Tuesday News—I Have a Cover!

Waiting to see a new cover is always a mixture of nail-gnawing trepidation and tummy-turning excitement. Harlequin invites an author’s input into the cover art, but even so I always wonder...will I like it? Will it suit the story?

I saw the cover for my July release, Firefighter Daddy, for the first time today, and I absolutely love it!

What do you think?

Until next time,
Lee

(P.S. It was 'fun' talking to you on the phone the other night. ;) My family sure laughed at me!)

Wow, Lee, I can see why you love the cover. It's great! The very cool thing is I know what's inside the cover is also going to be fabulous! :-) Can't wait for Firefighter Daddy to come out!

I liked it. The hero looks great and he also looks like he could be a dad. Quite different than your last cover.

Lee McKenzie said...

Thanks, Angi!

Lee McKenzie said...

Aw, Sheryll, you are such a sweetie! I hope you'll enjoy it!

Lee McKenzie said...

Joyful, I was kinda thinking it says, "Hug me." ;)

LOL re: the phone call! That seriously cracked me up!

Lee McKenzie said...

Jodie, I have loved all my covers but you're right - Firefighter Daddy has a different vibe.

This hero is more intense than the others I've written, and I think the cover really captures that.

He definitely captures the intensity of a guy trying to be a firefighter and a daddy!
He's going to capture a lot of attention on bookshelves in July, too:)
