Cover Crush: No Longer Alone by Melinda Viergever Inman

We all know we shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but in today's increasingly competitive market, a memorable jacket can make or break sales.

I am not a professional, but I am a consumer and much as I loath admitting it, jacket design is one of the first things I notice when browsing the shelves at Goodreads and Amazon. My love of cover art is what inspired Cover Crush, a weekly post dedicated to those prints that have captured my attention and/or piqued my interest. Enjoy!

Layered imagery always makes me do a double-take and Melinda Viergever Inman's No Longer Alone is a great example as to why. The kissing couple is the obvious heart of the design, but the house and the twister imply that this novel is a romance was gravitas.  The whole image comes together beautiful and leaves me curious about the narrative and how all these elements come together.

I really like that cover. I even went off to Amazon to see about the book and have added it to my never-ending to-read list. What a fun post. I'm off to see more of them.

Thank you for the recognition! I had a wild year for a writer, complete with a relocation clear across the country! And somehow I missed seeing your nomination back in July! I'm grateful! Thank you! If you've read the story by now, I'd love to have your review on Amazon! Reviews sell books! Thanks again!
