The Back is the New Black in Book Covers

Since my debut novel releases in February 2015, I’ve been paying attention to and celebrating cover reveals for the 2014 debuts and the 2015 titles on deck. For a while, faces and eyes dominated covers, and we’ve seen a slew of girls in frilly dresses and submerged fully or partially in water. Now, designers seem to be loving the back. Take a look at the examples below and see if you’ll back me up on this. These are not all debuts, but they will all be released in 2014 and 2015–you know, back to back years.

Am I right or what? Have you got my back on this?

Well, not to be left out, my debut novel’s cover is all about the back and black.


I haven’t been this trendy since I rocked really big hair back in the day.

Anybody else have a sexy back cover?
