I love historical covers, especially when the heroines have on really bright dresses. Tiffany Claire and Sabrina Jeffries come to mind.
I love the dark blue Intrigue covers. They always catch my eye at the store. Maybe it's because they're Intrigues and I love them.
I have a friend who just sold and she HATED the cover art she got. Really hated it. Luckily she has an understanding editor and artist, and they re-did it and made her a stunning cover.
Another friend made her own cover for her book, The Treasure Hunger's Lady. OMG, is it pretty. She just rocked it. I love it.
I have written fifteen books and oddly enough, the only cover I've ever envisioned was for Mississippi Blues. A big, full moon rising over a dark bayou. Very dark blue colors going to black. I can see it so clearly. My friend, Cera DeBois, just got her new cover, and it looks a lot like I've envisioned. It's gorgeous. I keep staring at it.
I want one like that.
For Wild Horses, I can see a herd of mustangs backs as they come into a catch-pen with a couple embracing in the top right corner. The background is kind of red. The title somewhere in the middle. My name there somewhere
I have several friends who are newly published and it's fun to see what kind of covers they're getting.
It'll be even more fun to see mine. Suddenly, covers matter a whole lot more to me!
