I have a stitch in my side after researching this post.
I am obsessed with covers, possibly because I have had so many bad ones foisted on me by publishers through my life. Luckily now that I have Jen Talty at CoolGus producing such brilliant designs for my backlist I can see the funny side these days – well, almost.
But none of my bad covers in the past matched these.
In some cases it’s the misguided concept for the cover or title. In others it’s the idea for the entire book that’s off. I don’t think any of these covers (except the weird one) were meant to be funny. But I just loved them. I hope you do, too.
Oh, and they’re all real books (because there are some kidders out there.)
If you want, click on the picture and it will take you to Amazon or whatever selling point they use. So if you want one for your library, knock yourself out:
If you enjoy my blog, why not sign up for the monthly newsletter?
Last month my subscribers had the chance to get a FREE copy of my latest release WARBABY. (It’s the only offer of any kind I’m making on that book.) You’ll get news of all latest releases and next month there’s the chance to win a copy of ISTANBUL available to SUBSCRIBERS ONLY. There’s no spamming guys – all you’ll get is one newsletter, once a month.
And here’s the cover for my latest release, WARBABY.
I’m pretty sure with CoolGus designing the covers I won’t end up on any list like this.
