How does an author choose her cover?

How does an author choose her cover?

Well, that was a dilemma for author Jane Beckenham just recently when her cover art editor sent her several possibilities. For Jane it had to 'click' just right. To tweak her where a love story must tweak.

So how did she choose the cover for her upcoming holiday release TO KISS AN ANGEL? She turned over the covers to her 18 year old daughter... whose comment was... Va va voom I like this one, can you print it out, in color, so I can put it on my wall.

Jane realised then, she had a winner.
(Eve Summers agrees!!!)

By Jane Beckenham

Angel has a job to do - leave heaven and fix Clark Lannigan's life, teaching him to live again, and to love. But how can she succeed when Clark is living in the past, a life surrounded by so much guilt that he's too afraid to let go. Besides, she's already broken Angel rule 750.2, paragraph A, no canoodling with the client. Plus she's fallen in love with him.

So what does an angel do? She sets him ten tasks, but neither of them want to obey number ten....NO KISSING.
