...And Then This Happened
Twitter is where I spend waaaaay too much of my time. Recently, Rose Lerner noticed that on Booklikes, the cover for Cecilia Grant’s A Gentleman Undone had suddenly been replaced by that of a scholarly work on medieval history. I thought this was hilarious and then Rose suggested a meme, and we were off to the races.
Rose Lerner (I don't think anyone can beat what she did for In For a Penny).

[transcript of screencapped twitter convo:
Jackie Barbosa (@jackiebarbosa): Well, it certainly doesn't look like anything anyone would be embarrassed to read on the subway!
Cecilia Grant (@Cecilia_Grant): Maybe this will be the next trend in erotic romance covers! The scholarly look!
Isobel Carr (@IsobelCarr): So tempted. May need to make a scholarly book cover for my site.
Jackie Barbosa (@jackiebarbosa): I know. I was thinking of trying it on something, just for funsies.
Rose Lerner (@RoseLerner): Let's start a meme!
Isobel Carr (@IsobelCarr): I suck at using GIMP, but I'm game to try.]
Here's mine. I seem to have gone in a different direction than everyone else, as I also retitled the book in an appropriately stuffy manner. And I do suck at GIMP, so I went totally old skool and did it in PAINT!
Inspiration: Marriage Law Practice in the Long Eighteenth Century by Rebecca Probert (a very pricy book I now REALLY want to read).
