Could the past she kept hidden…
Renew an unexpected love?
After her adult son survives a plane crash, Nicole St. John believes the one person who can help him heal is his pilot father—who doesn’t know the twenty-four-year-old exists. Now Adam Hawk will do anything to support his son, even spend time with the woman who kept him a secret. But as old feelings resurface, can Adam convince Nicole she’s the final piece in their new family?
Back cover copy from my release coming in September. In February I did a post about selling to Love Inspired. A dream come true. There are many aspects involved and seeing your cover for the first time is one of them. They ask you to describe three scenes and describe the characters. It helps them develop a great cover for the book as it relates to the story. Even with my Indie books, I always hired somebody because I have no vision in that area. I’ve been blessed with some great covers because of the people I hired.
So, when I sent in the visuals and the scene descriptions I really had no idea what they would do with it. But when I did receive the cover through the email, I was thrilled. And that back copy. It summed up the story perfectly!
Before I get to the cover, I wanted to talk about how important covers are to me. I pick up books that have beautiful covers. The cover sets the scene for me, and I’m sure it does for you as well. If it’s a scenery only cover I automatically think family saga type of novel. Of course a couple will lead me down the romance path. Covers with weapons are not my normal forte. I do like a good mystery, but a knife dripping blood will probably not be in the cart when I check out.
A lot of covers now are using more anime or cartoon images and font. I usually have to read the back blurb, because they are in all different genres it seems. They are not an auto turn-off for me, though.
Love Inspired has an amazing handle on what type of stories their readers like. And they know how to create covers that will draw their readers to the book. I know for me, even though we know the stories are family oriented, and God centered, I still love the diversity of the covers. Kids, pets, a woman, a man, a woman with children, or a man with a child, or children. And the scenery! They do a great job on giving the reader a visual of the story setting. Whether it is set in Alaska, on a ranch, or the mountains, you know what you’re buying when you pick up the book.
So, in taking in the above blurb, tell me how you think they did with my beautiful cover!
So, I’d love to hear from you what you think. Not only about my cover, but about covers in general. Are there auto buys for you? Auto put backs? It’s also available for pre-order here.
