or talking to others in the book community.
When they all start looking the same.

It's getting harder and harder to distinguish books from each other because their covers are so similar these days.
First up is the men's items. Like the tie, cuff links, keys, etc.
Take a look....
I guess these work for the peeps that want to read the hot and steamy books without people knowing they are reading them. But as much as these cover are being used, they're not fooling anyone.
I can't but help that these overs are trending because they are cheaper. You don't have to pay a tie but you do have to pay a cover model. Sure there's still the photographer to pay but you've cut down the cost by eliminating the models.
Sylvia Day's Bared to You received a new cover. Take a look at the previous cover....
Did they change it to make it "saver" for bookshelves or to make the trend? I personally like the 1st cover because there is no doubt in my mind that this book will have hot sex scenes. But then again I'm a perv and like the fleshier covers. LOL
Next up is the trend of using sweet couples and slapping the same fonts and title blocks over them for the covers.
Exhibits A, B and C.....
I know. I know. You should not judge a book by it's cover. But looking at these similar covers I can't help but wonder if the stories under them are just as similar.
Now to be fair, with so many books out there and only so much stock photos and font types there are going to be similar covers.
What do you think of the cover trends of late?
Is it a true trend or cheaper printing cost?
