First…thank you for your help with the Pineapple Lies cover!
Thank you to everyone for help with the Pineapple Lies cover last week — all the comments were HUGELY helpful! I thought the new skull cover would be a slam dunk, and the cozier people said, “Slow your roll, there, Missy.” I think I’ve found a solution…I’ll have an update for you soon!
Time for the Kilty Cover!
Now I need your help with the Kilty as Charged cover! I used a naked man torso on the current version as an experiment, and I’ve decided I just can’t do it. I don’t write steamy romances, so it also feels a little like a “bait and switch.” I need a cover that better conveys that this is a thriller-suspense, with a healthy dose of humor, romance and time-travel thrown in. It’s a lot to ask. 🙂
Below are two variations of my cover idea, both featuring the opening scene where Catriona finds Broch naked at the Hollywood studio after he’s thrown through time.
In the first, he’s a little stiff maybe – but he fits perfectly with the naughty bits hidden by her leg.
The second is a ROUGH mockup using a more sprawled body (we’d still have to make it naked, so please ignore the pants and shoes!!)
MY THREE QUESTIONS FOR YOU:
- Do you like the new cover? And if so, do you prefer him stiff or sprawled? (oh my, that didn’t sound right…)
- Would it inspire you to read it?
- Do you think I should keep the tagline: Romance. Suspense. Haggis. ? I like it because it implies there’s humor, but I don’t know that everyone knows what haggis is, and I suppose the title implies that… but it also lets you know there is romance…
- I thought the green shirt is eye catching and helps the eye see her long hair, but two people have already said they find the green distracting…Yes or no on green shirt?
Please comment below to let me know or feel free to email me too at firstname.lastname@example.org. And as usual, thank you for all your invaluable input!
