Can You Judge A Book’s Genre By Its Cover?

I received my final cover art for my debut novel, CAPTIVE, due to be released electronically and in print by Grand Central publishing’s digital imprint, Forever Yours in April 2013. Yay! I love how the color scheme pops on the screen!

I don’t want to say much more about the cover art because I thought we’d have a little fun on Attacking The Page. Can you tell by the cover alone what genre this book is? Obviously by the sexy couple you’d know it’s a romance novel, but what romance sub-genre would you expect to read? (Hey, no peeking at my bio for hints.)

Here is my cover. Click on the image for a larger view.

Here is the poll – It’s my first poll, so I hope it works:

Poll closes at 9:00 pm EST on Wednesday 10/24/12. Don’t forget to visit again on Thursday to see if you guessed correctly. 🙂

As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section!

Hot Trends: Steam Punk

Steam punk is a speculative blend of history and science fiction that offers an alternate reality.  At least that’s what I think it is.  I admit I’ve only read one book in this entire genre:  Soulless by Gail Carriger, which is a light steam punk romance written with a bit of humor.  I enjoyed Soulless and am looking for more.

Does anyone have a better description of Steam Punk? What do you love/hate about the genre?  Which Steam Punk authors are your favorites?  Do you have any recommendations for a newbie?  Authors, feel free to shamelessly self-promote!

Just for fun, here’s an awesome video from Carina Press.
