Usually when I hit the UBS,I go for the stepback covers first while in the romance section..open..look..looks good..grab & read back later:)Then I go for the "front" cover ones next.
Have you ever come across an "odd" stepback?
I bought Keeper of the Dreamby Penelope Williamson and the stepback had two pictures in the front! Another was one by Bobbi Smith(cant remember the name) but it had a stepback in the front and the middle! Now the weirdest was this book that was set in the jungle in the 1800's but the models inside were modern today couples in shorts and tank tops! like..OOPS!? Have you ever come across something odd or different in your book hunting?

In Bulgaria we don't have books with stepback covers. Years ago there was a publisher who has published books with stepback covers, but it no longer exists. For this reason I have never met such odd stepback covers.

None of your romance books have stepback covers Inka?
Are all books there printed only with front covers?
Do you ever get any used stepback ones at used book stores from other countries?

We have about 50-60 books with stepback cover's. Even yesterday I shot with the camera part of them to upload them to the group. In most of our books stepback covers are used for a front cover. Like this:

Thanks for sharing that Inka! So they use the same cover models,just the background is different. I suppose too it is cheaper to publish a book with just one cover..do you think?
