Love in the Muck
Anybody else think that this is a particularly useless image?
Clearly it's from Amazon from the obnoxious orange arrow. I found it while scrolling through various recommendations. That black circle is, um, not so appealing, no? Or is it green?
OK, so the lady's wearing green and there's a present. Yeah. It's a Christmas Anthology.
I went to all four author's websites to see if the black/green/pondsludge circle scanned any better for them.
On Edith Layton's website I found this.
Not sure what all that proves, or if there's a point to this post at all.
Except that I was drawn into researching the websites of the authors of a book I had never heard of because the Amazon scan was so ugly.
(Nancy and Gayle, I tried to find a website for you, m'dears, but NAL was the best I could do.)
So does this mean that ugly attracts attention? Because I surely wasn't looking for a Christmas anthology. Uh uh. And I wasn't even looking for a Regency romance, come to think of it. I was looking for an audio edition of an abridged version of The Three Musketeers for my son. And then that blackish green smudge just drew my attention away.
So easily distracted these days.
