What is a picture worth?
A second look? A hands-on exam? Drooling over? LOL
Above and to your right (I hope!) is the cover of A RANCHER’S PRIDE, my May 2011 Harlequin American Romance. Is Sam Robertson drool-worthy or what?
In my humble opinion—which may be just a teeny bit biased—he’s a hottie. A hunk. A honey. Or whatever word you’d like to describe a hero of your dreams. And he’s getting quite a bit of attention from readers. Wonder why? (smile)
A RANCHER’S PRIDE is part of the Men of the West miniseries from Harlequin American Romance. The covers have been fabulous. And if you ask me, American makes a habit of that!
All the May Americans look great, too, with a cowboy, a wedding, and babies times three.
I’ve been lucky from the start with my covers.
Here’s a shot of my very first book, THE SHERIFF’S SON. Isn’t it adorable? And it was so perfect for the story, I got teary-eyed the first time I saw it.
My second book, COURT ME, COWBOY, also had a cover that matched the story perfectly. I’ll give you a hint with this one...the package is very important. (Well, the full package, Gabe included, is special, too.)
And the cover for my previous book, FAMILY MATTERS (October 2010), catches both my hero and heroine at a perfect moment. In addition, though I hadn’t seen the cover before my website was revamped, the flowers just happened to tie in...perfectly!
Are you noticing something they all have in common? LOL I'm very happy with perfection. (smile)
When it comes to the differences--kids, couples, hot heroes--they’re all good, too, as far as I’m concerned.
How about you? When you walk into a bookstore or browse online, what's the first thing that catches your eye? What do you most like to see on a cover?
