Being a visual person, I am always on the look out for imagery. It might very well be a universal means of procrastination for writers, but I love to amass images that inspire and guide the writing.
But some days, when I want to distract myself, I go hunting for covers. Not just ones I love (that list would be VERY long, I did an entire manifesto in school on universal properties of successful covers) but those I feel embody my writing/stories. And, as I make an effort to collect them, I’m seeing a pattern.
I definitely lean toward dark whimsy.
Do we see a pattern?
Do you have covers you adore? Ones you want to pet, or want to have, or simply want to abduct the designer?
