So, What Do You Think?

I received the cover for Rules of Engagement, [warning: shameless promo ahead] which will be released February 1, 2008. At first glance, I really, really liked it. I still like it.

The BF saw the cover and asked, "When did you start writing African American romances?"

"Uh, I'm not," I replied.

"Oh," he said, still looking bemused. "Are you sure?"

I rolled my eyes, but he started me thinking.

So, what do you think? Is the cover misleading?

Hey, I like it too. It looks like they have a really good tan, my mind doesn't go any farther than that.

Thanks, ladies.

Yeah, I'm jealous of their tans. When I buy foundation, the girls at the counter don't bother with going through the process of matching a shade; they usually just go for the palest one they have. *sigh*

Ann,

Neither of the characters conveyed African American to me when I saw the cover.

Yep, looks like great tans to me... If you want to see the difference take a look at my or Marilyn Lee's book covers.

I like it, BTW ;D
