  1. 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

  2. OMG, I can’t believe there is actually a book called “College Circlejerk Buddies” That is FABULOUS! You know it must be amazingly awful!

  3. 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?

  4. 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!

  5. 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

  6. 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!

  7. 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?

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

  10. 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?

  11. 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.
