Can You Judge A Book’s Genre By Its Cover?

I received my final cover art for my debut novel, CAPTIVE, due to be released electronically and in print by Grand Central publishing’s digital imprint, Forever Yours in April 2013. Yay! I love how the color scheme pops on the screen!

I don’t want to say much more about the cover art because I thought we’d have a little fun on Attacking The Page. Can you tell by the cover alone what genre this book is? Obviously by the sexy couple you’d know it’s a romance novel, but what romance sub-genre would you expect to read? (Hey, no peeking at my bio for hints.)

Here is my cover. Click on the image for a larger view.

Here is the poll – It’s my first poll, so I hope it works:

Poll closes at 9:00 pm EST on Wednesday 10/24/12. Don’t forget to visit again on Thursday to see if you guessed correctly. :)

As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section!

  1. The cover looks fantastic!!!!!

  2. Gorgeous, Kathy! It really pops, and it’s sexy. =)

  3. Great cover, but the futuristic element does not show. Still, with a good cover, people will want to see what’s inside!

  4. I disagree, I think the gem on the swords saws futuristic, thats my vote at least

  5. Love the colors and sword cutting through the couple. I definitely see the romance perspective with the suggestion of suspense. But, I think it needs the paranormal element. Like maybe light shining off the sword or stars in the distance.

  6. Fun poll. Great cover. I was torn btwn historical and futuristic. The sword says historical but, to me, the colors and composition say futuristic, so that was my vote. Looking forward to reading more about this cover on Thursday.
