Today, over on Facebook, at the Samhain Publishing Page, they’re doing Cover Wars.
My cover, Before His Eyes, is one of the two covers up on Cover Wars, against the beautiful cover His Obsession Next Door, by Catherine Fox.
Ms. Fox’s cover for her book really is pretty. Brightly colored, very romantic pose. I really like it. Heck, I would pick it up in the store and check it out. And it’s a “My Sister’s Off Limits” story, which is a trope that I love. (Are you seeing a theme here? I will probably be picking this one up myself…)
When I saw my competition for Cover Wars, I was all “Well, shoot, I lost…” and I didn’t even bother looking again.
Until my editor emailed me, and told me I needed to look at the voting.
Before His Eyes is doing amazing in the voting!
I can’t believe it!
Not that I don’t love my cover art, because I do. This was just my thinking–my cover is SO DIFFERENT from everything that’s available, I didn’t expect such a strong response for it.
One of the things I love about Before His Eyes is the different cover, and the fact that it’s a little more unusual for a romance cover. However, I have been awed and humbled at the response my book cover has gotten.
Many of the comments have mentioned the “mysterious” nature of it, how their eyes are drawn to it, and the curiosity the cover raises.
Long story short, I am humbled and awed.
