Ever wondered what goes into making the cover of a romance novel?, a Sourcebooks blog, recently posted this video featuring a behind-the-scenes look at six romance covers and how they were created.  It's pretty entertaining - check it out!

    1. You're welcome! I loved it and wanted to share it, so I'm glad you enjoyed it too!

  4. Amazing video!

    I enjoyed seeing the creativity and motivation that goes into the photo shoots.

    I remember the painted covers of the 80s and 90s -- and a part of me still prefers them, but these new covers are very eye-catching!

    Thanks for sharing this!

    1. Actually, it's too bad they didn't have the internet then to post how the painted covers were made, as well. I mean, did Fabio have to stand in a studio for days being painted? Or was it done with photography? I'd love to find out more about those.


Thank you for your comments!
