Cover Love: Losing It by Cora Carmack

cover love-01

One thing I find really interesting with some covers is how authors or publishers can change them so minutely that I wonder what the point of changing them actually was. Take this initial cover for Cora Carmack’s Losing it, for example:

Losing It one

Since this book is about the main character losing her virginity, this cover is crazy! I mean, could it GET more suggestive? I have to say that I really like it — even if the pictures don’t totally match together. For me, I think I would’ve liked the backgrounds for both characters to be somewhat similar, like they were in the same room.

But I digress! This isn’t what this Cover Love is about. Let’s take a look at the next cover made for this book:Β 

Losing It two

This one is different from the first — a bit more polished with a more eye-catching title. I like how the backgrounds seem to blend together, but it feels kind of weird not seeing the guy on the front. Well, we see the guy, but not his face. I do like this cover, but wonder why it was changed so little from the first. I mean, if you’re going to make a change, make a CHANGE!

Which leads me into the next cover …

Losing It three 1

Now we have colour changes and a new guy! The title font stays the same, but the author is now with first-letter capitalization. And there’s no author quote on the cover — but there’s a tagline now! Still, when comparing all three of these covers, there not all that different from one another. I have a hard time picking which one I like the best just because of this. There are little things I like about each cover, but I just can’t settle on one.

Which one of these covers do you like best? What do you think of very small cover changes? Worth it or not worth it?

  1. The backgrounds match the best in the third one. I actually dislike the second one because you can’t see the guys face, which, combined with the subject, makes me feel like it doesn’t matter who her first time is with. Does that make sense?

  2. I kind of like the third one best, it just looks better put together design wise. And the fact that the guy is looking down adoringly is good too πŸ™‚
