This is the cover they are actually using:

I also got the cover through for OUT OF CONTROL (out next year) and it’s brilliant! Can’t wait to share.

But even so nothing is quite as hot as the fourth thing in my inbox.. the uncut, copy-edited LILA X-RATED SCENE (over 18s only) that is coming in January. Here’s a little taster to, um, wet your appetites…
