Decisions, decisions… (Contest)
Thursday, October 11th, 2012

I’m talking about covers, of course. My publisher will likely be VERY UNHAPPY to see these draft covers on my website, but I can’t make up my mind. Or rather, I have, but I’m getting stubborn about what I want. I don’t like most romance covers. Even my own. And maybe you can guess which one I love when I say it POPS and is completely memorable. But I don’t have a typical romance reader’s taste.

So, I’m bringing the covers to you. What you choose may not be the final, but it will help me tell my publisher what readers love. So vote. You can make two choices. And if you leave me a comment telling me why you loved your choices, you will be entered to win a $10 Amazon gift certificate. You only have today!! I will close the poll this evening so I can answer my editor. Thanks for your help, everyone. At the bottom of the page, I’ve posted my version of the blurb for this book so you can see what it is all about.

Which two covers do you like best?

  • #6 (30%, 37 Votes)
  • #3 (27%, 33 Votes)
  • #1 (20%, 24 Votes)
  • #2 (12%, 15 Votes)

A bloody handprint on the inside of a mirror forces a disgraced ex-cop to seek help from two former lovers, her ex-partner and a powerful sorcerer, to stop a murderous demon


Private Investigator Caitlyn O’Connell lost it all—her plum job as a detective for the Memphis PD, her partner and lover, and her own self-respect—to booze in an attempt to drown out the voices in her head. When her ex-partner drags her to a murder scene where she’s his only real lead, she knows it’s time to face her greatest fears and harness the inherited gifts she’s always rejected. That she’ll have a chance to prove she had damn good reasons for shutting Sam out of her life is just icing on the cake.

The last thing Sam Pierce wants is to revisit his painful relationship with Cait, but she’s the only lead he has. Sam doggedly follows Cait into a dark world filled with magick and unholy terrors as they search for killer wraiths and the demon who commands them.

[If it helps, this isn’t an erotic book. Sexy, yes, but slanted more toward a paranormal romantic suspense!)]

    I like the red it is eye catching; the cover is suspenseful.

    I like Number 2 or Number 6. I love number 2, but I think Number 6 suits the story better. (And Remember, I’ve read some of it before. *g* Can’t wait to read the whole thing.

    I like number 6 then three. These two show the most intrigue and mystery to me.

    I voted for 1 and 3. I really liked the glass that is shattered in both of them. It seems to fit the title of the book better. #3 is my favorite one of them.

    I voted for #6. It has more of that paranormal feel for me. I couldn’t even look at the others after it. It grabbed my attention and that would make me check out the book.

    My mind is torn between 6 and 3.
    I am going towards 6 more than 3 but those are my top picks. I like the shartterd glass look on 3….But the graveyard tops it..
    Thanks for sharing. 😉

    1 is my favorite. But I like 3 too. Im drawn to the break in the glass in one. But the colors and the idea of the shards in 3 is great too.

    I like #3, and #6. Number 3 really makes the title visually dramatic, and ties it together, but number 6 is my most favorite, it just screams eerie, with a huge dose of this is going to be intense, with a bit of creepy, thrown in for good measure.
