Things I like about my…

Things I like about my new cover for The Stars Change:

- there is no pink or red on it anywhere
- there are no saris
- there are no women with truncated limbs
- there are no women posing, frozen, for the viewer's gaze
- there are no half-naked (or fully naked) women

- there is a sense of motion
- there is a large city landscape

Maybe all of this means men will actually pick up my book, even with a woman's name on the cover.

Someday I really have to finish writing up my Red Sari Project. http://www.mamohanraj.com/redsari/red-sari-an-analysis-of-s-asian-and-diaspora-book-covers.html
