Email This Post HomeFictionHelp me pick a cover and HUGE cozy mystery ebook giveaway Amy Vansant March 1, 2017 Fiction, Humor 451 Comments Which cover pose do you prefer? I’m working on the next Kilty novel, part of which takes place around 1833. I’ve been looking for artwork that my cover designer Novak Illustration can tweak to be the new cover – he’ll drop in the background, fix lighting, slap a kilt on the guy…. I just can’t decide between five fairly similar poses. Can you help me decide? Weigh-in with your thoughts below in the comments and you can win one of 10 copies of Kilty as Charged! (or if you already have that, I’ll get you another book or the next Kilty when it is out) First, want a sneak peak how this magic works? Here’s the original photo we used and the finished cover for the first book. Neat, huh? So here are the five – let me know what pose you like best and I’d love to hear what you do and don’t like about any of them. (He will of course have a kilt Photoshopped on to him!) And big giveaway on AXP this week – Cozy Mysteries!

They both look so happy. In 2, she has her arms crossed in front of her which doesn’t feel receptive to me. I like all the other ones, but #1 is my favorite. 13 likes Reply Marsha March 1, 2017 And what is that extra piece of fabric hanging off of her left hip in 3,4 and 5?

They both have smouldering looks and she definitely has the romance cover hair going. #1 she has a weird smile, #2 she looks like she has a stomach ache, #3 she looks bored and in #5 her dress looks like it is falling off, but not in a good way. 0 likes Reply Tamara March 5, 2017 I like number 4 the best because they seem the most connected.

For me who looks at title and a book cover before reviews…I like 4 the most. It is the start of the temptation for each other while still discovering each other.

March 1, 2017 Here’s how I see it 3-5 are almost the same shot. It’s like the camera caught the couple in the beginning of a embrace and shows the progression. Number two I really like the expressions but not her folded hands, now if it could look like his hands were enfolded or on top of hers this would be the best cover ever. Number one I don’t really like her smile in this case. So number two if changes could be made or number three just remove the dangly thing. 0 likes Reply Sharon Guagliardo March 1, 2017 #2 is the one that immediately drew my eye both in the email and on this page, too.

So it wil be cover 1 where at least you cath a glimpse of a smile. 2 likes Reply Diana Morelli March 1, 2017 I like #4 the best. You can feel the their connection in that one the best. 1 likes Reply Emily Endrizzi March 1, 2017 Ok. I really don’t like any of these that much. Number 1 is probably the best though. She’s smiling and that’s a good thing. It looks like she doesn’t hate being there. The dress makes her a bit wide looking at that angle though and that’s my only real issue with number 1, but the dead right arm is kinda weird too. Number 2: looks like she’s cradling a baby or maybe she’s pregnant. Again, the white dress at that angle is making her look wider than she is. Number 3: I see zero connection between the two models. It doesn’t feel real. Feels very posed, which it is of course, but shouldn’t feel that way. Plus, she has a piece of her dress (apparently ripped off in their “passion”) just hanging there strangely for the rest of the pictures. Number 4: it literally looks like she is trying to push away from the guy and he is trying to force her to stay by clawing at her shoulder and back. The woman’s hand on his chest is like she’s trying to get away. And the set of her chin and jaw says she’s really not into him. Her eyes are glued shut in all of the pics like she’s trying to go to her imaginary happy place and away from this guy. I do like the “wind-swept” hair. Number 5: Eyes glued shut again. Face turned away like he has got some bad breath. Lips turned downward like she’s not happy. Her dress is coming off of her, but I can’t imagine why from their pose. There is no passion. Sorry. Maybe I’m reading too much into these pics. Number 1 gets my vote, but would be better if dress color could be changed to something less wedding dress like and maybe photoshop her waist a bit so she doesn’t look so thick waisted. 2 likes Reply Emily Endrizzi March 2, 2017 Showed pics to the fiancé. He picked out number 4 as his favorite. Looking over them again, I really do like that (#4) pose the best (minus the white fanny pack hanging there) from a distance. The wind-swept hair is beautiful. It’s only when I zoom in and look closer that I notice the issues I listed above. From a distance all is well and honestly, I probably was over-thinking it before.

Completely focused on each other. 0 likes Reply Jenny Kelly March 1, 2017 #1 is the best one- I really like the way their heads are and the way their bodies are turned. That being said, there are several things I’d change. I’d have her left arm up, though, and her hand curled just below his ear and slightly around the nape of his neck with the tip of her thumb resting on his jawline, and his hand would be resting on her forearm. I’d also straighten out the wrinkles on the right side of her dress, and center that inverted “V” waistline- it’s off center and needs to be more or less centered with the point of the “V” of her neckline. And fix his cowlick, please? 3 likes Reply Tanya March 1, 2017 Yes! I wanted to mention the arm as well, but had said so much already and thought they might not be willing to reshoot. If able to hide it during the Photomanipulation though and not have it just hang there, that would be fine. 0 likes Reply Della Williamson March 1, 2017 Like No 1 the best. They look calm. Relaxed. And sharing a moment together. Much more romantic. 1 likes Reply Tanya March 1, 2017 I prefer #1. They look happy together and it’s an inviting photo. #2 his face looks drawn around his mouth, her arm shows ripples, and she’s hugging her stomach as though she might be in pain. Numbers 3-5 are awkward. Her dress is falling off and has that odd section in the back just hanging. Plus I’m so tired of seeing covers of men with their pants half down and stomachs exposed. It’s a turn off. Too suggestive. #4 His bicep indents and isn’t flattering. #5 Isn’t flattering of her back. 1 likes Reply Sue March 1, 2017 I like 1 the best 1 likes Reply Margaret March 1, 2017 I like the third photo best. 0 likes Reply Mary Marquez March 1, 2017 I prefer the first one.

