It's a post about book covers. I didn't initially like mine when I first saw it. This guy doesn't depict Derrick at all. But, after a time, I grew to like it, then even love it.
Imagine my surprise when, after I posted it on my author page on Facebook, another author told me we had the same cover guy.
I didn't realize we had the same picture. Hers is on the right, but otherwise it's the same guy, same pose. Her background is light.
I think I might have the same guy on my debut book, Wild Horses, as my friend Sara Walter Ellwood does on her western, Gambling on a Secret. But it's not identical, like the cover of Shot is with the other author's.
So, here's the question. Is your cover model(s) on another author's cover? Do you care?
