La Petit Mort - poem
The Clint Folsom erotic gay murder mystery series.
Habu reports that he enjoyed writing this series. His premise was a no-holds-barred treatment of an unabashedly promiscuous, laid-back, “good-guy” homicide cop with movie-star looks .
(Clint's) love of being ‘topped’ is so ingrained within his being that
each sex act is with an abandon and longing that makes men ‘feel like
kings’. If you weren’t a ‘sub’ before, you would wish to be one by the
end of the book. Once I finished reading it, I rushed to buy the rest of the
Clint Folsom series. Hot Stuff!

Creating an E-book Cover
Stages in the making of a cover
This process may look very primitive to those with Photoshop but I use a really old Photo House package from Corel which I am still learning how to get the most from after using it for some years. It is what I have used to make all our covers.
habu selected the cover image, and this was our discussion about it when it came time to make up the cover:-
Me: One reason the "Choke Hold" cover is not done I confess is that I have no inspiration. The pic is good, clear, and appropriate but does nothing for me I am afraid. Sigh. But I have no idea of an alternative either so I just have to get on with it.
habu: The photo is evocative of the book for me. An ambiguous pose. One guy could be choking the other (congruent with the book) or they could have been working into sex (the position of the hands of the bottom guy—almost a pleasurable hint—also congruent with the book).
Me: I agree the hands are evocatively held.
habu - later: As I already said, from the aspect of the hands, he could either being choked or having sex—which captures the book as well as any other image I found.
