It seems to me there's kind of a same-ness to a lot of them -- dark lighting, a kind of not-quite-soft-focus, a woman in some manner of skimpy, tight-fitting clothing, minus her head or left half or her body or legs below mid-thigh. And with so many of them on the shelves these days, I wonder whether that approach has lost its effectiveness. As I said over on the Juno Books post, those covers tell me quite efficiently what kind of book I'm looking at . . . but it's been a long time since I saw one that really caught my eye. They all start to look alike after a while.
How do you all feel about them? Do you like the style, or wish they'd move on to a new fad? Are there particular sub-sets of the approach you don't like (frex butt shots)? What authors (or more to the point, what publishers) have something different on their covers?
