Cover Contest: Anna and the French Kiss

I only do these once in awhile, but when Cindy at Princess Bookie posted a cover contest for Anna and the French Kiss, where the winner receives a pre-order/Eiffel Tower mini statue/bookmarks, I had to jump on it. I'm still pretty anxious to get my hands on an ARC (speaking of .. if anyone has an ARC of ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS that they wouldn't mind trading .. let me know! I've got Crescendo & Torment & a few other good ones!)

Anyway, I did two of these. The first was silhouettes; fun and colorful and a far cry from the original. But after seeing some of the other entries, I knew I had to step up my game. So I did something more realistic. I'm not sure how I feel about it. It's definitely not one of my best, but hopefully some of you will like it enough to give it a vote!

My entry:

Cindy still has quite a few entries to gather before the voting begins, so if you're interested, make a cover, post it somewhere and link it here. And when the voting starts, if you like mine enough - VOTE, VOTE, VOTE.

  8. I know this post is around 2 years old, but I saw your cover and I think it's amazing! I love the colors and placement you chose--the sillhouttes and the Eiffel Tower in the background add to the romantic atmosphere, and I think the golden lights portray that bright, bubbly, happy feeling people (or at least I) get when reading this book wonderfully. Amazing job!
