How Do You Like Your Book Covers?

I have decided that I am changing my cover design. Though I like my cover it is more artsy than anything. I think I need something to better draw the eye.

So, I have looked through a lot of covers to Urban Fantasy and I see the bad-ass person on the cover still is pretty popular. Yeah, if they are good covers I do really like these types.

YA books (even though I don't write them, they are really popular) seems to have books that depict symbolism, bodies, or girls in dresses.



Then we have horror. Most seem to show a location or object to do with the story.


So, what types of covers do you prefer?

Supernatural Season 6 Makes Me Want to Cry

Warning* This blog contains some spoilers of the show Supernatural.

For the past few years I have avoided watch season 6 and beyond of the series Supernatural. I LOVED the first five seasons and felt they told a great tale about family, sacrifice, and kicking monster ass. Most shows tend to falter and fizzle into a story of the week sort of thing. Supernatural didn't because I believe Eric Kripke had a plan. That plan ended with season five and he left the show. However, it still continued, badly.

I finally broke down and watched season six out of morbid curiosity. Who were these characters? They certainly weren't the ones I'd grown to love during the first fives seasons, though they were still great to look at. It felt like the writers were really reaching to bring the plot lines together? What was the point of the episode with fairies? Let's give Sam and Dean something they haven't fought? Also, it took the breaking of 66 seals to open Lucifer's Box and 4 rings of the Horsemen to close it. Someone explain how Castiel can open the door and let Sam out without Lucifer or Michael noticing.

All in all, the season was completely lackluster. It got better toward the end, but I would only rate it to be about the same level as the beginning of Season 3. I watched the beginning of Season 7 and had another What the Fuck? moment. Why the hell would Dean bow down to Castiel when he said fuck you to every other Supenatural creature that wanted him to submit?

Do you like stories about angels, demons, and the supernatural? Pick up a copy of "A Prescription for Delirium" available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.

And I caught it all on film...

So, after a month of posting about supernatural creatures, I'm going to take things easy today. Let's watch some kickass videos about supernatural stuff. Enjoy! Warning: this is not for children or the faint of heart.

Starting out with this new show I've been watching. It's called Hemlock Grove. I love it for the Romanian folklore scattered throughout. This is Peter, the protagonist, changing into a werewolf. This gets gruesome and gory.

Next is a fan made video of Supernatural. Of, course I had to have something in here. With the song, it's really creepy. By the way, the song is actually a poem by Poe.

Last I have a a series of game trailers for the MMO The Secret World. I think I've mentioned that I adore this game. I even made Gabby on it and roleplay on the game with her.
