things that make you go O_o

Let me ask you this…

Is a guy doing his best agonized, Wicked Witch of the West interpretation really going to tempt you to buy a book??

Unless, that is, you’re into sadism or have an evil witch fetish.

Which is cool, btw. No judgements here.

Shutting up now.

  1. Looks like the book is eating him. oral book sex pron? heh

  2. That's got to be one of the worst book covers I've seen this year. What were they thinking???


  3. Chris says:

    Is there a secret contest between certain publishers for the worst m/m covers?! Nightmares. I'm going to have nightmares.

  4. Chris says:

    Completely unrelated to anything, but it maybe me spray beer on my computer when I read it last night

  5. dunno…would be cool to open a book like that hand have random popup man titty. can always give the dude a better dye job and smack him til he stops shrieking.

  6. Kris says:

    Katiebabs chook: Pr0n? The only thing is I don't think he's enjoying it very much. Heh. Maybe it is a book about sadism.

    MsM: Yep, I'm not sure how anyone thought that cover was a particularly good idea. Maybe people like it??

    Chris the Thrusty: “Is there a secret contest between certain publishers for the worst m/m covers?!”

    *snort* Could be, but I wonder if you're meant to win or lose??

    Emmy: Pop up man titty! ROFL. Fucking hilarious.

    Word about the Anne Cain covers. She's been doing some awesome one-off art for Dreamspinner press lately.

  7. jitterbug says:

    His hair – if that's what it is and not a… mop, or a particularly cheap wig – is the stuff of nightmares.

  8. Jenre says:

    I can't quite understand what he's got round his neck.

    It is a pretty bad cover, but I have seen worse.

  9. Tam says:

    I have no idea about the cover but I did buy the book. This time based solely on the author/blurb and not the cover obviously. Okay, he only gets to come to the human world (he's fae – and blond so that matches) when someone says the blurb in the book and perhaps he's screaming because he doesn't want to go back? I haven't finished it yet but it's got an unusual fae punishment he's suffering. 😉 Now yer curious aren't ya?

  10. JenB says:

    I see nothing wrong with this cover. I think it's bee-you-tee-ful. In fact, if I ever write a book, I'm asking for a cover just like it.

  11. Kris says:

    Sara: His hair does look like a wig, doesn't it.

    Jen: Heh. I thought it was just his hair, but you're right there is something around his neck. Weird.

    Tam: Well, at lest suffering would fit the expression on the cover… I guess.

    “Now yer curious aren't ya?”


  12. Kris says:

    JenB: “I see nothing wrong with this cover. I think it's bee-you-tee-ful. In fact, if I ever write a book, I'm asking for a cover just like it.”


    Okay. I don't know who your are and what you've done with Jen, but you need to leave right now and bring her back. Bring. Her. Back!!!

    -Ugly book on smugly cover

  14. Kris says:


    It's the Ugly Wigged Boy Cover Monster!!!!


    Or find more food… which ever is easier.

  15. I am so putting the cover up on my next WTfckery post.

  16. Anonymous says:

    Why do you make fun of my brother, scary pumpkin cover man?

    I am so hungry… feed me…

    -Skeery book cover monster

  17. Chris says:

    Crap, we'll next hear about Kris in a lurid murder by skeery book cover monster headline…

  18. Kris says:

    Help me!!!


    Just kidding.


    You get one more cover and that's it. You got that? One.

    Here's some scary hair for you:

  19. Kris says:

    On another note, anyone know anything about this new publisher Mojocastle Press??

  20. Chris says:

    Oh, good plan there, Kris. Now that you've directed the skeery cover monster to THAT publisher, it'll gorge itself and die in screaming agony. Most excellent. Bwa-ha-ha!

  21. My people, the skeery book cover monsters are taking over the world!! Feed us or you will be blinded by men with bad hair and boobs that put Pamela Anderson's to shame.

    -Skeery Book Cover Monster has spoken

  22. Tam says:

    I kind of like pumpkinhead, but the hair on the fire guy needs a trim and some conditioner I think.

