Romance Writers Weekly – Judging a book by its cover.

RWW FB Banner

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.

Welcome to the Romance Writers Weekly Blog Hop.

Today’s topic comes from the wonderful Kathryn Renard: Who’s your celebrity crush/which of your characters do you have a crush on. Talk about your celebrity crush, past or present, and what makes/him her crush-worthy. Or, which character have you written that you have to admit, you have a tiny crush on. 

 

Oh girl. Your timing on this couldn’t have been better, because I am crushing hard right now on the amazing Olivia Munn. What makes her crush-worthy? Oh, let me see…

Aside from the fact that she’s gorgeous, sexy, finger-lickin’ good. She’s dating a top ranking NFL quarterback (Green Bay Packer Aaron Rogers no less).

Not enough for you? She’s going to be a freekin’ X-man in the upcoming film:

Yeah, (sigh), where was I?

Oh yeah, Olivia Munn. If only she were fictional…

O…kay! I’m going to go hit the showers now. Need to cool off.
