You Can Definitely Judge a Book

And Speaking of Covers…

I have been very impressed with recent NAL covers, both for our own clients, and also for other authors. For instance, check out the beautiful Amanda McCabe cover for LADY MIDNIGHT:

Not the best resolution, but I love this cover!

Or that of Cheryl Sawyer’s SIREN (repped by my agent buddy Kristin Nelson)

This is one of the most beautiful covers I've seen in a while.


I also particularly like these two right here—so much so, that I’m tempted to purchase the book, aren’t you? In fact, I'm sure that I will!



A gorgeous NAL cover that makes me want to buy this book!


Another lovely cover from NAL

In general, I feel that hats should go off to the Penguin Putnam art department, who for some time have been coming up with terrific covers for a number of our clients. Next, I will share some of the Berkley covers they’ve done for us that I think are beautiful. But these few covers are real evidence--at least I think--that I will most likely love my cover for PARALLEL ATTRACTION! If I had a better mastery of posting pics, I'd have a lot more to share.

I agree-- I loved Lydia's cover, and it really stood out at my local Wal-Mart because it was so different from most romance covers. And the Viehl cover keeps calling my name every time I see it. NAL is turning out some really great (and unusual) covers!

Ellen,
Since posting this last night I've ordered both Lynn's and Lydia's books. The allure of a GREAT cover is quite powerful. It's one reason agents work so closely with the publisher to be sure that a great cover results.

Lydia's next cover (on her site, I noticed last night) is perhaps even lovelier. Good packaging!

Lydia's book is as good as the cover. You'll love it.
