Emily's Journey Home: Cover Reveal!

Yes, I chickened out of the full Lady Godiva, but I think the cover came out pretty well anyway, and at least will end EXPLORATIONS in a way consistent with the later covers, as tasteful as they are cryptic.

UPDATE: Buy Emily's Journey Home here!

And here's a cryptic little snippet to show where we're headed as things wind up:
We sat on the couch in the living-room of the suite and kept our eyes glued to the huge monitor. 
"In the old days, this event took place serially, and occupied four hours," Joe said. "They used to hold it simultaneously with the other two contests. But thanks to the miracles of modern technology, the five judges can be absolutely assured that they have missed nothing of the five performances by the time they tally their scores. At the same time, because no scores are tallied until all the competitors have finished, we can be assured that the ill effects of serial comparison--you know, where going first is like a death-sentence for skaters and gymnasts--will have very little impact on the outcome." 
"And here they come," said Frank. 
Five couples emerged from the little field house in the center of the green. The men wore bathrobes, each of a different color: black, brown, yellow, green, and blue. The women were naked but for a band around their right wrists and left ankles of the same color as their partners' robes. The men, too, I saw now, had similar bands.
And the blurb! The book should be available by the end of the week!
The time has come at last for everyone to show his or her cards in the BDSM pseudo-religious community of Prophettown. The lascivious festival-play gets underway, with fantasy-Emily playing the Whore of the Nations, and being chastised and enjoyed accordingly. In the Victorian notebooks of her great-great-grandmother, Victorian Emily has an erotic encounter with the future Edward VII that will ennoble her even as it utterly degrades her in the dungeons of Windsor Castle.   
What will fantasy-Emily do about the vast wealth offered her by the Prophet? Will she help the women of Prophettown gain more control over their play life? Will her journey home be a happy one?  
This book of Explorations contains fiction elaborating the following sorts of fantasy that you may wish to avoid: Mf, MMMMf (no sex among M's), FFFf, ffff, anal, spanking, exhibitionist sex athletics. It's intended for over-18 audiences who, like me, are interested in exploring the lines between pleasure and pain, dominance and submission, and fantasy and reality. All characters depicted are consenting adults.
