romanceclasscovers: Romance-y covers for our books

April 10, 2016 - - No comments


If you write romance with Filipino/Asian characters and prefer photo covers for your books, you know what a struggle it is finding the right cover for your book if you only looked at stock photo sites. There just aren’t enough cover-worthy romance stock photos with Filipinos (or Asians even), or at least not enough for all the stories we’ve been writing.

I’ve tried to find a solution for this by collaborating with Filipino style bloggers (and I have with several books!). Now we’ve taken a greater leap and launched something new:

#romanceclasscovers is a catalogue of photos for sale, for use on fiction book covers (and their related marketing materials), hopefully providing us more options if we write books with Filipino/Asian characters. The first set featuring models Katrice Kierulf and Migs Almendras is up now. You’ll be able to purchase photos via Paypal and other payment methods, and the photos are priced depending on use. You can also ask to sponsor a shoot for more perks and to get the look you want.

Anyone can purchase photos from the project! Not just #romanceclass authors. I mean, if the photo fits, definitely go buy it!

I love how each photo comes with creative cropping and edit suggestions.

This is a collab project with photographer Pach Urrea. Also in the team is stylist Alex Lapa. Add romanceclasscovers to your Instagram so you get to see new photo sets as they come.
