That's because they're all over Istock images like a rash. I've used a doctored version of this model but a different shot on my forthcoming book trailer for The Summer Queen - purchased at Istock. :) Edited to add that if you go to Shutterstock or Istock you'll find half the bookcovers features on Deja Vu as images.

Sames dress, same horse. Same knight with a photoshop hair dye? Lol, look at the blurb on the Domning cover. I know in the older days she might have been respected as a reviewer, but now?

Yeah I think his hair's been photoshopped, on closer inspection.

And good point! Why would anyone want to put HK's name as an endorsement on their book cover?

And they couldn't even bother to get changed! I was wondering where Harriet had got to, she seems to have been quiet lately.

She's languishing in the 2000 + reviewer ranking, and very close to hitting the 30,000 review mark.

I think so too now. Look at the sideburns.

Here you go. Type 'Medieval knight and lady' into Istock photos and up it comes. http://www.istockphoto.com/search/text/ ... ic#b35bc60

Definitely the same shot, perhaps slightly different angle? Look at the red scarf between the two.
