“What do you love about your Simon Pulse Ro-Com covers?”

I heard that this is the question of the month for the Simon Pulse Romantic Comedies blog, which sounds great to me. The only other thing I can think about right now would be the obnoxious heatwave we're having in San Diego. 102 today, and I live 15 min from the beach!! Anyway, what do I love most about my covers? There are lots of things. I think my favorite part about every single one of my book covers is seeing them for the first time. I love to see what the artists come up with and it's almost always consistent with my vision. I have a bunch of covers framed in my office, and I love seeing the foreign titles for some of my adult books. My agent, Elise Capron, always tells me I look like Natalie on the Love Off-Limits cover. I wish. If I had Natalie's figure I would give away my elliptical machine tomorrow. I love the colors Amy Saidens came up with for Love Off-Limits also. There is something about fall colors that are so alluring and comforting. The cover of Party Games captures so many elements from the book. Sara's blue necklace is small but significant in the story and I was so pleased to see the necklace included on the cover. Not to mention that Ian looks pretty cute and is someone I would've had a crush on. So I can't wait to see what is in store for the next book! I'll let everyone know as soon as I find out.

I like how each cover contains tiny details from the book and totally captures the way you'd picture these characters interacting and looking in your mind. Like in The Boys Next Door, at first glance it isn't too noticeable, but I LOVE how you can tell Sean and Adam apart (Sean with the shades and Adam with the skull necklace). Same with Puppy Love, and distinguishing between each dog. I also love the colors used, and the cute taglines:)

I love your cover too and it's fun to hear ppl think you look like the main character. I have ppl asking me if I modeled for my The Secret Life of a Teenage Siren cover and like you, I say, "I wish I looked like that!" :)
