Let's start with legs . . . I have no idea what all these legs have to do with stories of romance and self-realization.
And what about backs? Why are the characters walking away from the reader as though they are saying goodbye?
Next up - what's with all the decapitation? Off with her head!
Even the men are headless.
And now for the shadows . . . makes me wonder what writers of women's fiction are trying to hide.
Of course, we could do away with the character sketches all together and just have pictures of clothing. That seems popular.
Here are some covers I like,even though I have no idea what they have to do with the book. They're quirky and caught my attention. (And yes, I know the last one is headless!)
So - let's kick off those shoes, turn around, show those faces, and come out of the shadows. After all, Women's Fiction and Chick Lit have nothing to hide!
