in thumbnail version--a crucial concern. Some readers will never open a book if the cover doesn't invite them to.

So what do you think?

Everyone who comments on this post will be entered to win an ebook version of Alligator Pear!

Young artist Fleur D'Hemecourt is as breathtaking as the surreal beauties she paints and as decoriously aloof. Haunted by the childhood loss of her parents, she returns to Post WWII New Orleans and the foreboding mansion on St. Charles Avenue to claim her estate, with the intention of continuing her art studies in Europe. Her plans soon change when she and Louis Russo, a handsome young attorney meet.  But a series of accidents and near misses convince her that someone is after her life. Dark secrets soon begin to surface--painting shadowy images of family, friends and the man she dares to love.

  1. I think this cover intrigues me. Really great!!!

  2. Thanks Nancy. What sets it apart from the other cover? Do you think covers with characters sell better or attract readers more than landscapes or editorial designs? This whole thing fascinates me.

  3. I don't know what the first cover looked like, but this one is absolutely fantastic, Linda. And the title is really intriguing as well. I don't know how I missed this book by you, but I would surely like to read it. Hope to see you on Saturday!

  4. Great cover, Linda! I love the hat and that velvet green. Sounds like a good read
    during a fascinating time in our Country. Congratulations! :)

    1. Diane--Thanks, the green lady is mysterious and lovely--a great combination for a character.

  5. Lisa, thanks so much! Maybe you'll win a copy--you are officially entered in the contest now, along with Nancy Kimball and Diane Dean White:)

  6. Oh, Linda can I enter, too? I love the cover and I'm wondering what the title means? Is it about an alligator that likes to eat pears?

    "Murder in Marietta"

  7. Of course you can, Deborah! Haha! Not exactly. New Orleanians call avocados "alligator pears" and I used the imagery of the rough/tough outer surface and the soft flesh of the avocado fruit as an analogy to my character.

  8. Gorgeous! Love it! The color is great and it's both intriguing and alluring. Great cover art.
