yikes and a big WTF!

okay, i just found my worst cover. i've never seen it online before, but a customer added it to amazon. this was done with...what is it called if it's just artwork the publisher has lying around? haha. i had to share this.
horrendous and a big WTF.

Wow, it probably fit right into the time it was pubbed. =D Do you still have this book at home?

anne said...

kelly, yes i still have it.

it looked weird even at the time. :D because both images were photos. you never saw that on covers unless it was porn. :D

Interesting. Clearly they were going for some effect. . .
How did it sell?

anne frasier said...

betina, it bombed.

it was an orphaned book and had zero publisher backing.

I don't think it even had a cover budget, which is why they had to use stock photos.

looking back, i can't understand why i stuck with bantam for four books. insane of me.
