I'll dagger it, Samuel you can fire magic at it, Dan you sword it... and Liz... uh wave your hands at it.Click for full image

Hmm, putting on our thinking caps here. ‘Servant of the Dragon’ …. Servant …. Dragon… DRAGON.. of course! Lets have a huge scary, bird! It makes complete sense. We’ll have wizards, swords men and damsels fighting it. One word to descibe my idea, epic!

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 6.56 out of 10)

    This is probably not that bad… though I could just be really tired.

    ‘Saga of Lord of the Isles’ – Seriously? You couldn’t think of a better title for your saga.

    Maybe there was another book called Attack of the Giant Bird which was never published so they thought they might as well just reuse the cover. Alternativly there was a terrible mix-up and Attack of the Giant Bird has a cover showing someone serving a dragon.

    Oh i bet they felt silly when they realised that mistake!

  5. Dave Van Domelen Says:

    The dragon in the book is actually a pre-humanity reptile man wizard. And they do fight a giant bird, but not a dragon.

  6. Tom Noir Says:

    Fair enough, but if your book has ‘Dragon’ in the title and YOUR last name is Drake, I think it behooves you to fit a dragon on the cover somewhere. I mean, this cover already screams “GENERIC FANTASY!” Why not go all the way?

    RE: Blurbs

    Dear Sirs and Madames,

    Just once, please, could you give us a book that DOESN’T say, ‘Nth book of The Trilogy‘, or ‘Xth book of the Ylogy’, or ‘Z books together in Our Omnibus‘ but instead says something along the lines of:

    THIS IS THE ONLY BOOK HE EVER WROTE, AND THERE WON’T BE ANY MORE, IT’S JUST THE ONE, AND YOU CAN ENJOY IT BY ITS LONESOME SELF.

    My sincerest thanks in advance,

    I know this is nit-picking, but why, oh why does the I in the author’s first name have a dot/tiny diamond/star/cross/thingy over it when it is clearly a capital letter?

    Sequels were:
    – BUTLER OF BEELZEBUB
    – BELLBOY OF THE BEAST
    – LACKEY OF THE LOCH NESS MONSTER
    – HOUSEMAID OF THE HOBGOBLIN

    @Jon K.: More to the point, how come the D’s don’t one?

  11. anon Says:

    Proofread carefully to see if you any words out

    Third of a novel in the tale of Ethog Lisps His Creed
    ETHOS OF RANGER VANDT
    Dirk da Veda

    @anon (#10): Well, the D in Dragopi already got that treatment, so repeating it would just be overkill.

    By the way, what’s a dragopi? Oh, that’s supposed to be an “n”? Never mind….
