The Mysterious Miss X
I couldn't resist discussing the similarity of these book covers to my own. This is typically what could happen (fellow authors have reported their variations) when you rely on purchasing a cover for your precious writing. It is not always what it seems.
When I purchased my cover from SelfPubBookCovers, I expected that my professionally designed cover would be one-of-a-kind. Technically, of course, they ARE different, but it is not what an author wants to see. Bad enough that our work can easily be pirated these days with little recourse to small-time writers who cannot afford to pursue copyright infringement.
At least with these four books, the stories within are entirely different. I'm sure had the author's known of the others, we would have made different selections. But now I am wondering how many more of Miss X are out there. So, if you find one, let me know and I'll add it to my collection. In the meantime, I've changed my cover.
