I just received a message informing me that the cover for my book, PLAY IT AGAIN SAM has won the June Classic Cover Contest at the ClassicRomanceRevival Web site.
As the site name implies, it promotes novels of the more classic romance style in varying degrees of “sweet” “sexy” and “sensual.” The authors affiliated with that site write the kinds of books that were popular when romances first took publishing by storm.
Winning this is a thrill, and I am glad that the book will get some extra exposure because of the win. It is a special story about love the second time around and was inspired by what happened to a good friend when her husband of 25 years decided he didn’t want to be married anymore.
However, I am even more excited for my daughter, Dany Russell, who designed the cover. This win is as much for her as it is for me. Actually, probably more, since it is her work being honored. I am so happy for her.
