In a discussion about romance novel covers last week, someone asked why they couldn’t have beautiful covers like some of the ones on this page. I pointed out the need for the covers to carry the right genre signals and to be affordable. But then I thought, why not?

So here are some possible new covers for a couple of my books:



And here’s one that I actually think I might use:

It’s for the anthology of short stories I’m planning to publish later this month. I thought I might try putting it out in two different editions – the romance box set style and the slightly less genre specific style. And then see what happens.

Which do you like best? And which would you be more likely to buy?
