That doesn’t LOOK like Chocolate.

I thought about hosting a caption this cover contest for this one, because the captions are so… obvious. But the more I thought about it, the more nauseated I got, so I'll caption this one for you: 


But why stop there? Have a few more oddities from the world of cover art: 


Book Cover

Apparently a wife's fantasy involves internal exams from a 50' man. Not my fantasy, but hey, I won't judge. 


Book Cover


A truly excellent psudonym. At least, I hope that's a pseudonym. 


And which would you like better: Wild Nights with Her Wicked Boss

Book Cover


or Seven Wharves?


Book Cover


According to one of the reviews, the wharves are “the various dwarf behaviors (being sneezy, grumpy, happy, etc) based on the current wharf she's hiding out on.”

Of course they are.

    Can I caption the first one anyway? Please? K, thanks.

    “When Stella’s best friend and roommate David mentioned Hot Carl she thought he meant the hunky fireman next door. She was wrong.”

    Glad I got that out of my system.

    I think anyone who’s raised children through the toddler stage will recoil in horror from cover 1. The rest speak for themselves.

    Is it just me, or does the prone women in ‘A Wife’s Fantasy’ have three legs?

    Goodness me, so she does! 

    That first cover is just so, so very wrong.

    The toddler stage. Yikes!
    I remember it well. We used to call it diaper art.

    First cover: gross and last two covers, umm, they look like copies of one another…is cover plagiarizing allowed? V.A. Gyna? Seriously? Why not use Virginia, at least that’s a suitable name.

    The leg all the way on the left is the 50’ Man’s other arm.

    Looks like the 50 foot man likes 50 pound women.

    And the VA Gyna one? Terrible photoshop. What happened to that poor woman’s back? She looks like Snakewoman.

    No, there are two arms and three legs.

    I think there are some random extra bits. I can’t even process what some of that is. It reminds me of that photoshop fail blog.

    No, I think you’re just seeing the 50 foot headless dude’s other arm.

    I can’t look at the VA Gyna cover without laughing hysterically…. And I have done so repeatedly by now.

    VA Gyna’s breasts are different – to go with her snakey back. Even the nippes are different colors!

    I’ll steer clear of the first cover.  As for “Snowy and the Seven Wharves,” how important are wharves to the story that there have to be different emotions/behaviors (seven) based on the wharf she’s hiding on?  Does she have a multiple-personality disorder that’s somehow tied to wharves?  If she knows it keeps happening, shouldn’t she find someplace/ANYplace else to hide?  Or is this just an author trying way, way, WAY too hard to force the plot of a book to match a “clever” title?

    … and there is something seriously wonky about Snakewoman’s right breast. Unless that’s just a phantom breast that has turned UP for the party.

    I think I’ve given more thought to my book covers than these authors have given to their entire novels.

    I am almost tempted to read V A Gyna’s book, because damn. That is one hell of pen name.

    The rest? Eeesh.
