A couple weeks ago, my editor gave me the head’s up that it’s time to start putting together ideas for cover art, blurbs, and titles for my current work in progress.
And since I know our readers have some of the most creative minds in the business, I figured this would be a great place to tap into a well of creativity.
So here you go . . .
I’ll give you the back cover blurb, a few of my title ideas, then let you go hog wild with ideas.
Seeking justice against the man who stole his birthright and destroyed his family, Logan Fowler travels to Pecan Gap, Texas to confront Zacharias Hamilton, the hardened criminal responsible for his father’s death. Only instead of finding a ruthless gambler alone in his den, he finds a man with a family. And when the youngest Hamilton sibling, a cheerful sprite of a woman with mismatched eyes and a kind heart insists on dousing Logan with sunshine every time their paths cross, Logan finds it increasingly difficult to focus on his quest for vengeance.
Many consider Evangeline Hamilton cursed. Orphaned at the age of three; losing her last blood relative, a brother, at the age of four; and possessing a pair of mismatched eyes—one bright blue, the other dark brown—Eva has had to fight to make a place for herself in a world that constantly rejects her. Yet, if even one person loves you, the world and its judgments can be overcome, and Eva has two—Seth and Zach. She would do anything to protect them. So, when a neighbor with a suspicious agenda sets up camp on the border of their properties, she takes it upon herself to ferret out his intentions.
The more time Eva spends with Logan, the more she glimpses hints of a devoted soul. Yet secrets linger. Torn between the man she loves like a brother and the man she’s coming to love in a very unbrotherly way, Eva is stuck in the middle. How can she follow her heart when it tugs in two opposite directions?
Since my heroine’s most unique feature is her mismatched eyes, I’m hoping to get a cover that highlights this with a close up on her eyes. Because of that, most of my title ideas center around phrases that use eyes.
My current working title is:
Eyes of the Beholder
Other ideas I’ve had include:
Through Her Eyes
More Than Meets the Eye
Eyes Only for You
And here are some that look at the revenge side of the story:
Secrets of the Heart
Love with a Vengeance
Beneath/Beyond the Surface
What ideas do you have?
