As I was making these covers, I noticed the black female/white male is quite popular in terms of cover art… and possibly even writings. In fact, when I did a search on interracial erotica, I noticed most of the covers were this combination. What I find odd about it, is growing up, I mostly saw black men/white or Asian women combinations, when it came to interracial couples. So it makes me wonder… are there more black female/white male couples out there than black men/white women couples? Is that why the genre seems more popular when doing a simple search? What says you?
I’ve been playing with these covers on and off for quite a while. Like the last set (elemental covers), I’d considered and did use different models. Then I asked myself why I’d want to use different models. Typically, when I write Reena Jacobs (at least when I wrote in the past), I tend to use the same characters over and over. It’s just fun building a world. So, I switched the models to just one couple. Here we have it… the first design.
Last but not least… 🙂 Well… something has to come last.
I’m not sure if I like this cover better than the first or not. It’s really a toss up for me. Whereas the first one the gal seemed more vulnerable, this one she’s bold. She’s the aggressor, and I like it. Yet the guy seems just as assertive, meeting her part way. Yum!
More skin, I say! More skin!
I have to say… I rather like the previous cover better though. I think there’s something about the pose that makes it more intimate… vulnerable, yet trusting. This one is nice also though. To me, it’s a bit move loving… tender and consoling. What do you think?
This time around, I asked myself how much it too much? You see… a cover can shout out erotica without being too revealing. Well, I was in the revealing mode… as you can see.
Thing is… I wonder if there’s too much flesh showing for those resellers (Amazon, CreateSpace, Smashwords, Barnes & Nobles, etc). Just how much flesh do they allow on the covers? Hmmm. Despite the amount of skin, I will say I did take the time to cover up her nipple with a well-placed hand. 🙂
