WRECKED Blog Party – Part 3 – The Cover!!

May 16, 2015




Yeah, are all of you in love with this book cover Paul Richmond made for WRECKED? I know I am! And I just ADORE seeing the stages of creation he goes through to give me the masterpieces he’s done for my other books! #love

When Paul asked me to fill out the form for what I envisioned, I attached a bunch of vintage eighties romance novel covers—you know the ones with Fabio and ripped bodices? LOL I explained that I wanted an epic, classic romance novel cover. When Paul first sent his sketch, I almost FREAKED out, I was so excited. I mean, even in the black and white sketch, he NAILED it, right?

So why did I want a vintage style cover?

Well, firstly because, old school covers like this are few and far between. Rarely do you see them in gay romances. But mostly, I felt it really expressed the mood of WRECKED. This book is a 96K read full of wanting, romance, love, surprise and a dash of gypsy magic.

Magic, you might say?

Yes, like my awesome cover artist Paul Richmond, the hero of WRECKED Rief is also an artist. And when things got bad in his life he turned to his art. And what his mind’s eye created was a beautiful blond man, someone who did not judge him and always made him feel safe.

What Rief NEVER expected was that one day he would rescue that very man from drowning at sea!

Will the real man be someone that Rief can trust? Or, like the oil and canvas, will Mathew become nothing more than a memory, gone before Rief ever has a chance to heal from his broken past?

Well, I guess you will just have to read WRECKED to find out!

While Rief uses his art to cope with stress and depression, what about you guys? What sort of things do you do when life gets to much? What is your escape which brings you peace?

Mine is reading with a glass of wine. Or perhaps a hot bath and a glass of wine… maybe all three if it’s really been a bad day!

    I’ve always enjoyed seeing the process in art, and when I was a professional artist, I loved sharing this process with them, too!

    Cool, that you were going for a vintage 80′s feel.

    The magic part is wonderful. Reminds me of Practical Magic, and even my own life, how sometimes the heart’s call is answered.


  2. Hi, Ivan! Thanks for stopping by! I have really enjoyed watching these covers come to life. ANd it’s funny you mention Practical Magic! My friends were just teasing me because I’ve never seen it. I guess I better add it to my Netflix!
