Under A Texas Star - The Cover


In the Cover Poll, Cover A led the race with 73% of the votes on this blog and maybe a little more when the emailed votes were tallied.

On my Facebook Page Cover B was a bit more popular for a while. "Well, it looks like I'm in the minority, so far. I liked "A"." said Sheila Dalton. Hilary Van Welter said: "B with a horse somewhere! Good omen!"
The horse was very popular with the "A" crowd too. "Got to have the horse in the shot. Love the covers!" said Peggy Blair. But sex appeal was also a driving factor. As Robin said, "Cover A - much more steamy - I want to dive in and let him push me up against the rock."

"Steamy" came up several time in the comments. Sherry Isaac also commented: "The red tells me this book is on fire! WOW." I hope this means that Under A Texas Star will be a hot seller.

 My thanks to everyone who responded. Though April 15 was the designated decision day, I can't wait any longer.

The envelope, please...

And the winner is...

Cover Poll

Inquiring Minds Want to Know...

I don't know about the rest of you, but my excitement is mounting as Under A Texas Star gets closer and closer to publication. The contract is signed. My advance has been received. Now, after being consulted on the earlier versions, Imajin Books has sent me the two finalist for the cover art.

Which one do you think should be the cover of my upcoming mystery/romance/western?

 After flipping a coin, this design was designated Cover A. Below is Cover B.

There's a poll in the sidebar of this blog where you can vote for your favourite. Get your vote and comments in by April 15, 2011 and I'll pass it along to Imajin Books. They'll make the final choice, but your input might sway their decision. If nothing else, this inquiring mind wants to know what you think.
