Cover Art: Maplecroft has another cover art reveal, this time for a book I already knew I wanted to read it (Cherie Priest tackling Lizzie Borden?  I'm sold).

This cover comes from Blake Morrow, an artist I am not familiar with by name.  It reminds me of the Larry Rostant photo realistic covers of Mary Robinette Kowal's novels, but with the bloody axe and the scratchiness of the design, there is a creepiness to this cover.  I'd like to see more of Morrow's work.

I don't know that I fully love the cover yet, but I do like it.  But really, the main reason that I'm digging on this is the author's name on the cover.  Cherie Priest sells me, the art in this case is a bonus.
