I was poking around some old threads at Absolute Write this evening, and came across this on a thread about PublishAmerica’s lousy, and sometimes reused cover art. Basically, it uses stock photos, but then has someone spend a minute or two doing cropping, resizing, and maybe adding a filter, plus the title and author’s name. I’m horrible at using Photoshop, but even I can manage something in that league with a few keystrokes and clicks.
Some of them are hilarious, especially the one for the poor woman who wrote a book about the reasons why people feel so tired all the time. It had the word “crap” in the title, so PA selected a photo of a roll of toilet paper.
Then this caught my eye, about halfway down the page.
Sounds familiar, eh? It’s the same title that Nickypoo announced he’s going to be using. I can just imagine our favorite greasy gothy midget tracking down poor Mr. Bailey, and sending the guy a barrage of email threats to sic an e-lawyer on him for “raping my copyrights,” or some such nonsense, even though a title can’t be copyrighted.
