That's a number 3 upper left 4 and fangs lower 3 in the 2.Click for full image

Farquarson Comments:I don’t know what bothers me more–the artwork or the title. I hate shots from inside someone’s mouth; it reminds me of the, “Dentist” scene from Little Shop of Horrors. On the other hand, calling your book “Sucks & Blows” is an absolute GIFT to any critic worthy of the name.

Extra points go to the photo of a computer screen! Thanks Farquarson!

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: 8.12 out of 10)

    If this book isn’t about gay vampires (campires?), then I’m going to be disappointed.

  2. THX 1138 Says:

    It’s not a vampire, it’s Digby, the Biggest Dog in the World.

  3. Herm Says:

    I like this, both cover and title. It’s cheeky and screams “hey, I’m not taking myself too seriously”. If the book lives up to that, well – good show, sir/madam/honoured author (hard to tell with a name like Storm).

    Genius idea photographing a computer screen in order to follow the site rules.

  4. Herm Says:

    Oh, and I thought of the dentist song too. Vampire oral hygiene must be significantly hampered by the little mirror on a stick thingy not working.

  5. storm grant Says:

    Yes, Kathryn, you’re right! It’s gay vampires. Here’s the tag line:
    Sucks & Blows: The epic (but short!) love story of a vampire and his dentist.

    And Herm, if you like puns and general silliness, I don’t believe you’ll be disappointed. ;-D

    Sadly, I’ve never seen Little Shop of Horrors.

    Thanks for discussing my wee story.

    “Storm Grant Sucks & Blows” is up there with “Dostoyevsky The Idiot” and “The Sheep Look Up John Brunner” – unfortunate combinations of words found on book spines.

    The screen photo gets me wondering: when we will see the first Kindle cover on Good Show Sir? (Or has I already happened when I wasn’t looking?)

    “The epic (but short!) love story of a vampire and his dentist.”

    Should we be expecting a sequel entitled Swallows and Spits?

    Somehow, putting the author’s name in two lines makes my fevered brain to process them as two words.

    “Eh, it was written by… Storm… Grant… an epic person who applied for money from the government. Wait, does that make any sense?”

    ….a problem further compounded by the first name being “Storm” and the title apparently wholly relating to mutually counteracting gas-dynamics phenomena.

    If you have but a few words to put on the cover, please arrange them in a logical, coherent way that it doesn’t endlessly confuse morons like me!

    If you suck and blow with those fangs don’t expect good things….

  12. Hep C Says:

    It’s one of those rare occasions, when the title overshadows even the horrific cover. Good show – but only as far as the title is concerned.

  13. rev Says:

    Could be worse. It could be Blows and Sucks.

    And swallows!