I think a kilt would be easier to add into that image as well. I can picture just about any historical background being able to fit into that one. #5 would work similarly, but I don’t like her hand on his face. It looks a little contrived. #1 just puts me to sleep. They look bored. I’m bored. #2 looks like she’s holding an imaginary baby. Not a good pose. #3 seems a little too contrived though I will admit I like it better than either of the first two.

Good luck picking! 0 likes Reply Vikki Watson March 2, 2017 Of the 5 I like 1 the best if you want them to be into each other. 2 thru 5 look very tense with no familiarity. 1 can be photoshopped to add a kilt, rough beard, and hair extensions. And make her dress more in line with the period. 2 would be great if her arms were in a different position. If the period is 1833 the necklace has to go no matter which one you use. 3,4, & 5 are just to stiff.

As a cozy mystery it portrays a lighter version of the other pictures. 0 likes Reply Diane March 2, 2017 I like Number 4 the best. Very passionate. Like the hands placement. Draws me into wanting to read the book. Number 5 works for me also if the story is steamy due to the open more revealing dress back. 0 likes Reply Diana March 2, 2017 #5..the most intimate in my eyes 0 likes Reply Michelle F. March 2, 2017 Number 1. It shows the least amount of skin. 0 likes Reply Christine March 2, 2017 I like both #4 and #5. However, I prefer 5 to 4 as they are both caressing each other. 0 likes Reply Sylvia Reddom March 2, 2017 I would choose number four (4) but with and edit to get that extra piece of fabric off her left hip 😉 based in 1833 it would also reflect well to sue #01 but I still prefer #04 since behind closed doors hey would be most likely to look like that….wishing you best success with which ever one you end up choosing! 0 likes Reply Sylvia Reddom March 2, 2017 Amy can you edit this post — boo boos ensue…;-) 0 likes Reply Sylvia Reddom March 2, 2017 I would choose number four (4) but with an edit to get that extra piece of fabric off her left hip based in 1833 it would also reflect well to use #01 but I still prefer #04 since behind closed doors hey would be most likely to look like that….wishing you best success with which ever one you end up choosing! 0 likes Reply Anne Powell March 2, 2017 I like #1 ~ they seem to be sharing a secret known only by them, the smiles on their faces promises of intimacy to come, their stance open and welcome. 0 likes Reply Athena Kelly March 2, 2017 I like 3 the best. It seems the most passionate to me. 0 likes Reply Kristi L Bilyeu March 2, 2017 I also like either #1 or #4. 0 likes Reply LE March 2, 2017 Definitely #5. The way he is holding her hand and arm is very intimate and loving. His hand on the small of her back is incredibly erotic and exciting. 0 likes Reply kim g March 2, 2017 I really like #2 0 likes Reply Vanessa A. Pagán March 2, 2017 I prefer #4. That just about to kiss look is sexy and his hand on the back of her neck is sensual and portrays possessiveness. 0 likes Reply Tammy Groesser March 2, 2017 I prefer #1 They seem to be more involved with each other. Looking into the others eyes and smiles on their faces. 0 likes Reply Chris March 2, 2017 #1 They seem involved, tender, happy. 0 likes Reply Rachael DeBates March 2, 2017 i prefer #4 its really sensual and shows the fire in each other! 0 likes Reply Cristi Darst March 2, 2017 I like #3 best. I like being able to see more of his front abs chest shoulders and kilt. More sexy. 0 likes Reply Janel Harlan March 2, 2017 I like #5. It seems to have more of a close relationship and romantic feel to it. I like that they face each other. #4 is good too but not as good as #5. 0 likes Reply Tiffany March 2, 2017 #5 is my favorite 😊 0 likes Reply Kelli March 2, 2017 I like #5. You can see the most of the guy. If you can swing a pic where we can see even more of him, even better! 0 likes Reply Teresa March 2, 2017 Either 4 or 5. Love that his hand is under her hair against her neck in 4, but the arm muscles in 5!! Plus less hair means more of her skin shows. 5 is definitely sexiest. 0 likes Reply Jennifer Wadkins March 2, 2017 I really like #4, it seems like the best lovers embrace if that’s what you’re going for. It looks really intimate and delicate. Congrats on the book to come! Have a great day! 0 likes Reply Stacey Woods March 2, 2017 I like #4 or #5. They both seem very intimate. 0 likes Reply Jane Armstrong March 2, 2017 Number 2. Or number 1 as a second choice. 0 likes Reply Becky March 2, 2017 I love #4, I love the touch and the closeness in it. 0 likes Reply Trulee March 2, 2017 Number 1. It shows a loving and ultimately respectful relationship. 0 likes Reply Charlene Fraley March 2, 2017 I like 4. Both of the couples are embracing. 0 likes Reply Barbara Van Walsen March 2, 2017 #2 I believe it is a more reasonable pose than #1. I think showing a little is better than showing a lot (in how much of the gown is on her). The other covers might be ok, but not knowing at what stage of romance you want to show on the cover they could be a little bit too much. 0 likes Reply Johanne March 2, 2017 No 4 and No 1. No. 4 is showing that he posses her in a gentle way and doesn’t want to let go of her. No. 1 is teasing her and wants to kiss her but not rushing it 0 likes Reply Beverly M. March 3, 2017 I like #3. Shows something is about to happen, but not showing too much. 0 likes Reply Kate March 3, 2017 I like #3 best, than #2. 0 likes Reply Deborah Foote March 3, 2017 Number five is my pick 0 likes Reply Sheri Macy March 3, 2017 I like #4.

