What do you think?  

Should I contact the art department and see if there’s still time to change it?

(Pulp-o-mizer link via Papersky.)

ETA: This isn’t a real cover. This is just me playing with the above Pulp-O-Mizer and generating something deliberately wildly inappropriate for fun. RH hasn’t changed the cover for my final book–it will in fact look like the first two. :-) I love the look of the Bones of Faerie trilogy’s actual covers and wouldn’t want to see it change for book 3 either!

ETA2: Because ShellyTOtter threatened asked so nicely, here are pulp covers for Bones of Faerie and Faerie Winter, too.

I just like the vibe of "You, too, can create your own ANTHOLOGY OF INTEREST!" I get when fiddling with the Pulp-O-Mizer...

Yes!

And the melodramatic fonts are glorious.

I would so buy that book! *g*

Sadly, someone would have to write it first. :-)

Except, technically, every word on the cover is true. I'm even using the text at the bottom as something of a promo-y tagline outside of the alternate pulp faerie universe!

Good trick. I went Whaaaat? when I saw it.

Because it clearly represents my book so much better! :-)

Oh, I do adore these. *laughs*

I am way too fond of this thing!

They're so great, especially your pulp taglines. "Every leaf can kill!" So true! So not what they'd put on a real cover!

Yeah. I used a tagline I'm really using (sans exclamation point) on Faerie After, then realized for the others that I could do So Much Better. :-)
