What I love today--pretty covers! Two of my covers (Spirited Brides and The Winter Queen) are up for the Historical category at the Cover Cafe contest. (Vote here!)
I do love a gorgeous cover. While a great cover won't make me BUY a book alone, it will make me pick a book up off the shelf and read the back cover. And if that sounds good, I might buy it. I suspect I'm not alone in this, so yay for the power of the good cover! (And boo on the evil of a hideous cover).
My friends Nicola Cornick and Anna Campbell both have lovely covers on their upcoming books:
I would definitely pick up these books even if they weren't my friends! The green and the yellow are a bit unusual for a romance (though I've been seeing a lot more yellow lately), and very eye-catching. And I'm in love with my own December cover for Duchess of Sin:
What are some covers you've seen lately you loved? What catches your eye and makes you pick up the book? What do you hate?
