A mock cover for the book I’m writing. This isn’t the final but I’m enjoying the process.
“Digging through flesh for white wolf fur,
Only Little Redd is here.
Her bones are lead in this new vessel. The Huntsman’s footsteps are near and he pictures his axe slicing through the girls chest like hot butter. She cradles and claws but the wolves can’t answer. They have forgotten her.
The beetles and worms wriggle and scurry over her frail body. Pink scratches rise like ribbons. Her thoughts hurry into despair as she senses the man’s presence linger only steps away. She can smell his sweat and taste his lust.
He grips the handle of the axe which is fixed to a leather strap on a belt.
A deep breath. He closes his eyes for a second.
He looks at her. A little beast in a girls body. A nightdress to mask the demon that slumbers.
“Stupid ape.” She hisses.
“Your animal skins and metals do not make you a God. “
