  1. I'd go with step class. *shakes head* Some of the book covers out there are beyond attrocious. Icky!

  2. JenB says:

    “Lie down. Right th-…no…okay, yes, right there. Perfect.

    Aaaaand STEP two three four STEP two three four ARMS UP two three four. Now walk in place.”

  3. Tam says:

    Yeah, that's weird. Definitely step class. Why is his head so weirdly cropped? I think originally he was standing upright and they just cut him out and laid him down. It probably is some chick doing aerobics.

  4. nichem says:

    I'd say step class. She's even got the little exercise wrist band thingies on.

    It looks like two different pics they photoshopped together. Odd.

  5. Kris says:

    Bridget: I know, right. Oddness abounds with book covers.

    JenB: “Now walk in place.” two three four LOL

    Tam: Looking at it again I think the guy might have been leaning against something… and, ow, now my neck's cricked from trying to work out what the hell he's doing.

    Richelle: Well, the blurb does say she is a karate expert so she could be wearing the wrist thingys for that reason… or she could just be channeling a hip hoppee.

    (BTW, just because you comment doesn't mean you'll be forgiven either.)

  6. Sean Kennedy says:

    You'd want him to not be breathing or else your balance would be shot as you ascended and descended.

  7. Tam says:

    Experience speaks Sean?

  8. Kris says:

    Well, Sean. Do you have experience ridi-err, I mean ascending and descending??

  9. Lily says:

    Definitely step.

    LOL, love his expression. He looks a bit scared, maybe he doesn't like being trampled on.

  10. Kris says:

    Lily: Well, he should get used to being ground under the heel of a woman. Either that or become bi-curious. 😉

  11. Tracy says:

    Definitely step class. Or step-ford class – not sure which one.

    Why is he not even looking at her? I mean, if she's gonna break his sternum he should at least look at her, don't ya think?

  12. Kris says:

    Can't be stepford. She's not wearing pink. LOL.

    I think it's more of a stoic 'fuck, not this again' expression or it could be that he's about to barf and is trying to hold it in.

  13. K. Z. Snow says:

    That is one of the lamest damn covers I've ever seen.

  14. Tracy says:

    Can't be stepford. She's not wearing pink.
    Oh, true – I missed that, sorry.

    I think we'll go with the barfing. I like it.

    KZ – you are so correct on that one!

  15. Ingrid says:

    It looks step class to me as well. Although I can safely say I have never taken one.

  16. Kris says:

    K Z: Word.

    Tracy: Barfing it is, plus totally believable if you had someone using your tummy as a step.

    Ingrid: I used to take step when I was young and fit. Though, that was once upon a time in a galaxy far, faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar away.

  17. orannia says:

    She really does look like she is doing aerobics!

    Kris – the publishers should hire you to critique the covers of forthcoming releases…

  18. Kris says:

    After reading a post about book covers at Wave's, Orannia, I discovered that I get paid more per hour than the majority of cover artists do per book. So, I'm pretty certain the publishers wouldn't be able to afford me.
