    I'm Challenging YOU to find

    I'm now reading The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James. I love the dustjacket cover and this is where my challenge to you comes in. I'd love to have the dustjacket image as a print. If I found it available as a print I'd more than likely buy it.

    Inside the book it says Cover photos: Motel sign @ Tom Hogan/Plain Picture; Clouds @ Menno can der Haven/Shutterstock;
    Cover design by Sarah Oberrender

    I've been searching without success so I'm asking for assistance here. If anyone does find the cover to The Sun Down Motel as a print I might offer a book as thanks.

    It seems to be a combination of images edited to make the cover. You might have to contact the publisher to see if you can get a copy.

    Here's the original motel pic - https://assets.plainpicture.com/publ...54m1138604.jpg

    As I did my post this morning I thought it looked as you describe-A combination of images and not just one image. I was also thinking about emailing the publisher and I did that tonight. I really don't expect a good reply. I guess I could just buy a second copy of the book and only keep the image on the front of the dustjacket.

    I agree, it’s a great cover, and just about sold the book to me just because of it. Just about.

    I think the book is classified as a thriller or suspense. On the back of the dustjacket the book is described as creepy. ~Cap

    The reviews I read were mixed which cooled my jets on it a bit. But the cover and synopsis are enticing enough that if I found it used I’d still snatch it up.

    The publisher sent me a link so I could print the cover. Maybe a real print of the cover doesn't exist. I'll stop at a copy shop I've used before and see how a high quality print from the link they emailed me looks.

    That's cool. I hope the quality of the image is good.

    I once took a Hard Case Crime down to a Kinko’s branch to get a large print of it made, and they refused to do it because of copyright concerns. Hopefully you’ll have more luck than I did.

    That was nice of them. I hope you get a nice print from that.
