A Piece of Cake

Hmmm. A memoir about a bad life turned good. Sex, abuse, drug use. And candy sprinkles on the cover. Now where have I seen something like this before?

I'm not sure who should bear the brunt for this. My money is on the marketing department, which apparently thinks that Frey-type memoir + sprinkles = big sales, dood! Yikes.

Marketing department. Definitely. And not a great remake of the idea, neither.

I bet it was an in-house design department, operating under said directive.

Their name is Cupcake?

Dreadful cover. Looks like they're trying to sugarcoat another fraud.

Not a fan of this cover either, but in defense of the marketing department (maybe?), I think the colorful "sprinkles" on A Million Little Pieces were supposed to be the emptied contents of medicine pill vials. Though at first glance, I also thought they were non-pareils.
