Confession: I am not an adventurous reader. At least, I’m not adventurous in the sense that I’ll try an unknown author if not suggested by a friend who knows my taste in books. Which is why the covers — especially romance covers — are so important; how else are future fans supposed to be drawn in, and then ensnared*?
When I was browsing through Dear Author’s upcoming release lists for the summer, I was struck by how many of the covers I liked. These covers then led me to read blurbs on Amazon, or the author’s site, and I thought I’d share with you the titles — and authors — I’m taking a chance on, all because of the fantastic cover art.
Keep up the good work, publishers.
What do you think are some of the best covers of June through September?
*I am a glommer. If I like an author, I will read every backlist title I can find. They don’t even have to be good — I will simply keep reading, in hopes I’ll find another work by that author that I could love just as much as that first one. See? Glommer.
