What’s in a Book Cover? The Evolution of Time Enough to Love

As I’m spotlighting Time Enough to Love this month, I though you might like to see the evolution of the book covers for this novel.

When it was first published in 2014, I wanted a very medieval looking cover, both for the different novellas (Betrothal, Betrayal, and Beleaguered) as well as the complete volume. So my wonderful cover designer, Danielle Fine, gave me exactly what I wanted.

The covers for the three components were very similar in style, and the Betrothal cover is still one of my favorite covers I’ve ever had.


Around the end of 2015, my friends and my virtual assistant persuaded me that I needed to change these covers, as they were rather dated. I was resistent, and didn’t really have the money to change all the covers, so I setteled on changing the cover to the e-book version of Time Enough to Love. This very updated, sexy version was designed by Renee Rocco.


And finally, on the 10th anniversary of my beginning to write Time Enough to Love, I finally had all the covers updated. Danielle Fine once again did a fabulous job and brought all of the books into the present, while still preserving the medieval feel.


So that is the evolution of the covers and reasoning behind the changes of the Time Enough to Love visuals. I hope you’ve enjoyed this little stroll down memory lane as much as I have!

Time Enough to Love is available in e-book and print formats on Amazon, and in e-book also on B & NKobo, and Apple.
