Thank you to The Book Queen for Lusting for Covers meme
So I was looking at my January new release database and freaking out that more than half the books aren’t showing covers… which means a LOT more work for me. Grr-argh Anyway, I was looking at the covers that did show for next month and I realized that covers with red, blues and purples jump out at me. So basically if it has a jewel tone color I’m all over it. Tattoos and pretty people don’t hurt either to lure my attention based on cover alone. Unnatural poses on covers just make me giggle and think of fantasy author Jim C. Hines trying to duplicate them. He’s actually taken his cover posing entertainment and education to the next level- Fundraising for a good cause! Click HERE for more information.
This cover doesn’t have an awkward pose or a yummy clinch or a hot guy. It actually doesn’t have a person at all. But it still grabbed my attention and I had to read the synopsis. Then I was hooked.
A Long, Long Sleep will be out with this cover on it’s paperback release January 22nd. I love the red digitized rose imposed against a plain black background. It’s simple and eye catching. I want to get this book! Take a look at the synopsis and tell me what you think. Or tell me what you think of the cover.
