Just Feeling Random Today…

Okay…you know how I LOVE kissing pictures/paintings, right?  And how I love basically any picture/painting that is romantic, right?  Well, the other day I was just…I don’t know goofing around on the Internet after having seen an old-school romance novel cover (Victoria Holt) I liked and found a website with a TON of the artists work!  These are the kinds of covers I remember when I was a teenager!  How fun, huh?

So anyway, since a few of my books (the ones that were once Love Notes) are getting new covers right now, I thought it would be fun to just be silly and see what covers I would’ve picked by Elaine Gignilliat for MY books, if I were writing back in the 70s and 80s!  Ha ha!  How funny!  So, maybe you can help me out with this first one:  For Shackles of Honor…I have two I can’t decide between.  Which one do you like best?  Again, just for fun!

So?  Which one do you think would have fit Shackles of Honor?

And what do you think of this one for The Whispered Kiss?

Seriously…I’m just goofing around!  If you want to peruse Elaine Gignillat’s stuff and see which ones you’d pick for MY book covers (if it were 30-40 years ago) Click Here for that will take you to the images (by author).   Yep…this is an example of something I do when I SHOULD be working!

    The left one looks like it was made just for Shackles of Honor! That would be my pick…
    The bottom one would work for the Whispered Kiss too… bringing to life scenes from the book, just makes it easier to see how it looks in my head! ;^)

    YUM.I think for “Shackles” I like the one with the water and cliffs in the back drop. You know…it’s perfect for your book given the plot and everything. Although I also LOVE the balcony one…*sigh* makes me want to read some romance! 🙂

  14. Kareena says:

    I really like them both, but like everybody else, the one on the left. I just love the way his cape and the cliffs. After seeing these I want to read some romance. Especially some older ones. Have to dig out the Barbara Cartland, haha.

  15. Amy says:

    For “Shackles” I think the one on the left is perfect. With it being by the sea and the cliffs it matches wonderfully. I really like the one you picked for the Whispered Kiss. I love when you do random post like this they are so much fun

  16. Chelsea says:

    Definitely the one on the left!! I love the shot of the sea behind them and the manor in the back. It’s amazing and that one prefectly fits!!

    The one on the left. Leaves for the imagination

  21. Jelaire says:

    And the voting is unanimous! The picture on the left is completely perfect! I love that cover for Whispered Kiss! It would have been a wonderful cover had you been writing then and not now.
    Has anyone else noticed how much we all use exclamation points here?

  22. Mary Ann says:

    Marcia!!!! I LOVE you!!! This is a perfect place for me to go to get romantic poses for my photography! Just my style!!! Thank you, thank you!!! (And I like the one on the left too, such dramatic pose and colors! I like how they are both showing passion, in the other one she seems a little out of it.)

  23. Kim says:

    I LOVE those books, they’re definitely towards the top of the list when choosing my favorite books by you!
    For Shackles, I’d definitely say the cliff with the castle, it hits the story so well!
    I also think that’s an awesome picture for Whispered Kiss, totally perfect!
