Book covers. Is a picture worth a thousand words?

Amanda's BVS BLOG

Books and covers is a subject I have talked about a few times, but book jackets are just so important to our business. I should at this point mention our wonderful cover designer Jessica Greeley.  She has done such a great job with our designs and recovering some of our back catalog, as they go onto Kindle Unlimited. The latest book being Karlene Cameron’s story Dark Awakening. You can find more of our back catalog there too.  I was chatting with an author this morning about her likes and dislikes of some romance covers.  A funny part of the conversation today, hit on this idea, that the book jackets that we say we like, are not necessarily the type of covers we would pick up when we buy a book.  I think most of us have pet hates when it comes to design.  I would love to hear your views on this subject.  What are some of your favorite covers, especially the romance genre? And what draws you to them? How do they make you feel, and do they accurately match what the book is about? And does that matter?  Do you like photographic or drawn?  Do you like the clinch covers? The male torso? Something more suggestive, or the quite subtle?

I’d love to hear your comments here on the blog, the BVS Facebook page, or my Facebook page. We have a twitter page too, and we are always happy to follow people that follow us.

I like subtle covers with lots of atmosphere. I really like the covers for The Otherling and The Proposition – very classy!
