Cover Reveals for New Historical Fiction

I am going to be doing cover reveals here. I am a lover of good art, and many of the covers are really well done. I hope you enjoy looking them over as I do!

The cover for "The Girl Who Came Home" is fantastic! A huge improvement from when it was originally self-published. Looking forward to reading!

I agree, Sophie! The pastels work well with the darker lower section (and also with my blog colors, lol).

The lower two have merit in their own right as far as artistic impression goes: each reflecting content extremely well. I love Judith's cover, too, but overall it errs toward similar erotic/romance cover images representing a later period in history i.e. Georgian era. People won't be disappointed by Judith's writing, that's a fact. As a marketing ploy it may work in trawling fans of the Georgian era to the Tudor dynasty: or not if it lacks erotic content.
