things that make you go O_o

Usually I stay away from this publisher because, well, quite frankly, it’s just way too easy.

This, however, just had to be shared.

    You haven't seen that before? Sister, you're way behind the times!

  2. Tam says:

    Nice tail. *wink wink* Oh wait, that's a girl. Sigh.

    I don't think I could do it with someone with a tail. It would be just too … bestial? I don't know, you can switch later but during sex humans only please. I have some standards.

  3. lisabea says:

    That's a tail?

    I thought someone had an accident.

  4. JenB says:

    Aaaaack! No. No no no.

    Although…I'm still thinking it's better than this:

  5. Ingrid says:

    *shivers* that's one horrible cover. You don't have a nice one for us?

  6. Jenre says:

    LB: Gross.

    Kris: Well at least you can say it's a very well kept tail. But, I agree a rather misguided choice for a cover.

    Isn't there some branch of Japanese manga yaoi involving men with ears and tails a bit like cats?

  7. Ingrid says:

    Jen isn't that hentai??

    BTW who was the one in favour of redheads? I found a nice cookie, linking from Teddypigs blog

  8. Jenre says:

    Ingrid: I don't know the term but I have read a story on PL Nunn's site which had a creature like that in it and I've seen pictures of them around and about.

  9. Lily says:

    I must say some of the worst covers I've seen are from that site. I love shifter stories but I like them either all human or fully shifted. I don't really like bits and pieces popping over from one to the other.

    *hmm, that sentence looks weird but it makes sense in my head at least, lol*

    How about this one, the guy isn't satisfied with one tail. He's got to have more. Greedy!

    0_o I see Changeling Press is still true to its reputation. What a disaster. I showed this to my friend and when I said it was a tail, she said “Oh, I though she had an arm coming out of her ass”. I've never bought from this pulisher and frankly, seeing their awful covers, I don't even want to check out the books because you feel they can't be much better. Maybe unfair, but appearances DO matter, a lot.

  11. Giddy Up?
    Aww…I thought you would post the cover I sent you from Changeling Press of girl with nice hair but no boobs 😦

  12. Tam says:

    JenB, that cowgirl cover is a travesty. I really don't think it does the story justice based on what I read. The author must have been stunned by their choice. I hope to god he was stunned.

    Other Jen: I've read some stories by Misa Izanaki where one of the characters actually got body mods so that he has a tail that twitches and I think the ears too and there are some characters in the stories that can shift half-way. I'm trying to remember if they had half-way sex. I don't think its hentai, but I'm not 100% sure, its really not my thing although I did enjoy the stories I read by that author.

  13. Ingrid says:

    Tam, I found out later hentai is very explicit yaoi. One wonders how more explicit it can go.

  14. Tam says:

    Ingrid: Google Sensitive Pornograph X-tube. Way more graphic than the book. LOL I always thought hentai was straight porn anime. Who knows though.

  15. Ingrid says:

    You think I haven't seen that one yet?? 😀

  16. Wow, hello tail. Erotic romance books always seem to have awesomely bad covers…

  17. Kris says:

    KZ: Yeah, it was the first time I'd seen it and… it made an impression. At least her cousin's tail looks as though it is actually in about the right spot.

    Tam: You have standards? Holy crap. 😉 Yet you still pimp drippy rosebud yaoi avi. Gotta have priorities, I guess.

    LB: Eeeewww. I just woked up too.

    JenB: Whenever I see that cover all I can think of is “I like a girl with big jugs.” No. Just… no.

    Ingrid: Nice covers?? Where's the fun in that.

    Was it me who said she liked reading about redheads? I think we were talking about 'The Protector'. Nup, can't remember.

    Jen: There's lots of shifter, animal spirit stories in manga and anime. If it's yaoi you could be thinking of 'Loveless' maybe, but that should be left for a more worthy forum. 🙂

    Lily: How many tails does that dude have?! I've read some stories where the protags do a partial shift and it works really well. However, when it happens in a sex scene I always get a bit squicked and suffer from disbelief. I mean, if some guy shifted while you were having sex you can't honestly tell me that you wouldn't freak. Weird.

    Mary: I agree. Although I don't buy my books solely for book covers (blurbs and excerpts get equal weight), they are the main hook for me. I know that I'm not alone in this and some epublishers need to seriously get with the program.

    Smokinhotbooks: Yup. You get some damned sexy stuff in a lot of the print and a few of the larger epubs who have the $$ to commission excellent covers, but the rest vary from good, bad, ugly and to never-ever-should-have-seen-the-light-of-day-WTF-were-they-thinking.

  18. Kris says:

    Katiebabs chook: I thought you said that you were going to post that cover on your blog??

  19. I am going to on my new and improved weekly WTFckery post. But if you want..

  20. Kris says:

    I'll let you take all the glory for that little gem. 😉

  21. Oh my…Hmm…well..least he has something to hold onto…right? HEE!

  22. Kris says:

    Naughty! *g* What happens with the tail when they go at it doggy style I wonder?

  23. Sean Kennedy says:

    Kris, it gets used as a mop.

  24. Kris says:

    For mopping up what exactly? Actually, no, I don't think I need to know.

  25. Kris says:

    I just noticed that her tail actually goes between her arse cheeks. That must be… uncomfortable.

  26. it's actually a dildo with a pony tail! Sweet.

  27. Kris says:

    Speaketh the girl who not long ago was squicking at anal sex.

    It's amazing how convincing a rimming scene from Queer as Folk can be.

  28. Is Queer as Folk like the vid?

    But munching could become an art form.

  29. Kris says:

    There you have it, virtual folks. Proof that Katiebabs chook has been won over by a prettie being eaten out.

    BTW, Queer as Folk was the vid at Jen's.

  30. Very pretty man tush.

  31. Kris says:

    Yeah, we all know now that you like 'em waxed, buffed and polished.

  32. Tracy says:

    The tail… the weird dark hand coming around her from the back…her legs that look like they're encased in control top panty hose. *shivers* It's all just soooo wrong!

  33. Kris says:

    You know. I think it's growing on me. *sigh* And, no, I don't mean the tail.

  34. Tracy says:

    oh honey no. Step away from the book cover.

  35. Kris says:

    *struggling* But it's, it's like it's calling out to me or something.

    OMG! It's the tail, Tracy. The tail! It's hypnotising me!


  36. orannia says:

    That cover disturbs me in so many ways…

    What were they thinking…or perhaps they weren't thinking…:)

  38. Emilie says:

    I believe I can solve the mystery of some of the Japanese terms. Correct me if I'm wrong, but a mostly human character with cat ears and tail is called a neko. Kitsune are shapeshifting fox spirits. The number of tails a kitsune has indicates his or her rank. Nine tails is the highest level, although I usually avoid trying to figure out what that would look like.

  39. Kris says:

    Awww, kitsune! Now I remember. Thanks heaps for lending us your brain, Emilie. You may have noticed that we need it here. 😉
