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:
