No, it's not necessary until you fair play like you are ;-)

This slot has some truly gorgeous covers.

The straight romance covers are your way to check if we're paying attention? XD

I haven't read all the books, but I suppose some Bisexual/Transgender are more "straight" than "gay"

Seeing a seemingly het cover it did cross my mind that it might be for a trans romance, but without reading it I guess there's no way anybody can tell the difference.

I hope I didn't come across as disrespectful to you or to the subject, I was just joking about a seemingly straight romance cover found in a LGBT romance cover contest.

Absolutely not, also I wondered about some covers, but since they were submitted or released as LGBT, I included them even if I didn't read the book

Voted. But oh my, so many interesting covers which I now have to check out and then I'll want them and then I'll buy them and my TBR pile will grow and grow and grow! So many books, so little time! ;)

Elisa, are we supposed to comment each time we vote or just on that first post?
elisa_rolle
May. 9th, 2011 07:39 am (UTC)
Don't worry leaving a comment, it was more or less a caution I thought to adopt, but it was not really manageable. For now I don't see "odd" movements, so that is fine, you can simply vote on the poll.

I admire many of these artists, and the models they use for their art.

the name of the models is still, mostly, unknown, but there are some that are really hot or pretty ;-)
