Holy moses, I think your kitty is possesed or something O.O
IÂ´m a bit worried about Mayhem… 😀
Amazing what a camera flash can do! 🙂
One of the better Misadventures, Chris. Mayhem, I do believe your zombie vision is ineffective.

You should be scared of the laser eyes. I know I am.
I have to admit that the combination of the book covers, the story and advertising FOR each book makes for a fascinating misadventure! Mayhem and Chaos also add that little twist at the end! ;D
Chris- Someone to Cuttle? I laughed out loud!
I’m thinking shy guy isn’t really all that shy-

OMG, I can’t believe there is actually a book called “College Circlejerk Buddies” That is FABULOUS! You know it must be amazingly awful!
The Adventures in Stock Photography always make my day, but I’m curious as to how this amazing revelation was revealed? How *do* you get your insider information? Threaten them with Mayhem?
Wow, this was an especially inspired one! I don’t know if I CAN regain my composure. 😀 Especially after Someone to Cuttle. I mean, just when I thought I’d seen it all. And May! Whoa!

Lol, that last cover, haha, his expression

I’m going to away for a while so I can laugh hysterically. And, umm, find someone to cuttle.
It kinda reminds me of my cat Tigger bn Laden! 😀
He’s shy AND emo. That poor boy. No wonder he needs someone to cuttle.
Mayhem reveals true super-cat nature…

“His horny howls”? That hurts.
May could give Rudolph a run for his money. What is a red nose compared to neon zombie death-ray vision?
A recent post from Brenda..Some sweater knitting
May has laser vision!!!
I wonder how much ‘cuttling’ that man needs! 🙂
OMG, alien cat!!!!
I think because blond emo guy usually had kind of bangs whereas shy guy’s hair was usually pushed back.
Jason wins for best cuttle fish reference. LOL
I am shocked. Shocked, I say.
It’s about time May started taking action.
A recent post from Cheryl S…Marin See, Marin Do
Awesome Misadventures!! Shocking revelation, fab covers, fab titles, and May ready to zap you with her super-kitty-powers.

Please, take a moment to recover your composure before continuing with the Misadventure.
How am I meant to recover after an expose like that?
OMG – May! *hides*
A recent post from orannia..Books 2012: July Update
I’m still getting over the ‘Someone to Cuttle’ title. Really who thinks these up? I really hope it isn’t some dodgy cuttle shifter book!
Lol I just checked goodreads and lo and behold it is a cuttle shifter book! I was only kidding when I mentioned it above! What next a housefly shifter? A maggot shifter or perhaps a snail shifter?
His Horny Howls? Where’s the purchase button? No, I mean it!!
Stop looking at me like that Mayhem. Don’t judge.
After reading the blurb on “Someone to Cuttle” I know exactly where to find my next dose of tentacle pr0ns.
Wusswoo, JL Merrow did a m/m tortoise shifter story that’s really cute, and I have insider information on some possum shifters.
A recent post from PD Singer..Saturday Snark!
I live in constant fear that one day one of my covers might end up here. I wake up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat. 😛
Some of these covers are truly scary. How on earth do you find them?
A recent post from louH..Wednesday Word
Some of these titles/covers are so bad. I mean, I nearly lost it when I saw a cuttlefish on the cover. And who thought the title College Circlejerk Buddies was a great idea?
A recent post from Seanna Lea..Swimming
Oh dear 🙂
A recent post from mrspao..An unintended Olympic break
Directed here after a little discussion on Facebook where I commented that I hadn’t seen any of the models on the covers of any of my books on other books as yet. Apparently this is because I am:-
(a) Not looking hard enough.
(b) Very unobservant.
(c) Rather lacking in my cuttlefish shifter stories.
(d) All of the above
Very amusing post.
Though I have to say I don’t care how many covers he has been on, I still love my Between Heaven & Hell cover. It is my first cover that is all mine (as opposed to an anthology/shared cover) and will always be one of my favourites.
