Book Cover Help Needed

Thursday, May 17, 2012

I need your help! Post links to images of your FAVORITE HISTORICAL ROMANCE NOVEL COVERS—Christian or general-market. I need to turn in my marketing/cover design sheet for Follow the Heart on Friday and they suggest sending examples of covers to get a feel for the type of image for my book.

Book 1 of The Great Exhibition Series
ISBN: (to come)
B&H Publishing Group
May 2013

Kate and Christopher Dearing’s lives are turned upside down when their father loses everything in a railroad land speculation and they’re shipped off to their mother’s brother, Sir Anthony, in England with one edict: marry money. At twenty-seven years old, Kate is no debutante . . . and has the stigma of being passed over by eligible men many times—and that was before she had no dowry. Christopher would like nothing better than to make his own way in the world; and with a law degree and expertise in the burgeoning railroad industry, he was primed to do just that—in America.

Though their uncle tries to ensure Kate and Christopher find matrimonial prospects only among the highest echelon of British society, their attentions stray elsewhere… to a gardener and a governess.

While Christopher has a chance to make his own way in life—which would enable him to lay his affections where he chooses—he cannot let the burden of their family’s financial situation crush his sister. Trying to push her feelings for the handsome—but not wealthy—gardener aside, Kate’s prospects brighten when a friend of Sir Anthony’s, a wealthy viscount, shows favorable interest in her. But will marrying for the financial security of her family be the right thing to do, when her heart is telling her she’s making a mistake?

Mandates . . . money . . . matrimony. Who will follow the heart?

    My favorite cover this past year was Tamera Alexander’s “A Lasting Impression.”

    Have fun!

    I don’t have any to add. My faves have already been posted. The cover for Sweeter Than Birdsong is my current fave.

    I think the ones I like best are close to the Love Inspired Historical covers. I love to see a full length man and woman in a garden, ball room, etc., on the cover. Sarah Sundin’s Wings of Glory series have beautiful covers.

    fun! siri mitchell always has the best covers :) i also like this one for while we’re far apart by lynn austin becaue i dont like seeing character’s faces on book covers http://ebooks-imgs.connect.com/product/400/000/000/000/000/279/456/400000000000000279456_s3.png

    i love the cover for a constant heart by mitchell because mitchell’s ongoing thesis is fashion in time periods and this accentuates its importance in her elizabethan tale:

    as said, i am not big on faces on covers, but I LOVE this book and I LOVE the model they have and I LOVE the cover: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/5118N-otNoL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA280_SH20_AA258_PIkin4,BottomRight,-45,22_AA280_SH20_OU01_.jpg
