Watching: A-Team movie trailer (jeez, I feel so old!)
On the iPod: Halo by Beyonce
So I finally got my new cover for my outback Billionaires and Babies book. Ain’t it gorgeous? For those of you interested in behind-the-scenes inner workings of Harlequin, Harlequin/Silhouette authors have access to an online program that’s used to make the covers. In that data we supply info on physical descriptions of our main characters (eye color, hair, style, ethnicity etc), setting and tone/mood (bad boy hero? pregnant heroine? MOC?). We also offer three scene suggestions for the cover art and any links or pictures that would best describe that, a short 1p synopsis and story themes. It’s about eight screens to click through, so it’s pretty comprehensive.
However, most of my suggestions for this book were the traditional sexy couple-clinch (a la’ Boardrooms & A Billionaire Heir), and the B&B series feature… yeah, babies 😀 So that’s what we have, along with a gorgeous view of the outback on the back (which you can’t see here). And Alex looks suspiciously like Ben Affleck, which isn’t too shabby 😀
To celebrate the three outback B&B series, Maxine Sullivan, Robyn Grady and myself have launched a dedicated site/blog to them. It’s always fun to get together with my fellow Aussie writers and celebrate all things Australian – drop by and check it out!
