It's getting nigh on time to think about cover art again. Once more, I'll be doing the art for my next book. I did Accidental Death's cover, so it's only fitting I do the sequel, Natural Causes. Right?
Word on the street from regular folk is that they all seem to be drawn to AD's cover.
I show them the bookmark with all my covers on it and they invariably point to AD and say 'ooo, that one looks interesting'. So, I need to try and capture that with the next cover. I have the background, I think.
Like these two:
Dying Embers and Fertile Ground are still on sale. Thru Saturday. Snag a copy while you can.)
Anyway, I'll be working on that between now and the middle of next month, so I have something to show when I announce a launch date.
Speaking of covers, I saw what I think it a horrible one this morning. All it showed was a man from mid-chest to upper thighs, wearing a business suit, and in the process of unzipping his fly. I'm like ew. I know it was supposed to be sexy, but it made me think he was getting ready to take a whiz. Nothing romantic about that.
What really grabs your attention about a cover? What turns you off? Do covers really make that much of a difference for your purchasing choices?
