Cover Love!

It's time for cover love!

Let's start with Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

(US, UK, Australia)

(Portuguese, Croatian)

I think Cynthia Hand really won the cover lottery. All the covers are beautiful. But I think my favorite is the UK version. I find it interesting that the Croatian publisher added wings to the US version. Maybe they wanted to show the reader what the book's about?

Next: Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce

(US, German)

Both publishers us the red/black color scheme. What I really love about the German version is how creepy it is!

(US, French, Spanish)

(UK, German)

Most foreign publishers used some variation of the US cover, sometimes using different colors, sometimes different fonts. I like the black of the French version better than the light blue of the US version. It's more eyecatching. I'm not so cure about the "face-covers", especially the UK girl looks very young.

What are your favorites?

‘philanthropic + epiphany’ (=so much to give + vision):
~let these two words be the start of your journey~

I looove RITErs;
I looove giving'm new opportunities
for thots/ideas/structural integrity,
taking'm in a completely-new-direction:

Why else does a moth fly FROM the night
than to a bold, attractive candle Light??
Don’t let His extravagant Brilliance be extinguished.
You’re creative, yes?
Then, fly-away with U.S. to the antidote…

Whether you obtain moralityB4mortality to wiseabove
or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile!
I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
An XtraXcitinXpose with no zooillogical-expiration-date?
An IQ much higher than K2 all-go-rhythm?
An anti-establishment, savvy victory +
avant-guarde-humility =
you’re promptly astonished, ain’tcha?
withe extraordinarily explosion of maelstrom mellowdramatic??
Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
(with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

“Faith, hope, and love,
the greatest of these is love –
jump into faith…
and you’ll VitSee with love”
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
God believes in you.

Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
from a super-passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big-Zaftig-House.

PS “It is impossible that anyone should NOT receive all that they have believed and hoped to obtain; it gives Me great pleasure when they hope great things from Me and I will always give them more than they expect”
-our Lord Jesus to Saint Gertrude

...think about it, girl:
if 1-outta-1 perishes in 88ish years;
then, how WE sinfull mortals have lived
is where we go for eternity, Up or Down,
Seventh-Heaven or the Abyss o'Misery.
Life is extremely tough now…
yet, life’s extremely short now.
And Satan’s working overtime
to take over your indestructible soul.
Don’t let him.
I Choose Heaven.
