The goal was to get across the modern fairy tale and romance aspects of the story. Hopefully, those goals were accomplished. To be honest, I had the hardest time finding an image of an African-American mermaid, since my main character is an African-American jazz singer from the 40's who's eventually...wait, I don't want to give spoilers away.
But stock photo sites just didn't have what I needed, so I had to put my average photoshop skills to work on this one.
I'd love to hear what you think of the new cover. And if you haven't read the story, it's a bite-size tale that you can finish in 1-2 hours (only 5 chapters long). Enjoy!
