BOOK NEWS HOT LINKS FOR JAN. 21 – BAD BOOK COVERS AND INTERVIEW WITH STEFAN PETRUCHA

What’s the story behind genre fiction’s covers? Source

Hmm to agree or not to agree with the author of this article, that is the question. I can say right of the bat that I do agree with the caption underneath the picture, do not judge a book by the cover. If I had done that I would have never read the Sookie Stackhouse books. But I don’t really agree with the bashing of the other books. I actually enjoy a lot of the cover for fantasy books. Don’t get me wrong, there are some bad ones, or the trash and or slutty ones. But that normally means the books is for a more mature reader. Okay and I just have to throw this out there real quick, what’s with the emo kid comment, was it necessary. What are your thoughts on the article? Do you think book covers no a days are pretty crappy, do you like them? Which is your favorite? Do you have a least favorite? Oh and is there a book you judge by the cover, but ended up reading and loved it?

Exclusive Interview: BLOOD PROPHECY Author Stefan Petrucha. Source

I didn’t recognize the name Stefan Petrucha, but after reading the article, if he was involved in any thing X-Files, he gets a thumbs up in my book! I actually want to check out some of his newer stuff coming out. What can I say, I am a sucker for parodies and as much as I love HP and Twilight, parodies about them have to be awesomely funny! Are you familiar with Stefan Petrucha’s works? Which is your favorite? Are you going to check out those parodies?What did you think of the interview?
