Historical Romance Writers Dishing the Dirt on Research

28 February 2011

Is that a new cover, why yes it is!

No history today, just a little bit of whoo-hooing over my new cover. This showed up on Valentine's Day in my email. Best V-Day presie ever. Makes me want to say inappropriately lewd things about about how hard my publisher rocks my world.

Love the pose, and adore that garter . . .

The rough draft had a higher neckline on the gown (and no cleavage) and her hair was a bit on the skimpy, Regency side. How they fixed those issues, I have no idea, but I clearly need to sacrifice a goat to the Photoshop gods they've got working in the art department (or maybe take them a nice bottle of Napa Zin this summer when we're all in NY).

Given how high they've set the bar, I can't wait to see what they come up with for book three, LOL! Maybe I'll finally convince them to give me a long-haired hero. *grin*

I may need to have this one made into a necklace or a pin. It deserves some serious flaunting.

Great cover! Funny, I can't recall seeing a lot of garters on covers. Such a great detail! And it's amazing what they can do with photoshop!

Most of the women on covers aren't wearing stockings, let alone garters, LOL! I love the fact that my publisher's art dept totally got how sexy this could be and ran with it.

Fabulous cover! The colors are so brilliant they just grab your eye and the pose is awesome. May your sales rock even higher than your cover!
