Should a book cover convey the theme of the story? Or should it attract attention to the characters, or simply be suggestive in a pleasant way to the reader’s eyes?
Is it better to have praise on the cover? I personally don’t like these tiny characters that I can’t even see on the Amazon book cover, but some authors love them.I thought that my book cover for Greek Encounter was attractive, but as usual I have second thought, and wonder if I should replace my Greek hunk--and yes, he is really Greek--by a romantic couple to be more in-line with my other book covers? Any suggestions?
How about title? Are you attracted to some titles?I like suggestive titles such as No More Lies; Right Name, Wrong Man, or Babies in the Bargain. Maybe I should have found a more romantic title to Greek Encounter, such as Her Sexy Opponent (too erotica), or Her Greek God (sounds paranormal), or Love in Mykonos (do all readers know where Mykonos is?) or Her Special Greek (too plain).
Strange, this book is selling three times more copies in the UK than in the US.
Please, share your opinions.
GREEK ENCOUNTER, http://tinyurl.com/6ulnxzg
Stefano Kostapoulos plans to demolish the dilapidated Pink Villa inherited from his grandmother and build a modern resort on the Greek island of Mykonos. But the American co-owner refuses to sell his shares and sends his attorney to Greece--a lawyer Stefano plans to shred to pieces at the hearing.
Except that Counselor Ashley Sheppard is a gorgeous redhead who knocks Stefano off his axis when he meets her incognito. Sparks fly during a first encounter that leads to a memorable night of passion.
In court, Ashley is in for a nasty surprise. Her handsome Greek god is the opponent. Her heart gnaws with pain, yet she attacks him with all her strength to defend her grandfather's case.
Stefano wins the lawsuit, but is about to lose Ashley. To keep her in Mykonos, he strikes a deal with his old enemy. Does Ashley dare to trust the Greek playboy? Or even understand her grandfather's strange change of heart regarding the Pink Villa?
