Cover Love (Contest)
Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

UPDATE: The winner is Gayle Lazur!

* * * * *

Often, for me, I come up with a title then go on the hunt for images on photo-stock sites that reflect what I know about a story at that point in time. I send my images with vague editorial comments to my wonderful cover artist, my sister Elle James, and she works her magic.

Sometimes, I have to sit on that lovely cover for a while because, 1) I have to find the story to go along with the image, and 2) I have write said story. Sometimes, I don’t have choices about what comes next because I run up against deadlines.

These five covers are for works in progress I have to push out the door SOON. Arctic Dragon and Bound & Determined are stories that need a refurb/re-edit, the other three are brand new works. Arctic will release very, very soon (in days…). As will With His SEAL Team 6. Bound is up for pre-order!

Still, plenty on my plate to keep me busy through February…



Then there are these luscious covers…

Slow Rider‘s a refurb. So, that one’s fairly easy. The other three are To-Be-Written/conceived. Dagger‘s already up for pre-0rder! I do that to myself to make sure I get my butt in gear and write the dang thing. Then there are the last two… Sequels to other stories. Pleasing Sirs is a sequel to Pleasing Sir. Harvest Moon is the next Beaux Rêve Coven story.

    I love all the covers but Slow Rider and Dagger are my favs. I want to read anything by you with a passion trying to figure out how I missed all those

    Gotta say that my favorite are the ones with the half-naked men! I also like Arctic Dragon’s cover.

    I’m anxious to read Dagger, Slow Rider, and Reaper’s Ride.

    As always, Elle makes some great covers!

    It’s a toss up between Bound and Determined and Slow Rider – both covers are fantastic. I look forward to reading both books (as well as all your other new releases).

    For the cover it is Dagger. I can’t wait for harvest moon even though I don’t care for the cover on that one
