Covers (Cause they're fun to look at)














These are all covers for the same book. The first one is the original North American cover. The second is the French cover. And the third, the South American one.

Which one do you like the best? I admit I'm torn. I think they all look pretty great (though there is in fact no white wedding in the book). Opinions?

I like the American... although the South American looks hot, too. :-)

Hi Cynthia :) The American one is actually one of my all-time favorite covers - because it's so different and evocative.

What I like about the SA one is that they got the sensual tension really well. And that half-open shirt....;)

I like Craving Beauty. I like the whole suggestive thing.

Hey Okie Amber! :) Hmm, yep, it is subtle isn't it? I have a really large file of the original jpeg and it's amazing the details in that cover - down to the exquisite rendition of the bracelet.

Nalini, I love the American cover, but I reckon the South American cover is more indicative of the relationship of your wonderful characters. D'ya think the same afs was used for all three covers?

Nalini,
I like the american cover. It leaves more to the imagination, more sensual and also is a closer description to the theme of the book.

The French one makes me giggle!

I mean, I suppose it might be an okay cover, but I don't get it for Craving Beauty AT ALL!! The SA one is Okay, but the American one gets 2 thumbs up from me!

Do you know if the title is translated as Craving Beauty in the other languages or is it something weird?

I think the American Desire cover. It jumped off the shelf right into my hands. It's one of my favorite covers, ever.

Congrats on your Cata win, btw!

North American, hands-down.

I just like that one. Like you said, evocative.

Nalini Singh said...

Yvonne - I seriously have no clue. Sometimes the non-US covers use covers for other books, but other times you get covers that look like they were especially made for the book, like this one.

Hi Barbara! It does have the whole desert thing doesn't it? Which I love!!

Emma - Lol! Hmm, I don't know about the titles. Must find people who speak those languages to translate. I could do it on the internet but I'll probably get something weird *g*

Hi Alice! What? I won something?? I must know what?!

Nalini Singh said...

Oh my gosh! I did win something! Thanks for clueing me in Alice!! I checked the results when they first came out, saw the RCA results and went yay to the winners, never thinking to look at the Bk of the Year! :)

Nalini and Emma!
The spanish translation is not even close to the tittle in English. I like the English tittle better.
Craving Beauty in Spanish is translate into " Anhelando belleza or Deseando belleza"

Nalini Singh said...

Thanks for the translation, Barbara! I love the English title too. :)
