New Sexy Fun Erotic Romance Book Covers!

One of the amazing things about online publishing is that you can keep refining your publicity!

One of the exhausting things about online publishing is that you can keep refining your publicity!

It may have looked for the last few days on the blog as if I've been totally obsessed with the 2013 PATA Manzanillo spay/neuter campaign. That would be true! And now our little rescue puppy Chito needs help with his medical bills. Please check out these posts if you haven't already.

Back in book world, things have been progressing nicely behind the scenes. Today we're ready to reveal a whole new cover look to the Carole Remy Sexy Fun Erotic Romance novels! It all started with an epic cover fail... just a teaser... this Frankenstein's monster fail is so epic it gets its own post—watch for it!

When we got past the epic fail, the movie-poster-quality cover for Beauty of the Beast inspired us to reinvent the other two covers as well. Here's a sneak peak of the Beauty cover, which will get the whole reveal treatment in a few days. I LOVE this cover!!


Once we found the perfect Sexy Fun font, we decided that each cover deserves its own Sexy Fun Erotic Romance tag line. So that's what we did! The changes to the Twelve Nights cover are minor, just the new tag line and a little tweaking. Aren't the girls beautiful!, and intriguing, and a little bit scary...


The cover for Who Is Candid? got more of a makeover. Since Candid aka Lucy is being chased by the paparazzi and the entertainment magazines through most of the book, we thought it would be fun to try a magazine style cover. Finding just the right font to look tabloid-ish and still book-ish was a fun challenge. Then we moved the Sexy Fun Erotic Romance tag line up the page, down the page, into the middle of the page, until finally (like Goldilocks) it felt just right! Peekaboo! Who Is Candid?


So, what do you think? My personal challenge was to get past looking at the covers as art, and to start thinking of them as cereal boxes. Yup, cereal boxes! The breakfast browser in the supermarket aisle wants to know if they're getting corn flakes or granola, and the same goes for the novel browser on Amazon.

So now you know—if you like independent women and masterful men, and you think laughing is erotic, these Sexy Fun Erotic Romances are for you!

What do you think? Have you had a book cover adventure of your own? Do these covers start to create a brand identity (like Kellogg's cereal!)? I'm looking forward to our conversation!
