Cover Art

I love book covers – the covers that draw you in, that tell a story at a glance. I think in another life I should have been a graphic artist because I would love, love, love to be able to create a piece of art that matches the written word.

I know that not all covers represent exactly what is inside the book, but I would like to think that I know just by looking what the story is going to be about. I hope that when I get published, my cover will bring me to tears – in a good way.

Some of the covers I love:

This Rebecca York cover is for her novella from Carina Press. Most of the time their covers are fantastic. I love the energy of this one and the hot guy doesn’t hurt either.

The colours really POP in this cover for Janni Nell’s mystery series! You can tell the book is going to be fun by the cover. The little heart/butterfly wing emblem at the bottom is carried through the series. It is another Carina Press cover.

I love the colour red and this is just so rich and luxurious I want to touch the cover. The book is by Kady Cross and I am going to read it just because of the cover-plus I love steampunk :)

Bethany House has great covers, they are known for it. I know it is a little out of the realm of this blog, but I bought this book just from the cover and I loved it. Cathy Marie Hake is one of my favourite authors. The cover is fun and quirky, just like the book.

Just some of my faves!

Good choices! My copy of The Girl in the Steel Corset is still in my TBR pile, LOL.
