At first, I thought I was looking at a foreign version of The Red Tree. It took me a moment to realize that was a different book.

Wow.

We've sunk so far that books and covers are interchnageable.

Weird, huh? At least the model's got her jacket on properly in yours. And the whole thing probably does suit the Rachel Caine book more (though I've never read it).

Probably. I don't write that crap.

...

I guess the artist sold a series of covers, and they're spreading them out across the world...

I've written my editor to find out if this was done with Penguin's permission.

Your book has a sinister half sibling out there. Too weird.

at least she's wearing her jacket and is less pouty on the red tree.

it's pretty damn cheesy to tweak and reuse the image, though i think it reflects poorly on the other novel, not the red tree which was published first!

It was a shitty, inappropriate cover to begin with. That it's reused, and so not even my shitty inappropriate cover is insult to injury.

Weird...I was thinking it was 2 different stock art images of the same girl, but it's the same moon and house too.

It's just sad and shoddy.

This is a novel nominated for the World Fantasy Award receiving this treatment.

Damning with faint praise, but, yours has much better fonts.

Well, mine has a cheesy Romance font. The other has a cheese Horror font. I guess it depends whether you prefer Kraft slices or Velveeta.

I've never heard of this writer and know I know why. Reading the Amazon reviews were hilarious "How cool, the vampires act bad." "It's so cool this is set at a university, not high school." Like OMG.

I can see why someone who reads this drivel would feel great bewilderment over your writing.

I really can't. Not beyond, "You get what we give you."

Pretty sure it's a Romanian edition.

Sorry to repeat like a myna bird but; I thought it was The Red Tree in another language at first too. Why would they recycle art like that? and how can it be completely legal? ...? That would be so confusing running across two totally different books with virtually the same cover art. How odd that anyone would want that. Yet, it looks deliberate, how could it not be?

And it seems like the other book is a nothing piece of fluff for people loving the watered down vampire craze. ice.
