It’s daring, very daring!
Not the content of the cover, but the style of the cover. Some people think that readers connect more readily to photographic images than to drawings and paintings. Hence if you work for a magazine or book publisher, you’re often told to prefer a photograph to a line drawing or painting, even if the latter is absolutely a better piece of art.
But for the latest Family at the Holidays story, the Boss flew in the face of conventional wisdom. Check out this exotic cover by Sofia Shimanovskaia:
Is that or is that not awesome? We love the wild contrast of the sexy maroon/red and the bright blue-green, with the model’s eye color picked up in the font. So simple, but so…wild.
Bliss wants to draw a fake tatt like that up her between her eyebrows. But Aunt Tillie isn’t having any of it. (She’s so strict!)
We were all a little worried that the cover lines — the title and subtitle and author’s byline — wouldn’t stand out enough in the Amazon environment. But when you call up its page, it looks just fine.
We like this story: it’s an LGBT tale, only the second that Camptown Races has produced. And it’s very erotic. In a nice way.
Check it out!
And while you’re at it, don’t miss Daniela and James’s story, which just went live a day or two ago! Very sweet couple! 😉
Yours for happy Thanksgiving travel reading!
Joy and Bliss
