Tweaked on the Cover for Patty’s Gamble

I wanted something to match what I did for Mitch’s Win with the format of someone up front and someone further back.  Then I wanted to put them on a ranch since these feature ranchers in Montana.  I then decided I’d use the same type of border to give the title of the book and have my name at the top of the cover.  I couldn’t move the woman in Patty’s Gamble further down because she has a modern-looking extension in her hair at the top of her head, and this is a historical book. 

So here’s the tweaking I did today:

  1. I like what you’ve done on the covers for this series!

    I’m loving it much better…. I love the addition of the flower and rings….it gives it a little more insight to what the story will be about I think… Great Job!!!

    • Thanks! I like this one better, too. The rings are there because she traps him into a marriage. It might be due to some kind of auction (which I’d love to do). I like the idea of her purchasing him and marrying him due to the threat he’d lose his ranch. Maybe he inherits it from his dead brother who ran up a lot of debt, and the only way he gets to keep it is to have her father buy it…and she comes with it. Now that’s an idea! I think I’ll go with that for a plot instead of having her father force him with a shotgun like in the original, The Keeping of Greg Wilson. 😀
