things that make you go O_o

First impressions, anyone??

‘Cos I have to tell you that it took me a while to ‘see’ what was going on.

Then again I can be deliberately conveniently completely oblivious at times.

  1. Tam says:

    I must be plain old oblivous then because my only reaction was “gross”. Bleeding chick, not hot.

  2. Val says:

    I'm with Tam. In fact, it looks like a nosebleed from the way she's positioned. Ick is the word!

  3. Wha…? (I must be oblivious, too. Conveniently, deliberately or otherwise)

  4. Oh, is that her hair going across her face?

  5. nichem says:

    That was my reaction too, Tam. And why do they have it so we're looking up her nose? O_o

  6. Slimer from Ghostbusters was shot and killed and that his blood running down the wall.

    The chick is mistress who may have shot him.

  7. Lily says:

    I'm in the Oblivious Camp with the others. I still don't see it.

    What you talking 'bout, Kris??? 😀

  8. Mary M. says:

    Umph. If that's indeed her hair like Wren suggested, I can only say that the cover was badly designed because it does look much more like a bleeding woman. That's the only thing I could see until I read the comments. And her mouth looks like the Joker's. Eurk. Did you send this to Wave for her contest? This deserves a spot.

  9. Natasha says:

    Oh no….. poor woman is getting attacked by a bad hair dye job!
    No seriously I became a red head on saturday and now I'm really really scared. Will my hair now attack me as well?

  10. Patti says:

    All I see is a gross cover. And I don't like that you can see into her nose. No, dear, no bats in the cave…too much blood methinks.

  11. K. Z. Snow says:

    Ew. Even I, horror maven that I am, would not be inclined to delve into this book. Woman on cover = bad sign. Blood-drenched woman on cover = avoid.

  12. Kris says:

    So here's where I confess… my first thought was 'whoa, why is there a bleeding pig head on that body?' Yes, it is true. I thought it was an Animal Farm vampire tale.

    Tam: As per the above, I got the bleeding part but not the chick part.

    Val: Well, you guessed it was chick so that was more than I did at first.

    Wren: It took me forever, but, yes, that's her hair going across her face and NOT blood.

    Richelle: I thought it was a snout so when I came to realise her hair was tilted back and we were looking up her nose it seriously didn't bother me. No it did not.

  13. jitterbug says:

    I see something that resembles my attempts at using Photoshop -> an indefinable mess. But I like Natasha's take on it – bad hair dye job… and now her hair is trying to suffocate her in retaliation!

  14. Kris says:

    EH: Well said.

    Katiebabs chook: Now that's just silly. If Slimer was shot, it would be green. Just sayin'.

    Lily: *snort* I, after much head scratching, finally realised that it's a lady with her head tilted back and her hair flowing across her face.

    Mary: I didn't even notice her mouth! *goes back to have a look* Eek.

  15. Kris says:

    Tish: LOL! If we don't hear from you for a while, we'll know what happened. *Thanks God her hair isn't red at the moment.*

    Patti: Did you spot a booger?? *g*

    KZ: Well, it is a vampire story so blood kinda goes with the territory.

    Sara: My attempts are more like the bubble head book cover we saw the other day. I will be posting an example soon for all to mock. 🙂

  16. Mumma J says:

    Yukky… I can taste blood… I'm going back to the coffee machine…

    Just go away and read it Sissy, by the time I've finished with the head separator you will have finished and you can reveal all!

  17. Kris says:

    Mumma: I get the impression you're feeling a little blood thirsty today. You know how we were going to get together? Well, I think it would be a good idea if we put it off for another day. You can be a leetle scary sometimes.

    Chris: But did you think it was a pig head?? I'm really hoping that I'm not the only one out on this limb here.

  18. Chris says:

    Um, no. Albino frog. 🙂

  19. K. Z. Snow says:

    Well, let me tell ya, that is one graphically confusing way to convey “vampire story.” There sure as shite seems to be a connection between the drippage and whatever is slapped across the girl's face.

    My “ew” stands.

  20. Any Idea who the cover artist is….


  21. Kris says:

    Chris: You're weird.

    KZ: So noted. 🙂 Also, I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to read this now just to see if the hair slapping relates to the story at all. Lucky for me the blurb looks interesting-ish.

    EH: I can tell you with all honesty that it wasn't me. Other than that… no idea. I did have a quick squiz on the Wild Horse Press website, but couldn't see a name.

  22. Chris says:

    I'm not the one who thought it was a pig. 🙂

  23. Kris says:

    But I had Animal Farm as a reference. A Marcel Marceau version of Toad from Wind in the Willows just won't cut it.

  24. Chris says:

    I was actually thinking albino poison dart frog more than Toad. Or maybe a rousing round of “Froggie Went a Courtin' and He Did Bleed”…

  25. Kris says:

    See. You're weird.

  26. Chris says:

    Pot. Kettle.

  27. Kris says:

    No, I'm awesome. Granted there's a fine line between it and weird, but I think you'll find that I am on the side of epicness.

  28. Chris says:

    Are your eyes brown by any chance?

  29. Kris says:

    Why yes. Why do you ask? *bats eyelashes*

  30. Chris says:

    No reason.


  31. Kris says:

    *scratches head*


  32. Chris says:


    So full of…

    …eyes are brown.


  33. Lily says:

    Hmmm, this is almost like watching a tennis match. 😀

  34. Kris says:

    Chris: Oh. You're talking about chocolate and how sweet I am. Now I feel guilty for saying that you're weird. Sort of.

    Lily: I don't know what you mean.

  35. JenB says:


  36. Kris says:


    oh wait…

  37. orannia says:

    *shakes head*

  38. Kris says:

    Too right, Orannia. That Chris can be act very strangely sometimes.

    Oh, you meant the cover.


  39. Chris says:

    *puts some highly caffeinated catnip in the mail for the Russian Mob*

  40. Kris says:

    That's just mean.

  41. Chris says:

    Wait, isn't it like o'dark hundred there? Why are you awake?

  42. Kris says:

    You have to ask?? LOL.
