Another of my mother’s favorite sayings was “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”
So take a look at the new backlist reissue of Laura Kinsale’s Uncertain Magic for Kindle. Then take a look at the cover for the (I assume) original paperback. Am I just flattering myself by seeing something there that’s not? And of course it might genuinely just be coincidence, but it seems naked male chests and naked female backs are the “in” romance covers these days, and the Uncertain Magic Kindle cover isn’t either of those, is it?
It’s also a shame. I’d be one of those who would purchase several of her backlist books for my Kindle, but not so long as these dinosaurs in publishing keep thinking they can support their paper book business by overcharging for ebooks.
