I am a romance novelist targeting middle-aged women readers. This book is sexy but not erotica. I'd like a beautiful cover a woman will be proud to own. I'm targeting The Bachelorette crowd and Mamma Mia fans.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Update: The heroine of this book is a 37 year old travel writer. Heroine is attractive Caucasian, long-haired brunette with blue eyes, fairly conservative dresser, international vibe, lives in Georgetown. Book cover for title 'All the Boys I Ever Kissed - A Choose Your Own Ending Novel'. My pen name is Marilyn Kelly. There are three men - a blond firefighter/paramedic from Washington DC, a dark-haired Argentine athlete, and an English baron with ginger hair, all very handsome. Readers get to choose a favorite from 3 endings. Kissing is prominent, so is travel. Ambulance, Castle, Andes mountains or tango are all prominent images in book but don't have to be on the cover. She makes a list of all the boys she ever kissed and starts calling them, and there are references to her handing out roses like on tv. Aiming for The Bachelorette or Mamma Mia fans, but still classy.
Back cover copy: Lana Patterson wants a husband, but she's striking out online and with blind dates. Her sister suggests she look to her past to find her future, and Lana starts contacting old boyfriends. She's been practically housebound since her husband died, so she starts local, in Washington DC. Captain CPR is Chippendale firefighter hot, but other than his incredible body and compatible sense of humor, Lana doesn't find him the ideal bedmate or potential husband. Pierce Abrams runs into burning buildings for a living, and she wants a husband who will be there to walk her daughter down the aisle. Lana grew up as a Foreign Service child and is now a travel writer. Her sister and daughter insist she hit the road, so Argentina and England are her next stops. The first boy she ever kissed is athletic, adventurous, intelligent, wealthy, and the most amazing Latin lover. Unfortunately, polyamorous Sergio Salazar has a closet full of girlfriends that he claims he's willing to give up. Lana has her doubts. Her high school boyfriend has more potential, since his current girlfriend is on the wane. Duncan Claymore is a baron with a castle, and oh so tempting, even introducing Lana and family to the Duchess of Cambridge. It would be a fantasy life, but his conniving sister threatens to derail their renewed love affair. Three amazing men are all having adventures of their own. Which one will capture Lana's heart? The reader gets to choose! Marilyn Kelly writes sexy stories with a twist of scandal. Visit her at MarilynKelly.net.
