One of my favorite things to do when I read this blog is to scroll through and see all the covers. They are so HOT! I don't have a cover for you all yet, but I do know one is in the works and as soon as it's ready, I'll get it posted.
Let me introduce myself, I'm Annalise Russell, and my first story with Kensington is scheduled for release in September '08. IN HIS BED will be part of an historical erotic romance collection titled, THE PLEASURE OF HIS BED. The other stories in the collection are written by Donna Grant and Melissa MacNeal, so I am in great company.
For me, a book cover is the first thing that catches my eye and compels me to pluck that book from the shelf and explore the story within. As I wander the aisles and aisles of books looking for a new story to escape into, I skim the packed shelves until a promising pair of eyes, muscular arms, or a washboard stomach, lures me to touch.
Whew! Did someone turn up the heat in here? Yeah, I know...I'm hopeless. But who doesn't mind something awfully nice to look at to go along with that story? So what does a book cover do for you?
