So I was looking at the winners of Cover Contest 2007 (here) - and I really shouldn't have clicked the link to Two Image Cover winners.

Oh. My. God.


It was like going back to highschool and seeing all those het romance novels in the local private library.The guy always seems to have his chest exposed - or happens to be wearing regency clothing? And it's always a) On a bed or b) Embrace from behind/front or c) Walking towards each other with 'fuck me' eyes *laughs hysterically*

My sides. They hurt XD

Oh and side note, when I see a cover with a topless male, I get excited thinking it's a m/m novel - unfortunately, naked males = het romance? Or Sherrilyn Kenyon and other authors who know what really makes a girl look >_> Still, IMO naked people seem like a cop out for a book cover, 99% of the time

If you could get an artist to make a m/m book cover, what would it look like? I was thinking of maderr's fic, Main Gauche when I thought of this and what came to mind was the tournament where Tan and Dagger are duelling *_* No need for fuck me eyes or naked chests - seeing the fight in color would have me pulling out my wallet in the next few minutes XD

What about y'all?
