Book Cover Dilemma

In this digital age, we’re probably going to see a lot more of this phenomenon: Books with the same stock cover photo.

In the first set, the books were published a mere 2 months apart.
Heroes Live Forever    vs    Rowena Through the Wall


These were published almost a year apart.
Taking Love in Stride    vs    Revenge for Hire

Have you spotted any “twin” books lately? Here’s hoping mine is an original. 🙂

    yikes… that is astonishing. Not in a good way. Yours will be original… how can it not be? No stock photos for you! real art!

    Nice blog btw. I’m embarrassed that mine is so …. so, neglected. lol. I think you are doing fabulous! Keep it up – you’re inspiring. 🙂

    • Aw, thanks. We’ve discussed ideas for what to do in the case of self publishing. I think Joe made a contact at Megacon who might design some other artwork from the story if we decide to go this way. I’m interested in seeing what the editor might come up with. He’s got a really good book cover artist.

      Don’t be embarrassed; you’re extremely busy. How’s life going for you btw?

      I love WordPress’ schedule feature. I can use it for days when I’m chatty cathy and have tons of things I want to post about. This will come in handy when I’ll be drugged up after dental surgery next week. 😀

    That’s hilarious! Unless you’re taking your own pics of your Fabio look-alike, you have a good chance of a twin out there.
