Sorry officer. I use this to.. gut fish. I swear.Click for full image

With such a great confulence of fantasy and romance, we must voyage into a realm of highest art and… ahhh, who am I kidding. Busty red headed women holding her huge dagger! Do not, on your life, forget the glow.

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: 7.35 out of 10)

    One weak point? Hit it for massive damage!!

  2. CSA Says:

    15-20 rpg’s might do the trick too.

    The N and the V are sweet.

    What audience do you think the author targeted the book at? Is her mate male or female or demonic being? It looks a little… “porny”.. to be targeted at the Twilight readers. So does anyone over 18 want to read vampire, witch porn?

    Shes clearly the type of vampire that sunlight doesnt hurt. you know the type… the stupid type. I notice the crucifix on her neck too…

  3. Roses Says:


    What exactly is she doing with the dagger?

    I mean apart from looking sluttily at the reader?

    And if she’s going to use the dagger, isn’t the long dress going to get in the way?

    A witch and a vampire? Her power is unrivalled, she has only 1 weakness…a plot?

  4. Susano Says:

    What next… “she’s a vampiric-werewolf and a witch… with a magic sword… and a pet dragon… and a dark secret… and has to choose between two possible lovers… and she weighs the same as a duck, so we’re gonna burn her anyway.”

    Stop stop!

    My sarcasim detector is going to overload! 😛

    Wow.. just noticing the star lens flare on the end of the knife. Nice touch!

  6. Cara Powers Says:

    OMG. Is that cover supposed to attract men or women? I just can’t tell. Has anyone seen a knife like that outside of fantasy covers and “made for your collection of crap” knives?

  7. Roses Says:

    Susano, what is it about vampire fiction, that the heroine always has to chose between 2 lovers, vampire and usually a werewolf?

  8. Susano Says:

    Roses — maximum market appeal.

  9. Roses Says:

    Yeah, but I get easily bored. And you know when you pick up a Vampire book series these days, she has a hot vamp and a hot werewolf panting over her. I can think of 3 series of which that’s true.

    Perhaps it’s because I’m jealous.

  10. SI Says:

    Everyone forgets Mummies… no romantic encounters for the bandaged few eh.

    And what is it with vampires being in love… surely they are dead.. therefore… everything is dead… if you know what I mean.

  11. CSA Says:

    There’s very few zombie romance novels too, maybe we’ve discovered a niche in the market?

  12. SI Says:

    “Ricardo slumped out of the shower. Balls of water trickled down his now rotting flesh, exposing maggots and the sweet stench of burnt bacon.”

    Possibly…. possibly….

  13. Roses Says:

    Yeah baby, that’s really working for me. Keep it coming!

    I think you’ve hit on a cracking idea. We’ll be rich. Rich, I tell you! Bwahaha!


    Perhaps I should go, get a life….

  14. SI Says:


    Perhaps we all should try finding a life! 😉

    I did notice someone had wrote and released pride and prejudice and zombies. Zombies seem to be the in things these days. Maybe we missed the bandwagon.

    You know, if you edit out the top line of the blurb,that dedcribes my wife.

    “What dear? Yes dear, Ä®’m turning off the computer now . No dear, I was not looking at nastys.”

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    She has only one weakness…her blowdryer.

    We’ve done vampires, werewolves, zombies, mummies, angels, demons, even centaurs. How about gryphons? Any gryphon-based romances?

    ‘But why can’t you go to dance with me? Why?’

    Vladimir cast his eyes aside, hoping Prudence wouldn’t see the tear staining his beak. ‘I…just don’t feel comfortable. The music is too loud. Everyone looks at me so strangely. I get my pinions in the punchbowl.’

  18. David Cowie Says:

    Tried to wipe a bit of fluff off my screen and found out that it wasn’t a bit of fluff, it was FearofMusic typing an awesome special character: look closely at the I in “Į’m”

  19. Jaouad Says:

    That “Ä®” deserves a font-problems tag all of its own.

  20. FearofMusic Says:

    I really should actually look at what post I am respondung to. See Crown of Slaves for reply that should be here. Dammit all.

    @Tag Wizard — Behold! The mother of all Tings!

  22. Tag Wizard Says:

    By great Gwydion’s beard – the dagger tip – you’re right!

  23. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Searching for the perfect gift for your mathematically-inclined loved one? Why not purchase a copy of Gra•√e sin5 this holiday season?

  24. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Let the buyer beware: It does say in plain text on the cover — “A Cin CRAVEN NOVEL.”

  25. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Come on, do the hard sell:

    “She’s a witch and a vampire, and an elf, and a werewolf, and a shape-shifter, and a Yeti, and a Country Folk singer, and a Nobel-Prize-winning astronaut, and a ghost, and a banshee, and a Chupacabra, and a djinn, and a Black Republican, aaaaand…”

    An opposite and a hypotenuse, her triangle is right. She has only one weakness. Harmonic regularity.
