A Red Hot Mess by Kimberly Van Meter

What's the genre? What's the logline? What is it you like or don't like about this cover? Does it make you want to know more about the book? Does it make you want to BUY the book? Discuss.


  1. Looks steamy! I would at least read the summary! :-)

  2. Romanyce. Cheesy looking to me. I wouldn't give it a second glance, I'm afriad.

  3. I'd say contemporary romance, but it also has a relationship self-help look about it. I'm not much of a romance reader, myself, but if I were, I'd read the blurb.

  4. Romance or maybe mild erotica? I'm not the target demographic for this one, but it looks like a nice, fun cover. :-)

  5. (Eric -)
    I must say that I am not the target audience for this.

    It looks like a romantic comedy, based on the title and image.

    The only problem I have with the cover is that it has way, way too much small text on it. There are quotes and all sorts of other little thing which are fine for an old fashion printed cover, but doesn’t work with thumbnail.

    When I enlarged the image I could finally read the sunburst in the upper right hand corner saying “Short and Sassy” (is this only a short story?)

    I would say lose the quotes and make the other text bigger.
