Covers are the bane of an author’s existence. Sometimes they can sink your project or sell more than you rightly deserve. And its one of the reasons I always open the email from the cover department with mortal dread.
This past Friday the experience was no less nerve wracking when I received the cover for Nerds Are Freaks Too, an upcoming erotic realease to be published by Ellora’s Cave.
Instead of being disappointed when I opened the image, I immediately fell head over heels in love! Designed by their resident art director, Seneca, the cover is hands down my all time favorite. Its exactly what I wanted–a hot geek between the sheets.
I also loved how Seneca used black and white instead of color, which is pretty ironic considering I gave the hero a comissioned collection of black and white photographs of all the subway cars he spray painted during his bad boy day
