Making a mad dash by home before heading to Birmingham for the weekend for the Southern Magic Reader's Luncheon, I found a box of goodies from London. Copies of my 2nd book from Harlequin Mills & Boon!! It's always exciting to get books, but when I receive the hardback copies, it's also the first time I see the cover.
Getting a cover is kind of like going on a blind date. You're always hoping for the best, but more worried that you're going to get dog ugly and no personality to boot. I love Jane Millionaire's cover. The Doctor's Pregnancy Bombshell's cover fits the book to a T and the heroine's smile makes me think of Cameron Diaz (who I adore in movies!). This third one is a gorgeous blond guy so no complaints. Well...maybe he's a bit young appearing to be a renowned heart surgeon and to have a fifteen year old son, but hey, this is fantasy. :) Actually, I'm quite pleased as he's a blond. I'd actually worried that if the cover included a hero, he'd be dark headed and Daniel is definitely a blond (and yes in case you are wondering I was inspired by Daniel Craig--remember, I blogged about this some time back and posted a couple sexy pics of the new James Bond.). I'm told it's rare to get a blond on the cover. Blond so works for me...after all, there is Daniel Craig, Matthew McConaughey, David Beckham, the list goes on and on... :)Dare I mention that my dearest pal and roommate this weekend labeled my hero as "Doogie"? Nah, better not mention that.
