    I enjoyed Film Director’s “Movie Title” adaptation of this book. Multi-award-winning Lead Actor starred in it.

    Book Title is described as follows on the publisher Publisher’s website:

    “BOOK TITLE is the first part in the epic series about Fantasy Teen Heroine, cursed with The Awesome Power Which Is A Symbol Of Teenage Issues.

    “Fantasy Teen Heroine crosses paths with Generic Fantasy Heartthrob and Plucky Sidekick, and they are chosen by Plot Exposition Cardboard Character to defeat Villain.

    Villain’s chief henchman, Evil Heartthrob, sets out to destroy the party of heroes… but at the same time he is strangely attracted to Fantasy Teen Heroine – who finds herself torn between the affections of Generic Fantasy Heartthrob and Evil Heartthrob.

    “Can Fantasy Teen Heroine escape the evil designs of Villain and master her Powers Which Are A Symbol Of Teenage Issues in time to save the world…?

    “And did we mention that we have included minorities, to show that we’re not stuck in the tired old Generic Fantasy tropes?”

    Wait, wait. This actually got printed, even as a joke?

    Tag, did you lose all the covers I sent a couple years ago? Tsk. I annoyed a couple of book dealers to get them!

    But seriously, I have so many to send that the Submit page isn’t going to work. Can I email them somewhere as a bulk lot of staggering WTF?

    What if this was written by someone named “Book Title,” and they decided to call the novel “Author Name”?

  11. Ray P Says:

    It should have ‘A Picture’ instead of this cover.

  12. THX 1139 Says:

    @RayP: Why not? Yesterday we had an error connecting to database instead of this website.

  13. Ray P Says:

    “File not found” might have been better cover c’est vrais.

  14. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    It’s like someone was preparing the cover in powerpoint and was just learning how to use it.
