Putting My Imagination to the Test

Putting My Imagination to the Test

There are many romance novel related newsletters that pop up in my email—with permission, of course. It’s always good to have many resources available, from webpage design to editing to book marketing to stock images. I was lucky to see that Romance Novel Covers was having a sale on their stock images. Even before the sale, the stock images are quite affordable at $10–$15, depending on the size of the image—it is important to note that if you can afford to purchase the larger size, do it, because I made the mistake of purchasing my images at the smaller size. I can use these stock images to design my webpage or blog. More importantly, I can use these images to create my e-book covers.

So, I purchased a couple of stock images that portray each of the books in my Senses of Love series. Then, I went to work on designing a new cover for the first book, Scent of Attraction. The previous cover looked too amateur compared to the many that I see on the published books I purchase. I wanted to go for a light and fresh looking cover with some color. I liked with what I came up with. Hopefully, there’s nothing else on the cover that’s needed.

Book 1 Blurb


I’ve heard that if you have a little blurb summarizing what the book is about, it helps when you get writer’s block. It also helps to keep the book going in the right direction. Here’s a draft summary of what book 1: Scent of Attraction is about.

 

Charlotte Emery has a problem with her nose. It dictates her life but she doesn’t know it. She doesn’t want to take a possible romance with her textpal, Max, to the next level for fear that she smell something amiss and taint that relationship.

Max Roberts feels a great connection with Charlotte and wants to take it to the next level but he doesn’t want to blur the lines between business and pleasure. When they finally meet in person, sparks fly.

Things go well at the beginning, but then her nose gets in the way. Usually, her nose wins. This time her heart’s declaring war.

 

I also have a temporary cover to keep me in line:

scent-of-attraction-filler

Let the writing continue :)!
