I Dream of Far Away Places and Cultures – Like millions of romance readers, I’m also a culture junkie. I dream of visiting the far-away places on those hypnotic novel covers, and I can’t look at the models themselves without wondering, Who is that? Like our mothers and grandmothers, and the millions of women who’ve read E.M. Hull’s infamous novel, The Sheik, I want to learn more about the places on romance novel covers, as well as the intriguing visual icons that grace them. What are the cover models’ favorite hangouts, hobbies, and interests?
What’s My Travel Plan? – Artists, authors, readers and culture warriors, come travel with me as I talk with cover models, designers and illustrators, photographers and romance authors. Enjoy exploring the myriad ways your favorite authors connect cover art to story and cultural settings and how covers–and cover models–add visual appeal to romance novels.
Romance Global Bound is my way of sharing my love for cover art and global culture. As your travel guide, here’s my travel plan:
- Talk about romantic settings and cultures
- Interview authors about their cover design choices
- Bring the lives of your favorite cover models into exciting focus
