Similar Covers: Red Dress, Red Shoes

I’ve got lots of foreign covers for you this week, but otherwise these six are depressingly similar...



They are:
I can’t say I like any of these covers—the only one that vaguely appeals is the third one, but I wouldn’t be drawn to pick any of them up. What do you think?

  1. I like the 3rd or 5th one, but I still wouldn't pick any of these up.

  2. They are depressingly boring!

  3. Not thrilled with these covers but bottom middle (sim to top left) would be my pick.

  4. Yea, none of these really work for me. It does make me wonder if the woman gets paid for each time her legs are used? hehe

  5. These covers don't do much for me. It's hard to believe better covers couldn't be found for 6 books! I guess the bottom middle or top right covers I like best!

  6. They are all so similar. You'd think you could crop it a few different ways.

  7. The only one that really catches my eye is the one on the top right. The colors seem richer, somehow. The rest? Meh.

  8. How on earth do you find all these similar or same covers? Find a cover which attracts you and then ask Google to find similar ones? But there seem so many which look remarkably alike! I have spotted some over the years, but never this many.

  9. I like red, and red shoes, but there is nothing appealing about those covers.

  10. I've noticed this one around a lot, too, and every time I'm not sure whether I'm seeing the same book again or a new one. Ugh!
    I don't remember if you've already mentioned it, but Confessions Of A First Daughter by Cassidy Calloway also has a very comment cover that I have seen on at least three books (and a little similar to this one).

  11. Wow, 6 books using the same cover photo! I like the 5th one best, but none of them would really catch my eye in a bookstore.

  12. As the publishing industry changes, publishers are looking more and more to stock photos (probably with no royalties attached) for their covers. That's how that happens. The photo company doesn't care how many publishers buy the photo. It's all very sad and upsetting to us mid-list writers :(

    I haven't seen my cover anywhere, though. Yet. (I'm also with Random House)
