This week is all about Anne Cain, right? Right. So I’m going to tell you about the day I fell in love with Anne and realized she was the best and most awesome sauced cover artist on planet Earth. Sure, I could give you examples of other work she did before mine, but I love what she’s done for me bestest, so there! On with the art show!
Here it is, the one that made me love Anne like Anne’s never been loved on before. Treasured. My dirty, kinky, filthy, sexy pirate time travel. This is exactly what I asked for, only better. Why? Because I am visually retarded. I can’t tell you how many times my understanding of art or covers has been, “It’s pretty” or “It’s kinda fug.” Anne does my cover? I don’t even have to worry about the fug possibilities.
Then, there is a the amazingness of series continuity. I had this idea of people and cityscapes and prettiness for my In The Heat Of The Night series. Allow me to show off what Anne did for this.
First up was sexy girl on girl action. And, man, did it turn out nice.
Then, THEN! As if I couldn’t love her more, we got to my big girl cover. I believe my input for this cover was, “The heroine is a plus sized MODEL. She’s pretty, not frumpy. NO SKINNY CHICKS.”
And voila. Anne does her Anne magic. Sexy Big Girls Lives!
Still, I think the boy on boy is my fave of the series (Treasured will always be my ultimate fave, methinks). I mean, yum. Look at it. You just wanna slurp your screen!
So, I thought it would be a good time to give away some of this awesomeness. Anne’s going to have her own contest later this week, but if you’d like the chance to win a pdf copy of one of the books she’s prettified for me just tell me which you’d like in the comments and I’ll pick a winner on Thursday and announce it on this post.
*AND THE WINNER IS ESTELLA* Thanks to all who entered!
