    Savage Twilight by Cassie Edwards made me LAUGH OUT LOUD just a SLIGHT bit louder than about 8 others. ALL of them are great. What a fun contest!! You gotta do more caption type contests, so many of your readers are brilliantly funny.

    I laughed out loud at the Mel Gibson “strolling by” one, and the Michael Jackson one was sooo wrong! ::cringe:: lol. 

    But the Stephen King/Twilight is the one that looks as authentic as the original bait n switch with Dan Brown/Simon Kernick, so that got my vote. 

    Great job everyone!

    My vote would have to go to The Tin Star…It is such a Louis L’Amore title. But I would have to say that Jesus H. Christ was my favorite ‘non-author’.

    But the Stephen King/Twilight mashup looked as authentic as the Dan Brown/Simon Kernick bait n switch so that’s what got my vote.

    We have to pick only one?!?! These are hilarously brilliant. Kudos to all the “artists” who put these together. I am impressed by your skill and wit!

    I expire through sheer envy at the imaginations of those whose minds conceived these.

    (Translated: I just about busted my gut laughing)

    Great Job to everyone who entered!

    the Mel Gibson one cracked me up, as did the Chuck Norris one.

    The Micheal Jackson one was so wrong but so true, LOL.

    Jesus H. Christ was my favorite non-author too.

    The contempt. The insolence. The cheek. The hilarity!
    Kudos to the entrants, hilarious, one and all.

    But Nora Roberts saying the Edwards book blows?
    I’m still laughing.

    So funny, thanks for the laughs!
    Loved Jesus H. Christ, especially since dad said her shit is the bomb!

    There are so many good ones, but Savage Twilight made me laugh out loud.  So simple but perfect.

    So wrong! So many levels! So FUN!

    The Cassie Edwards entries? Oh. My. Word.

    So many good ones, but I laughed the hardest at the “Nora Roberts also has a new release…”, King pimping Twilight, Conspiracy in Death, and the Scandal one.

    Gold stars for everyone though. 

    And FTR Colin Firth was the hottest Darcy Ever!

    Those were awesome.  There were 2 I wanted to vote for.  I’m sad I could only pick one.

    Dayum, there’s a ton of cleverness there!  Well done, EVERYONE!!

    I’m embarrassed by how bad mine is!  *blushing*  Good job to everyone else.  I love the Louis L’Amour and Jane Austen ones.  Well done.

    The Mel Gibson one was hilarious. The peek-a-boo photo at the bottom made me snort- so it wins my vote!

    Brenna says:

    What fun going through all the entries with some very hilarious covers.  Until you reach the last.  Chase’s Not Quite a Lady.  Now that was beautifully done and oh so subtle.  Not funny but so absolutely evocative of the era that if you were a Jane Austen fan, you would have bought the book right away only to find out later that it wasn’t done by Austen.

  20. 20

    So many excellent choices!  Well done, all!

    Lovecow2000 says:

    Loved so many of these!!  Thanks.  If I could I’d have voted for more than just one.  : (  Some of my faves are the homage to Rick Roll and the sexxorising of Barbara Cartland, but my all time favorite has to be the one that has Stephen King endorsing Twilight. Given how much King hated Twilight, the cheek of using his own words to endorse it is brilliant.

    Oh my word.. The Cassie Edwards ones had me rolling!  And Bomb Sagat?! I would actually LOVE to read a book called “Full House” by him, because I know it would be hilarious.  Well done everyone!

    Picking one from this lot of extremely well done covers is going to be so hard. Well done you lot!

    These are frickin hilarious.

    Randi says:

    I’m only allowed to pick ONE???? That is so not fair.

    there were definitely 7 that I wanted to vote for: Tempted, Set the Dark on Fire (which is the one I eventually cast my vote for), Lover Awakened (HI-LARIOUS), Hunter’s Edge, Savage Moon, Street Magic, and Scandal.

    Oh, the morning howling was delightful. Thanks everyone for your ideas.

    So much sheer and utter awesomeness, so hard to pick just one! Can’t we have rounds or something?
    I think I’ve gotten my daily dose of laughs – and more!
