things that make you go O_o

Me: *removes stethoscope* I’m afraid it’s not good news.

Not-very-sexy-mesh-shirt-but-has-messy-hair-so-it’s-ok guy: *gasp*

Blondie surfer dude with sunglass tan: *frantic* Tell us, Dr Kris. What is it?!

Me: Well, I’m afraid it might be terminal…

Not-very-sexy-mesh-shirt-but-has-messy-hair-so-it’s-ok guy: *gasp*

Blondie surfer dude with sunglass tan: *frantic* Oh noez. Just tell us, Dr Kris!

Me: Well, in my expert medical opinion, I think it’s…

*eyeflash montage, which if you watched Alles Was Zahlt you would know all about. just sayin’.*

… a severe case of floating-head.

Not-very-sexy-mesh-shirt-but-has-messy-hair-so-it’s-ok guy and Blondie surfer dude with sunglass tan: *wailing* Nooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!

  1. Ingrid says:

    You better put up that pic with the right sexy dude in mesh shirt. Not that it is weather here to wear mesh!

    And as I did not see AWT, I have nooo clue

  2. Kris says:

    Ingrid, you know Sean hates it when I post pics of his secret twinkie self.

    The AWT eyeflash montage is epic. Not quite as good as DeRo, but still the stuff of legends.

  3. Val says:

    Yeah, and what about that weird little child in the green robe? This is really not the greatest cover art I've ever seen!

  4. Kris says:

    Val, hun, that's actually the main female character (it's m/m/f) and not a kidlet from the story.

  5. Lily says:

    You need to save this for one of Wave's ugly cover contest.

    It's all kinds of wrong!

  6. Jenre says:

    She must be the 'magic' one out of the trio and can obviously cast a spell to disengage her head from her shoulders.

  7. Kris, did you photoshop yourself on the cover as the girl in the green robe?

  8. Kris says:

    Lily, call me strange, but I've actually become quite fond of this cover. 🙂

    Jenre: O_O How did you guess that she's a witch??

    Katiebabs chook: You know that I have freckles so that can't possibly be me.

    Plus I would never be caught dead in that colour green. It is exactly the same colour as my high school uniform, which I burned the day I finished school.

  9. Oh my you missed quite an interesting twitter conversation today *evil smirk* we tweeted 4 hours about man love and butter. M'kay have you noticed kitchen products being used for man love? I was reading Gray's Awakening when both heroes got so turned on…they reached for the butter O_o. That's just ewww. I mean what if it was the salted king?!!!!

    P.S that cover is creepy.

  10. Tam says:

    Holy shit, that is freaky.

    I have to say my kid can photoshop better than that. Sigh.

  11. Chris says:

    One hopes that you've submitted this to Wave… 🙂

  12. Kassa says:

    I think their kids do these covers sadly.

  13. MsM says:


    These are the types of book covers to give a person nightmares.

    Not at ALL like the butt crack covers we were discussing on DIK today. *grins*

    I'll take butt crack covers over floating heads any day!



  14. Tam says:

    Smoking, butter is the least of it. LOL I've read margarine (better to go all natural butter), garlic sauce (from an Italian restaurant, so a dip kind of sauce), various cooking oils and sesame oil. I still get imagines in my head every time I smell that.

  15. Mariana says:

    I think I love you! You are one funny chick! I never laughed so hard this year… thanks 🙂

  16. Kris says:

    KC: *snort* You think you can tempt me, don't you. It will take more than food sex, sweetie. Plus once you've had a blog discussion about ginger being used as a sound butter just seems so passe. 😉

    Tam: At this point I just want to be able to photoshop a floating head. My skillz are sadly under-developed. 😦

    Chris: Nope. Mocking is as far as I go.

  17. Kris says:

    Kassa: A few of the recent eXtasy book covers have actually been pretty good so I think they must have invested some money into cover art.

    MsM: With those butt cracks you showed as examples so too would I! LOL.

    Mariana: *blushes* Thank you, although some people think that I'm not as funny as I think I am. Obviously they are wrong, but still… 😉

  18. Tracy says:

    Blonde dude needs to get his head out of the vice grip before he's completely flat.

  19. orannia says:

    I second Ingrid – we need the right sexy dude in the mesh shoot.

