Book covers are like people—they both get face lifts. Does prettier wrapping work? I have the perfect opportunity to find out with SEASON OF LOVE, my romance anthology with Gerri Brousseau, Merry Holly, Bobbi Lerman and Stephanie Queen.

We ultimately chose a design that had more of a close-up shot of a loving couple. One that showed more physical contact between the man and woman. In my opinion, it also shows a more intense chemistry between them.
Do you agree? Does the new cover work? You tell me—here are the “before” and “after” pictures:
