It’s cover reveal time!
It’s like someone out there in Designer Land knew I wasn’t a fan of faces on covers, and said, Quick, cover her face up! (Or at least, this is what I like to think because I might be a tad self-absorbed)
The title of Melissa Walker’s next novel, Small Town Sinners, is what immediately draws me to this cover. I’ve grown up all over the place, but now that I’ve landed in the South, I’ve come to know small towns (and SINNERS!) pretty well.
Lately I’ve been pleased to find more and more covers for upcoming novels taking themselves a little more seriously. I can definitely support cover art that calls for its audience to use a little more brain power. (And this says a lot because y’all I can be such a lazy thinker) Small Town Sinners definitely lends itself to this camp.
And hooray for symbolism, even the universal sort. The apple and the heart are a nice touch, but is our protagonist on the cover the temptress or the temptee?
Overall, it’s definitely cover love for me. What do you think?
