Call for Cover Submissions


I’m just not feeling the covers I’ve been looking through, and I haven’t had a chance to scan in a few more boxes.

So! If you have a romance novel with a bad cover, send the picture (or link to the picture) to me! send it to Be sure to include the name (and or link) you’d like listed for credit!

We’re open for submissions of bad romance novel quotes, too, but I’m definitely in need of covers right now. morebadbookcovers and badlitmakestheworldgoround and… um… there are others, I know, damnit.

But I’ve had 2 sleeping pills that cause me to hallucinate, and a bunch of other pills, and I’m kind of really slooooow right now. So… Help a friend out?

Whatever that is, we’re all grossed out.

Go take a shower. Now.

Bring Me Fire — Emily Stone

elizabethplaid said: Maybe “pegging”, too. Also, there is a mouse on the cover. I hate that these just leave me with so many questions. I hope the mouse talks and is like, “Run quick, before she gets the raw ginger!”

So we get this cover. And we look at it. And I’m trying to figure out what book they’re reading, and UW says “is that a mouse?” and I look down and it’s totally a mouse.

And I just don’t know what to say to that, because, like you, I have so many questions about this mouse and why he’s there.

And then I remember that cartoon Ben & Me, and I kind of wonder if the MOUSE is writing the romance novel.

Have you seen the show Teen Wolf? I swear some of them wind up with LESS hair when they transform. It’s been a while since I’ve seen the show, but I’m pretty sure Derek somehow loses his otherwise very impressive eyebrows.

Like, goes to Matt smith levels of no-eyebrows.

scarabattoli said: No time for sexual intercourse female! There is a new episode of Pawn Stars!

UW laughed pretty heartily at this. Partially because he was actually watching an episode of Pawn Stars at the moment I read it to him.

Guess who just got a Bedazzler?

This guy!

FYI: Bedazzler.

And it would be fabulous.

Wife? Well, we do remember something about a cello player.

Or at least someone who uses a bow.

Only you can prevent forest fires.

By, you know, not being on fire.

Given his expression, probably something about a violent groinal attack.

The edge of a cliff. Waiting to get their ass pecked off by a raven.