  23. Kris says:

    Chris: *hehehe *

    KBC: *gasp* Don't tell me that the skeery book cover monster has already taken over your blog, Katiebabs chook? Katiebabs chook??? NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    Tam: I dunno. I'm no hairdresser, but wouldn't the conditioner go all crusty in that heat??

  24. K. Z. Snow says:

    Maybe if he had a better stylist and drama coach…?

    Kris pookie, Mojo Castle isn't a “new” publisher. I've had a novella there for a while now. All That Is Right is all story, virtually no smexxin'. Needless to say, it hasn't sold well.

  25. Kris says:

    KZ: Maybe.

    It's not new. Really?? Geezus, I'm completely oblivious at times or maybe it's the first time their books have been listed on ARe.

    Needless to say that I'm hoping it's the latter.

  26. Tracy says:

    When I first looked at the cover I thought he was going “woohoo” with his arms up like he just saw a touchdown. That's not right? Oh. Well, I guess that could be a scary look if I squinted.

    Even my 7 year old daughter thought he looked like he was jumping. Maybe he's trying to get away from the book?

  27. Kris says:

    You think he's wooting? *turns head to the right*

    Really?? *turns head to the left*

  28. JenB says:

    Mojocastle is old news, bebe. Keep up!

    BTW, I was totally joking about the awesome cover. *snicker*

  29. Kris says:

    Damn so it was just me living in my own world. I hate it when that happens.

    Oh, c'mon. You're just pretending to be sarky to fit in. You're such a lemming, Jen.

  30. Lily says:

    I can't even think what to say about it.

    Oh wait, yes I can. That is one freaking UGLY cover, just what the hell were they thinking!!

  31. Kris says:

    Who knows?? It's a strange one alright. Maybe Tam can she some light on the different elements once she's finished reading it.

  32. orannia says:

    That's a wig, right? That's the first thing that struck me – his hair is…..wrong!

    Tam is reading it? Tam, are you mad? (I mean that in the nicest possible way 🙂

  33. Kris says:

    It could be bleached straw hair from his being a surfer dude. *shrugs* Not very elfish, though.

  34. Tam says:

    Orannia: What can I say, I like Kiernan Kelly. LOL And elves. So far so good and there is no screaming involved. *shrug* As I said, at least he's blond, guess that's more than some covers give you with regard to matching the character's looks.

  35. Emilie says:

    The Fionn o' the Fae stories were pretty good, I thought. They mix humor and sex, and add in some mythology. The blend works nicely.

  36. Kris says:

    Because I've liked the author's work in the past, I have read a few of the blurbs for this series and they sounded intriguing.

    Unfortunately, I got the impression that the main character doesn't stick with the one partner throughout the series and I knew that wouldn't be my cuppa. I'm such a prude.

  37. What the F is up with his hair…why are his arms raised…why do I want to run screaming in the other direction…

    Seriously who the hell designed this cove? Everyone knows Fae covers are hot muscluar guys with tattoos and arm bracelets *mutters to herself*

  38. Kris says:

    “Everyone knows Fae covers are hot muscluar guys with tattoos and arm bracelets.”

    Word. Or they look like Legolas.

  39. Chris says:

    What?! They don't look like troll dolls?! But… the book cover wouldn't deceive me, right?!

  40. Chris says:

    Oh, now I see. *nom nom nom*

  41. Kris says:

    You're right, Chris!

    Maybe the cover artist thought that the fae dude was the short, squat and weird hair troll doll kind and not the tall, muscular, gorgeous kick arse, perfectly acceptable hair warrior kind.

    That would explain a lot.

    Needless to say I challenge anyone not to prefer the man titty fae hotties that you just found. Prettie!!

  42. Chris says:

    *nom nom nom*

    Aw, look at the pretty flowers.

  43. Kris says:

    *nods, nods* They iz all glittery and stuffs.

  44. Ohhh pretty fairy boys. Me like.

  45. Kris says:

    Me too. 🙂
