I love getting shiny new book covers in my inbox! This is the latest one, from my upcoming Siren release, “Doggy Tales – Doggy Tales 1.” It’s a compilation of several stories, some of which were pre-released, but those were revised and extensively expanded, in addition to two new stories.
I know they’re not the Lyall brothers (yes, yes, I’m working on them!) but I hope these scorching hot shape-shifter men will do it for you. LOL
I have been so lucky that I get amazing covers full of win with a side of total awesomsauce. LOL
As a reader, I love book covers that draw me in and give me an immediate feel for a story, set a specific mood. I’m not a huge stickler for a hero or heroine (or plural) has to look exactly like they’re written, but they should be a reasonable facsimile thereof. LOL I don’t even mind “headless” heroes and heroines, because I know how difficult it is sometimes to match someone up exactly.
What I don’t like are those CGI-avatar cartooney looking covers. I’d rather see a generic hero that’s a real guy than one of those things that looks like it belongs in a video game. I just…I don’t know, I can’t take a book serious that looks like that. LOL That’s just me. I’m sure there are some people out there who will disagree, and that’s fine.
So what do you like in a book cover? What don’t you like? What draws you in or repels you about a book cover? I know we’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but let’s be honest, we all do it.
