Cover Crazy!

In honor of my very first book cover(s), I've decided to start a new feature here at Whispers. Cover Crazy is a meme started by The Book Worms, and it's right up my alley. I LOVE (love love love) book covers. This meme is all about admiring the art, not the actual content of the book. It's purely visual... you know, like men tend to be.

My pick for this week's Cover Crazy post is The Peach Keeper, by Sarah Addison Allen. Ms. Allen and I have something in common--our books are being released the same week.

What I love:

--The muted colors...

--The pretty floating blossoms...

-- The soft tendril of hair on the back of the girl's neck is romantic, but the naked tree in the distance adds intrigue...

--The cover tells a story, yet it gives nothing away...

--It's girly!

  2. I've also become a real connosieur of covers as art and I agree, this example is really beautiful. I think that we put much more effort into the psychology of cover art and as a case in point myself and my publisher are currently reviewing my own novels cover art with this attention to the themes behind the story.

    Great article.

  3. Ohhhh, Dean from Australia! I had a lot of fun reading your comment using an Aussie accent ;) Thanks for stopping by!

  4. That cover had to make Sarah Addison Allen very happy! It's gorgeous. So cool you'll be highlighting your favorite covers. :)
