Of course, the old cover was only published on this blog, so I doubt it has entered the global human consciousness.
Is it too blue? Is it dreamy and fun and gorgeous? Will anyone post it on a Photoshop disaster site because you can see where I changed their hair color to match the story?
Mostly my concern is that it’s too blue. I wanted it to stand out from the Quick Study cover which was very pink. (Whenever I say “pink” with emphasis I remember the first Christopher Reeve Superman movie when he lets Lois know what color her underwear is. Pink.)
Do they look like cadavers? That’s really not the message I’m going for. Necro might be somebody’s niche but I’m not going there. This is Bev the preschool teacher and Liam the ex-Olympic swimming alpha fashion VP discovering they’re made for each other.
Yes, Love Handles is set in the fashion industry, yet my cover models are naked. Let us savor the irony. Limited stock photos, you know? Plus there are a few scenes where they remove their clothing. I’m not sure they ever smile like these stock photo beauties, but if I myself ever got Liam in my arms, I’d have a look a lot like that. Nom nom nom.
