I hope it's humor. It did make me kind of chuckle. Not sure if it's the best for getting people to click on it but I rather like it.
Is that a guy on the bed? I took it for an over-weight woman at first. Why isn't she strangling him is my next reaction.
The graphics I think are strong. I had no problem seeing the over-weight woman on the bed and the wife walking in and choking the husband. I would normally be against so much text on the cover. The title just seems to go on forever. However, I think that it might work with this book.
I like the cover as a graphic. I'm not sure I like the premise of the novel, but that has little to do with the cover's merits. It's a very strong, bold cover. I honestly don't know about the genre. It could be humor, it could be S&M...
Thank you Eric and Robin! I was happy to see the words *bold* and *strong* used for describing the cover!It's not S&M. The humor kicks in with the revenge once the affairs are discovered. There are many tales.JR Tomlin...that is an over weight woman on the bed. And the wife is strangling her husband for messing with the gross woman on the bed. I'm glad it made you chuckle!Thanks you guys!!
Okay, whoa, whoa....Overweight = "gross"? Really? Wow.
Robin...Really? That's what you got out of that because I can't find where I said those 2 words in the same sentence. Wow.The gross woman on the bed is gross because she's a mistress. The husband is being choked by his wife because he cheated on his wife...with someone else. That's gross to me. I thought the cover art portrayed that pretty well.I guess I should have said, "And the wife is strangling her gross husband for messing with the gross woman on the bed."When 2 people willingly destroy a relationship because of infidelity, and blindsides a spouse, that makes them gross. In my opinion, of course.
@Ima, words are important as you know. One sentence, "overweight woman on the bed." Next sentence, "messing with the gross woman on the bed." Since you specifically stated overweight woman on the bed, directly followed by gross woman on the bed, to me it was a simple and direct correlation. Overweight gross woman on the bed. Nuff said.
No, not enough said, not by me anyways. If you read this part, I was answering her question....it clearly shows that in my response since it is directed to her."J. R. Tomlin said...Is that a guy on the bed? I took it for an over-weight woman at first.

I would guess it's humor/chick-lit, but it does seem a bit masculine.