Very intimate. 0 likes Reply Tricee March 3, 2017 I like #3 because of his hand placement. I do agree to remove the “bag” 0 likes Reply Dee Foster March 3, 2017 I can’t decide between #3 and #4. 0 likes Reply Rhonda Dodds March 3, 2017 Prefer #4, if not then 5. 1,2 and 3 have been so overdone on covers. Just looks like their posed. 4 and 5 looks like a real scene, not a pose. Sorry but the one with her hands clasped hit me as corney first glance. 0 likes Reply Carrie March 3, 2017 I think #5 is great. 0 likes Reply Patty D. Wilderman March 3, 2017 I like #4 the best. It is the faces of the models that makes the picture. They look like they are more in rapture in #4. 0 likes Reply Kayla March 3, 2017 My favorite pic. Is 2. But 3 is nice too. 0 likes Reply Gayle Boyce March 3, 2017 #1. Haven’t seen these before so that one was my first pick. 0 likes Reply Cynthia Blain March 3, 2017 I like book one. It is more “family friendly” for a household where there are children and grandchildren around and seeing book covers of their mother’s or grandmother’s books. All are fine, but number one would be the safest bet. Thank you for the chance. Cynthia B. 0 likes Reply Trista March 3, 2017 I like the first one best. It looks like she is slightly smiling, like she knows he loves her and she is so happy. 0 likes Reply Toi Thomas March 3, 2017 I like one and two. Two would be my choice outright if her arms weren’t crossed, but it’s still good. 0 likes Reply Hank David March 3, 2017 I like number 1 the best – it shows more of a desire for love instead of lust. There is intimacy, anticipation, respect, a desire to give not take, mystery and romance – a lifelong relationship. This picture creates in me a longing to read a loving story of a couple wanting to spend the rest of their lives discovering each other, overcoming whatever comes their way. It is a cover that builds anticipation of a good story. Number 5 screams “take me now” and gives the impression that that is all there will be – a momentary satisfaction of a lust and no on-going respect or desire to build a relationship. This says to me there will be little to the story but the fastest way into bed and the longest way in keeping it a secret – not a well developed plot, little character development and a story that does not create interest. 0 likes Reply Hyacinth Janecyk March 3, 2017 I like #3 the best – 2nd is #5 0 likes Reply Stacy March 3, 2017 I like the number 4 cover. First couple are really staged looking. Her hands look weird. And the other ones don’t show a connection. So i would puck 4 then 5. 0 likes Reply Laura March 3, 2017 I like #5 it seems more of an intimate moment between them both. 0 likes Reply Linda Smith March 4, 2017 In my order of choice, 4, 2, 1, 3 and lastly 5. If you want to show heat, then use 4. If you want to stress the romantic connection between the couple, then use 2. The rest just seem like derivatives to me. 0 likes Reply MICKEY MA March 4, 2017 NUMBER 4 STANDS OUT TO ME AS THEY LOOK AS IF PASSION IS TAKING OVER AND THEY ALMOST CAN’T ENDURE THE PLEASURE. BUT THE SLEAVE OR WHATEVER IS HANGING MUST GO. 0 likes Reply Barb March 4, 2017 Number 1 is the one that stands out the most for me. The look on her face! The rest are okay. 0 likes Reply Jeannelyn Rose R. España March 4, 2017 I like #5 there’s more emotion to it than the others. 0 likes Reply Roxie A Jones March 4, 2017 I like number 4 (four).

She looks like she is giving him a tender touch. That show’s she is emotionally involved with him, not just physically. 0 likes Reply Kerry Hall March 5, 2017 Amy I have looked at the 5 poses and although the two bods are gorgeous, I feel they should have their eyes open looking at each other. No.1 No passion for the female she smiles like its a joke. No 2. She looks offended. No 3. Possible, but the body language is not there. No 4.Looks like he is pulling her to him and she wants to turn her head away.No 5 She is into it, but his body language with holding her wrist says no. So sorry I wouldn’t have any. 0 likes Reply Carol Schmoker March 5, 2017 I like #1.
