Here are two upcoming historical covers I thought were particularly interesting and eye-catching. I'm a big fan of Siri Mitchell. My favorite book of hers so far is Love's Pursuit. I think her upcoming cover is beautiful - love that dress! Love the title, too, as it sounds quite romantic. I've not heard of Karl Bacon and need to find out more about him. My guess is he's new to the CBA. His cover appeals to me, perhaps because it's so different than the typical CBA cover, if there is such a thing.
I have some news about the cover for The Colonel's Lady ~ I actually saw the comp, or design for it recently. And I'm happy to report we have the blue dress we were hankering for:) Overall, it's so very different than TFD and CML that it looks like it's from a different author! The designer is different this time. I love it and can't wait to post here. Best not say more and hand you a spoiler. Since it's still undergoing changes, I can't give you a peek quite yet. I will say that it's along the same lines as Siri's cover here and looks more like an actual photograph. Since The Colonel's Lady is a very different sort of book than my first two, it seems to fit.
There are so many good books out there - and so many great covers. I finished watching North & South this weekend and was completely overwhelmed by the acting and story line. My old favorite The Last of the Mohicans is now bumped to second place. I should have Elizabeth Gaskell's novel by week's end. I'm looking forward to it as she actually gets into her hero's head, something most female British writers of that period didn't do. On a lighter note, I'm on page 109 of Making Waves and it's just as delightful and funny as Lorna is:)
I'd love to know what you're reading right now or looking forward to reading. I learn so much from you all. After all, I wouldn't have fallen in love with North & South if it weren't for you, and now I'm forever in your debt!