    And honestly Dr Kris, I thought you were going to diagnose mannequin swap disease!

  20. Kris I will get you on twitter if it's the last thing I do. Blast, I thought the man love butter would for sure get you tweeting. Dammit back to the drawing board.

    Tam seriously garlic,ginger, sesame oil….? I don't think I'm ready for that *eyes widen in fear*

  21. hehe…what's up with the floating head in a cornhusk? Is that supposed to be a woman in a cape? Oy!

  22. Kris says:

    Tracy: *snicker* He reminds me of someone… and actor I think, but I'm struggling to think of who. *ponders* Maybe doing a search for a blonde, male actor will help. At the very least, it will help me get through the rest of this Friday afternoon. 🙂

    Dr Orannia, thank you for your second opinion. I shall take that on board, do the appropriate tests that will nearly kill the patient and then come in on my white horse and save the day!

    KC: Ha! You wish. *smirk*

  23. Kris says:

    Bridget, if you squint your eyes and look at it sideways, she also becomes a… 😉

  24. orannia says:

    …do the appropriate tests that will nearly kill the patient and then come in on my white horse and save the day.

    Which is exactly how it should be 🙂 Dr Kris – I am intrigued as to your approach. Will you be using the pin technique and, if so, where do you intend to start?

  25. Kris says:

    Actually, Dr Orannia, I was thinking of something more along the lines of this:

  26. Tam says:

    Someone should invent and X-rated Operation Game. Kris?

    And Smokin's making me feel pervy for reading books with food play Kris. Damn innocents out there. Make her stop.

  27. Kris, if you love me, you would join Twitter.

    Feel the guilt!

  28. Chris says:

    Be strong, Kris! Don't need no steenkin' tweets.

    BTW, Not-very-sexy-mesh-shirt-but-has-messy-hair-so-it's-ok guy is obviously trying to dislodge his unmentionables from his butt crack, that's why his arms are behind his back and he's looking so intense under the messy hair.

  31. Tam says:

    “Don't be a twit, fly away from Twitter”

    That's MY motto. That along with Wren's “No filler. Just the meat!” slogan.

  32. K. Z. Snow says:

    Who's the publisher, ferdacryinoutloud?

  33. Kris says:

    Tam: On it! Oh, and Tam, hun, you are a perve. Just revel in it. 🙂

    KBC: No!!!!

    Chris: Hoo hah!

    Sara: Good point… or perhaps his butt plug is annoying him… 😉

    KZ: It's eXtasy Books, but as I said yesterday their covers appear to be getting better going by the latest couple of releases.

  34. I can't believe that you guys don't think mesh shirts, Linus hair, surfer dudes and bobble heads are sexy? LOL! Seriously, though, I'll have to agree, this cover wasn't one of my favorites. I'm happy to report that my last few covers have been much better, though. No more Sims do erotica.

  35. Kris says:

    *ponders* Well, I've recently discovered the joys of mesh covered butts, Stephani, so maybe you could request that on your cover next time. 😉

    I've noticed the change in yours and others recent books from the eXtasy line. I think it's great, even if it does give me less material. *cheeky g*

    PS – I don't s'pose you'd give any hints as to when the next book is out in the Lost Shifters series. *bats eyelashes* I'm hoping it's Rat's story. I think he's great. 🙂

  36. Chris says:

    *waves at Kris*

  37. I'm so grinning because Rat's story is next. It comes out February 15th and here's the cover:

    As for mesh underwear, I think it must leave behind some interesting patterns on certain parts of the anatomy. LOL

  38. Kris says:

    Holy shit. I'd be so cueing Twilight zone music right now if I wasn't squeeing. You've just made my friend Tam and I very happy readers. We love us a snarky goth boy. *g*

    Terrific cover, btw. I'm imagining them in mesh undies. The patterns make for great licking… or so I've heard. 😉

  39. Tam says:

    Squeeee. Definitely. I love me a snarky goth boy. He could have looked a bit more gothy on the cover but they are still very pretty and I'm not complaining. Not a bobble head in sight so big thumbs up. 🙂 Can't wait.

  40. Thanks Kris and Tam. The fact that you enjoy my Lost Shifter books means a lot to me. You guys rock!
