Welcome to the Romance Writers Weekly Blog Hop.
The Romance Writers Weekly crew is a group of romance writers who hang out on our Facebook Page, and do a weekly blog hop to answer questions about our writing and face writing challenges.
If you’ve just hopped over from Jenna Da Sie’s blog, welcome. If you’re starting your blog hop here, feel free to jump back and see what Jeanna had to say.
Jenna also offered up today’s topic – Book covers: what do you like to see on Romance book covers? Both characters, one character, shirts off, fully clothed, faces, silhouettes? What turns you off from choosing one?
It’s no secret I like hot, sexy romance. As a heterosexual guy, I’ve seen more than enough six-pac abs on romance covers, but as the genre is primarily female oriented, that’s one of the first things I look for. Because I do judge a book by its cover when it comes to heat level.
Now if this were the cover picture, I’m probably passing right by, unless it’s from an author I know.
This one gets a second look. There’s a little steam there, but the blurb better sell me.
This one, I’ve probably skipped the blurb and am checking out the first chapter.
But that’s just me.
