Romance & Paranormal
3 Titles will start pricing at 99 cents on a Kindle Countdown Deal for 36 hours.

Okay so this is really cool. We are showcasing 8 best selling authors. Please visit their blogs after you read my post.

I was shown the following book covers:

And then I was asked to write a 200 - 300 word comment on which one or two of these covers & titles appeals to me most.

So I will start there. This was very tough for me but I picked two covers that intrigued me and they are The Merry-Go-Round by Donna Fasano and Timelapse by Lorrie Farrely. Let me break it down for you.

I was immediately drawn to The Merry-Go-Round because of course the name reminds me of a favorite childhood activity. However I know they are probably talking about it in another sense ie someone's life being like a merry-go-round. But the real draw was the woman on the front. She captured that look in her face that said to me "I have a story to tell and you are going to have to find out all about me to hear it". And looking at her I want to find out about her and her story. The body langueage, where she is on the cover (at a desk), I want to know more. Again her face says it all. Whoever picked this model did a great job. And again, who in their life has not felt like the world was spinning too fast? So that is why I chose this book.

The next book, Timelapse just yelled out to me READ ME I AM INTERESTING AND MYSTERIOUS! I love the coloring. I did a post once that if you put orange on a book cover it will always stand out and be chosen to be read. The name intrigues me because why timelapse? Is someone loosing time? And why? Or is it something else completely like nothing I have read. A different story. And the cover does not say romance really to me however there is a couple on it so that may be the romance part there. They look like they are running from something or to something and I want to find out what. And that remote control...what is that for? Is it part of the story or  is the cover just playing tricks on me. This is a story I would want to read and this is why this was my second pick.

Now there are more prizes to give away so keep checking back.   But first the authors of the above books had a job to do for this hop also. And that  job was to make their post for the day a piece entitled: "a day in the life of....." (book character's name), giving readers interesting insight into their books. So please visit the following links to the authors pages and read these great posts!
