My editor emailed me today and said it was time to start working on the book cover (insert a 'this is really happening <squee> here). She said the art department would contact me shortly, and there was a character description form for me to fill out, so they could start to formulate the 'look' for my characters. She also told me to send over a file of images, depicting style and appearance for the main characters.
This means I have been given permission, nay, ordered to trawl the internet for pictures of handsome men wearing suits. <sigh>
