#CoverLove by Julie Jarnagin

Lately, I've been enjoying a lot of posts flying around social media with some of readers' favorite covers. It got me thinking about what makes a great cover. Romance covers often feature the couple or the hero or heroine like the covers below.

You also may have noticed a trend toward more setting-based covers. I love that these give you a great feel for the book, even without the characters.

Or if you like a more abstract feel to your covers, you might be more drawn to this kind of cover.

What do you think makes a cover great?

  1. Julie,
    All the covers you presented are gorgeous. I can't pinpoint the type of cover I like best. I just know it when I see it.

  2. Love the covers, Julie. For me the best cover is a dramatic cover that kind of smacks you in the face. And it definitely has to have to hero and heroine on it.
