Back Cover: "Born from a conflict of voicing her extreme views on sexuality and consequently thrown out of the convent, Sister Bertrice embarks on a rebellious journey of eroticism. As she writes in her journal of her torrid sexual exploits, the stark reality of past loves lost fills her with despair. Only when she has come to the pit of lonliness can she truely find real love. This is the story of her journey."______ I really had fun inventing this novel cover and it's story, pulling tiny bits and pieces from my imagination, memories of past romance novels, and experiences. Although the original oil painting on canvas is a nude (for future marketability) , I wanted to make it appear more shocking and intriguing to the reader with the bright red censored labels and stark fonts using Paintshop Pro.
