What They Said

Reading The Rap Sheet’s latest post doesn’t quite make me want to slit my wrists in protest, but you kind of have to wonder if just a leetle bit of due diligence on the production design team at the publishing house’s part would have helped a tad.

Although I would like to hear the other side of the story with regards to cover image choice. Are there only a select number of stock images to choose from? Is it a matter of tight deadline crunches and too many committees? Because it’s kind of like titles: they may not be copyrighted per se, but once an image has been slapped on one book’s cover, the next one almost always suffers by comparison.
