Cover Debut: More Than This


Now only do I LOVE it but the art department wizards at Touchstone whipped it out super fast. Like I said to my wonderful editor and friend Sulay Hernandez, I feel like I should dress in head-to-toe Anthropologie so I can live up to the cover.

Curious to know what More Than This is all about? Here's a rough of the back cover copy:

Sometimes what we have is not enough...

He doesn’t know his name and he doesn’t know hers, but they do know they’re perfect for each other. For Alexander Velazquez and Evelyn Sinclair it’s love at first sight but they are too caught up in proving themselves at work and to their families to take a chance on the stranger they happened to lock eyes with through a train window.

Alexander, an ambitious lawyer from a working-class neighborhood, and Evelyn Sinclair, a daughter of privilege trying to make it on her own, want to find meaning in their lives while looking in wrong directions. A series of missed connections bring them tantalizing close meeting, but something or someone always seems to get in the way. As they watch each other through their office windows, all they can do is wonder about what might happen if they took a chance on the stranger across the street.
Coming August 2008 from Touchstone Books

Fantastic. Reminds me of the song "When a man loves a woman" by Bryan Adams.

Margo Candela said...

BP: I know! And for those of you who don't...

Do you really love a woman?
to understand her, you gotta know her deep inside
her every thought, see every dream
and give her wings if she wants to fly
nd when you find yourself lying helpless in her arms
you know you really love a woman

[chorus 1]
When you love a woman
and tell her that shes really wanted
when you love a woman then tell her that shes the one
Because she needs somebody, to tell her that its gonna last forever
so tell me have you ever really, really ever loved a woman

To really love a woman, let her hold you
till you kno she needs to be touched
you gotta breathe her, you gotta taster her
till you can feel her in your blood
when you can see her unborn children, in her eyes
you know you really love a woman

[chorus 2]
When you love a woman
and tell her that shes really wanted
when you love a woman then tell her that shes the one
Because she needs somebody, to tell her that youll always be together
so tell me have you ever really, really ever loved a woman

Oh you've got to give some faith, hold her tight
a little tenderness, you gotta treat her right
she will be there when you take good care her
ohh you gotta love your woman yeah


And when you find yourself lyting helpless in her arms
you know you really love a woman

[chorus 1]

Just tell me have you really, really every loved a woman
Ohh just tell me have you ever really really ever loved...
