This is a great article with an interesting look at a highly competitive industry. About mid-way through, the author has inserted a fascinating section entitled "The Journey to a Romance Cover," which includes a photograph of Baca in his original pose alongside three different cover mock-ups from which the publisher selected the final cover for Susan Stoker's Saved by a SEAL. The four photos are accompanied by a brief narrative explaining the decision-making process. Who knew that there was so much hard work and strategical planning involved in designing a single paperback cover?
