Or ‘Squeeee!!!’ EIther expression works. Anyway, I just got the jpg of my new book cover with Ravenous Romance and am VERY happy with it. To quote my own sell sheet:
Got sex and romance on the brain? So does Cassandra Devon. She also has hard-boiled private eyes, dashing pirates, jet-setting super spies and other sexy rogues entertaining her in her surprisingly explicit subconscious. All these erotic daydreams make it hard to stay focused on Cassandra’s current dilemma: namely, rebuffing the advances of Connor, a wild Irish rascal who wants to play the starring role in her fantasies. Cassandra is only interested in getting together with Raphael, the tall, dark and handsome man of her dreams. May the best romance hero win!
Walter Mitty meets Erica Jong in this wickedly funny and sexy hot comedy-romance from the author of Succubusted.
My original cover concept was this:
A play on a stereotypical historical romance cover from the ’80s: our heroine, Cassandra (lots of long, wavy dark brown hair) bent over backwards in the steely armed embrace of a tall, dark auburn-haired, muscular man kissing her neck. He’s either bare-chested or dressed in dashing pirate/cavalier garb. Cassandra, however, has her green eyes covered with glasses and is reading a romance novel, cover clearly visible, over the man’s shoulder. Her expression and interest are clearly more on the book than the man holding her.
While I still love my idea, I am equally fond of the cover the Ravenous artists came up with.
Ripping the Bodice will be out on Ravenous Romance…(drumroll) tomorrow! So if you like comedy, romance and a little bit…okay, a lot of sex, please check it out!
Well, that’s not a bad alternate cover, I have to say! I like how the man’s torso manages to seem annoyed…
See, that’s what I thought! That his torso manages to seem annoyed, that is.
Lots of sex – YES! – lots of sex. Does the book have a centerfold? LOL – hey kudos, Zeez. The cover and the adblurb are great.
Are we looking at a homicide about to occur? Some men just don’t appreciate the true imperatives of life…..;-).
He’ll probably plead to a “justifiable” homicide. Not that it’lll help him much.
Congrats on achieving another publishing triumph. It’s just the beginning……
Heh. No centerfold, Marvin, although that’s not a bad idea… heeee…
Jack, you’ll have to read the book to find out. bwahahahahah!!!!!!
