Janabai Shepherd book cover

The  cover for Book Two, Janabai Shepherd, has arrived from Streetlight Graphics.  My editor, Cate Hogan, thinks it is too young, too soft, and will not sell books.  Nor, she adds will it attract older readers.  CJ agrees.  I’m not so sure.  Janabai is the story of a girl growing up on a communal farm after the apocalypse.  She is only twenty-one at the end of the book.   In that regard, the cover is accurate, and very much in character.
