Gini Koch's ALIEN TANGO Cover

Alien TangoFeast your eyes on the gorgeous cover for ALIEN TANGO, the sequel to Gini Koch's TOUCHED BY AN ALIEN. While technically this is the cover of a science fiction novel, since the author writes stories squarely in science fiction romance territory, it still raises the bar for SFR covers everywhere.

The cover work is by Dos Santos, who also did the illustration for TOUCHED BY AN ALIEN. Click here to see the original illustration of ALIEN TANGO on Mr. Dos Santos' site.

I'm pretty ga-ga over this cover given the great balance between heat and tech. The stories are humorous SFR, which explains the Douglas Adams-inspired elements. But are the romantic elements enough to draw romance readers who will venture over to the SF aisle? What are your thoughts?

Also, I'm passing along news from Gini Koch regarding a few book signings she has scheduled:

Monday, June 28

Says Gini:

"Would love to see you at one or both! If you have books I haven't signed
yet, bring 'em along!


And remember, Gini Koch's ALIEN TANGO releases December 7, 2010.

Joyfully yours,
