Love and Cupcakes—Major Emphasis on the Love—Cover Reveal

Going with a small press for my debut novel Love and Cupcakes, I didn’t know what to expect when it came to my cover. But I didn’t think I’d have much say in the design. And I was a little worried—okay closer to terrified is probably more accurate—that I wouldn’t love my cover. As a quasi-designer, I am super critical of book covers. Contrary to the old adage, I will judge a book by its cover. Then I’ll let its words sway me to read or move onto the next one. But a good design is what first hooks me.

But this was my book cover. It would represent my words, my characters, my story. I wanted it to be perfect. And holy wow, did Swoon Romance deliver. They nailed the magic and the romance and the oh-my-God-Jack-and-Graham-are-so-freakin’-adorable-I-could-die vibe. See?

Love and Cupcakes

I want to hug this cover, cuddle with it, buy it a nice fancy dinner and ask it to marry me. That’s how much I love it.

  1. Adorable! I love it! It really does pull me into the “magic” of what’s beyond the cover. I tend to read a little more adult/erotic type of romance, but this, I may have to just give it a try!

  2. How wonderful, Susan! You are so, so right. I’ve never thought a lot about the book cover cliche (which is strange since we’re all about books and writing) but I, too, judge a book by its cover. We’ve all seen those unfortunate lurid covers where we just kind of cringe and think, poor author. Fortunately, you don’t have that problem!

    So glad for you.
