Cover variations are FINALLY here!

One of the most requested features over the years has been for cover art variations. You see a "new" book by an author you love at the book store. You know you've never seen the cover before, but have you read it?

On the book detail page, you will now see multiple covers for each book right before Recent Publishing History. We added around 40,000 additional covers, so obviously we're just getting started. Right now, what you'll see are covers with different ISBN's. The pesky problem of multiple covers for the same ISBN will be addressed with this month's update. We are also not currently including covers for audio since they usually have the same cover as the printed books.

There is a catch, though. You need to be logged in to your account (free or paid) to see the covers.

Here's an example from the Jude Deveraux booklist -- Wild Orchids. Enjoy!

Great idea. That's something I usually do in my author fansites, I love to see the diferent covers specially when there are international covers.
