Girls Write Out
Sunday, June 26, 2011

I was in a bookstore this week browsing the covers. I'm mostly using my Nook to read, but there's just something about looking at beautiful covers.

I love Sarah Dessen's covers. Also Elin Hilderbrand. I could just sit and stare at them. They beg me to pick them up and take them home. I haven't read Dessen yet (she writes Young Adult fiction), but I know the inside of Hilderbrand's novels are as well done as the outside.

This is the cover for my next book, due out in January. I'm so excited about "The Accidental Bride"! It's my favorite of all my books. Shay is a strong and sassy heroine, well matched by the hero Travis. And the circumstances they find themselves in, well, the book practically wrote itself.

As you can see by the photo, the Thomas Nelson team once again went to work and came back with a beautiful, evocative cover. They don't miss a single detail. This one required a photo shoot to get just the right look.

What do you like about the cover? What does it make you wonder? How does it make you feel?

This cover is so beautiful that it immediately puts me into that "dreamy, romantic state of mind" I can't wait to read this one. I loved A Cowboy's Touch.

Covers realIy attract me but the title has to grab me first and boy does The Accidental Bride stop me in my tracks! :)

It makes me wonder if she's giving him flowers. :) That would fit with her sassy personality.

By the way, I enjoy Sarah Dessen's books. She does have awesome covers!

The cover looks pure and simply: romantic! The beautiful bright scenery makes me feel happy and wistful. It's obvious that there is a story behind their looks!
