Yesterday’s Publishers Weekly included an article on what messages covers are meant to convey to the reader. One of the covers discussed was that of The Temptation of the Night Jasmine. According to the PW article, the subliminal message indicated by the cover of Night Jasmine is that “[t]he heroine, while innocent and beautiful, also has a secret.” So… here’s this week’s question:
When you look at the cover of Night Jasmine, what does it say to you?
There is, quite clearly, no right or wrong answer to this question. (I thought it would be more entertaining for us all to have lots of opinions rather than the same correct answer seventy-three times over, as amusing as that was.) I’m just curious to see what message the cover conveys to you.
One commenter will be chosen at random to receive an advance copy of Night Jasmine— cover and all. Check back here Wednesday for the winner!
