Just Returned to the Paperback Shelf


Haven't the green lizard people suffered enough? I mean, how much bowing and scraping does one hero need?! I personally thing taking guns to a trident fight is just poor taste. Poor drooly lizard people.

----------------------------------------

Just a hint: when your book's FRONT cover looks more like a book's BACK cover, it's time to fire your cover designer.


Obviously geared toward the LONGARM fans, but without the gratuitous sex and violence. Which, really, takes all the joy out of it.

-------------------------------------------------------------

And finally, for all you Phallic Phriday Phans (I pheel I've been neglecting you!):



Nuh UH! They did NOT just call her a SHEATH. Can you be any more obvious that your romance novel is about SEX?! Other titles:

The Train and the Tunnel

The Toad and the Hole

The Plug and the Socket

The Banana and the Hairy Clam

Help me out here!

Erm, Sheath looks creepily like Jamie Lee Curtis. Not sure how I feel about that. Maybe a little nauseous...

The Sword and the Sheath... On second read, it's still ridiculous. What were they thinking?

That reminds me of one of my favorite definitions ever:

invaginate |inˈvajəˌnāt|

verb ( be invaginated) chiefly Anatomy Biology
be turned inside out or folded back on itself to form a cavity or pouch.

ORIGIN mid 17th cent.: back-formation from invagination .

Why not just call it "The Penis and the Vagina"?
