    I would love it if, after all this razzing on the cover, someone would read the book and tell us if you really CAN judge a book by its cover.

    Cause you probably can.

    With all the collective genius of the Bitchery it’s a wonder no one’s called on us to come up with a workable health care plan for this country.

    Well done, winners!

    Awesome captions.  Now could someone explain to me why the publishers bother with these horrid, horrid photoshopped covers?  It seriously cannot be cheaper or more sales-inducing than a simple cover with, like, a flower or a hard hat (heh) or a lipstick print or cartoon or SOMETHING.  And if it turns out these horrid, horrid covers do generate more sales?  I will . . . I . . . well, I don’t know what I’d do to learn we live in a world where people think these covers are good.

    Seriously, WHY?  Who looks at these covers and thinks “Yeah, that’s what we want, this looks good”???  Gah.

    best note I got: “they were obviously keen to find something to really illustrate your title. It is the most oddly logical romance cover I’ve ever seen.”

    And remember. At least it’s not a poser cover.

    It’s the lack of nipples that really squick me out.  Was it some kind of kinky industrial accident? Was he made in a test tube? I DEMAND an answer.

    ps.  thanks for the nod SB Sarah. Made my day.
