Gottcha Covered

We're starting something new here at Three Wicked Writers that I'm really excited about. On Saturdays we'll be posting covers we found while browsing around that we really like. Cover art can be so beautiful, or sexy. Nine times out of ten its the first thing that draws you to a book so we'll going to honor some of the really awesome cover art out there.

Kelley's Pick

I don't know what it is about this cover that I like so much. It's simple yet beautiful. I love the cover and I know by looking at it, exactly what's in store for me. Love the wolf, the moon, and of course the hot male chest! LOL

Cover Artist: April Martinez
Publisher: Liquid Silver Books

Anne's Pick

The author is: Mary Winter

Cover artist: Valerie Tibbs, Tibbs Design

Why I picked it: The polar bear. This time it wasn’t the hunk that drew me, lol. That gorgeous polar bear made me want to read the blurb and isn’t that the idea? One of the things readers don’t realize is that the finished product is the result of a lot of hard work on the part of the artist. Most covers go through a few stages before everyone is satisfied with the final product. Valerie shared a few of the earlier versions of this cover with me and the really funny thing is, I liked one of the earlier mockups better than the final version. LOL In the end, we each have our own likes and dislikes when it comes to art.

What a neat idea! I'm always drawn to covers, too. I look forward to what y'all come up with every week.

Hey ladies! Thanks for picking one of my covers!

Anne's been with me since day one with my graphic design business and without her encouragement, I wouldn't be doing it.

Thanks again!
