There are few days more fun in writer's professional life than receiving a new cover. Meeting readers and fellow writers ranks high up there. And hearing heartfelt responses to our books is top of the list. But seeing a book come to life with artwork that will represent the story is another day we love.
I got the cover for my October Harlequin Superromance, Dances Under the Harvest Moon. This is the third book in my Heartache, TN series for Superromance, but this cover is the first time that the series is announced on the cover. You see, when I began the series, I wasn't sure it would be a series, so Harlequin couldn't very well advertise it. but the population of Heartache grew on me and the town became a new home. I have enjoyed my time there and plan another visit in 2016.
But for now, let me share my new cover!
|My October Superromance cover art|
I've always dreamed of making a big cover collage to hang on the wall of my office one day. Once upon a time I tried laying out all the covers to figure out how to sort them, but with seventy-some book covers, this was a bigger task than I'd imagined!! I need a snapfish collage maybe. But ideally, I'd put the historicals altogether. Or sort them by series, colors or theme. I could put all the iconic images together in one collage and all the clinch covers in another. I could have a collage of male chests!
But for right now, I'm just going to admire this newest cover and the way it helps my idea come to life. I'm also going to eat a slice of graduation cake to help me celebrate! Happy Monday, my friends!
**Do you decorate your home with personal photos? How and where to you arrange them? I just made a snapfish collage of for my cute son's graduation and I had fun choosing twenty three pictures for the project. Chat with me this week and the boards and I have a brand new "Catch the Runaway Brides" t-shirt to offer one random poster!!!***
