I’ve made no bones (hurr) about loving the artwork that graces my first novel (oh, how I love the work CBM does!). One thing I especially appreciate about it (glance to the right to see it, or click here) is how it stands out from so many romance novel covers. Not that there’s anything wrong with what we’re used to seeing on romance novels–I’m pretty fond of them, truthfully–but from a marketing point of view, it’s pretty fantastic to have something stand out of the crowd.
My publisher, Interlude Press, is sort of making themselves known for their beautiful covers, and since it’s Trade Day Tuesday, I wanted to share some of the other amazing books (both the inside and outside) they’ve published.
Look at this beauty, for example, artwork also done by the fab CBM. Now, if that isn’t an eye-catching image that immediately makes you want to touch the cover, I don’t know what is. (And I’m entranced by those feet. I can’t help it, it’s a thing. Handsome feet and hands are a thing with me. Don’t make this weird.)
It’s warm, it’s evocative, and it makes me already wonder what this little summertime trip is all about (don’t you just know this is a summer vacation book? And with this ongoing winter, I’m really ready to be warm and have a warm-weather read in my hands). This book will be released this summer, so stay tuned!
I’m not typically attracted to male gingers, Ron Weasley aside. (Come on. Weasley is my King.) It all goes back to be horribly rejected by a ginger years ago, so don’t take this personally. I say all of that because the next cover makes me want to denounce my anti-Ginger ways.
I literally bit my lip and made a low noise, like, “hello fellas! What’s all this about?” Right away you know this is going to be a naughty romp, and I’m all in. ALL IN, FOLKS. (You can be, too!) What is Mr. Leather sleeve doing to Sir Freckle Moan?* I don’t know, but I want to find out.
* not their actual names. I assume.
Even more beauties (and links to get them in YOUR hands) are under the cut:
