Girl in a Vintage Dress cover alert

The first time I see a new cover, I'm always a little nervy. Will it stand out on shelves? Will it capture the essence of the story? Will it intrigue busy, discerning readers long enough to pick up and scan the back blurb? Here's the brand-spanking new cover for my Harlequin Riva release in July, GIRL IN A VINTAGE DRESS. What do you think?

I really like it! I wish they'd bring them to Australia. They really stand out on Amazon compared to other country covers. I don't think you have anything to worry about =)

I'd pick it up, Nicola. Love, love it!

Thanks Lacey.

The new Riva covers are certainly vibrant and they definitely stand out on Amazon!

Nicola Marsh said...

Thanks Kristina, hope you do :)

Several readers are doing that, Kerrin, just for the covers!

As for the pursed lips, I think it's the crimson lipstick thing (which is very retro) and that's a huge theme in the book.

Stands out, huh? ;)
