My Double Helix series with its nine related books usually gets the most airtime, but I’ve written other science fiction and fantasy novels. One of my favorites is the award-winning Earth-Sim. It’s a tongue-in-cheek retelling of Earth’s history from its prehistoric roots to present day, told from the perspective of the two college students responsible for managing the planet.
The unusual theme makes cover art difficult. I’ve struggled with the cover of Earth-Sim more than any other cover. This cover is the second iteration. The first one featured a ghostly pair of eyes (with planet Earth for eyeballs) hovering over the water. (I promise, it doesn’t look as freaky as it sounds.) A few years later, I had an artist rework the cover into this one. The tagline helps a great deal since the image, while clearly a science fiction involving a woman, doesn’t actually hint as to the story. What do you think of it?
