I don't get a lot of covers with women on them, probably about a third of my titles have more than one person on the cover, or the heroine on the cover. I love this because because I get to see Onika Ramos as well as her hero Aidan Finn. It's almost like having a movie cast and getting to see the actor who plays your lead character.
I think it helps readers too, in a way. Sure, I make up faces in my head to go with characters I read, but if there's a great picture on a book cover, I have a place to start. Sometimes I can't see the characters looking like the cover art, but sometimes it's dead on.
Stay tuned for ROGUE HEART - 11 days and counting!
