Today is the cover reveal for Brush Strokes, Janelle Stalder her first contemporary romance book! Check out the cover:
Not sure what to think of this cover. At first look I was a bit confused what actually is going on on this cover. It takes a moment to fully graps it. Then the colour of the word strokes catched my attention. I like the splash of colour, although besides that I think the cover is a bit too dark. The black and white cover with two models on it, is very standard for this genre and this alone already makes it easy to categorize as a contemporary romance. Not a big fan of the cover, it just isn’t all that special, although I do like the sound of the blurb.
by Janelle Stalder
Art student, Olivia Banks, was living her dream at an exclusive school when everything came crashing down around her. Now back in the small town she grew up in, she’s forced to spend her senior year at her old school where she’s known as the ‘freak’, all because she’d rather focus on her painting than the trivial drama of high school. But things aren’t the same as they were when she left. And the one thing that is turning her life upside down the most just happens to be the resident bad boy, Colt Morgan. Her senior year was supposed to fly by so she could pack up and leave again, but what happens when there’s suddenly a reason to want to stay?

I’m not sure I like the cover and I’m a fan of the black and white photo–so sad.

The black and white photo cover can be really done well, but this one just doesn’t do it for me. The blurb does sounds good though and I am a fan of Janelle Stalder her fanatasy series Eden, so I am really curious how she tackles Contemporary Romance.
