I love it!

Who says nobody could possibly love a freak, eh?

Maryn, underhanded but not three-handed

Round the back, controlling his three handed glove puppet?

Is Fail the title of the book, or the book cover rating?

I'm more worried about his third leg.

How do you know the character in this book doesn't really have three arms?

She might. A romance novel about a woman with three arms? Why not?

Yeah, it looks like that, or it has two titles. Either way, along with a three-handed woman....

Chernobyl's Glow of Love, anybody?

..."Born amid the soft glow of radioactive dust, theirs was a love that exploded with the passion of a criticality excursion (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_accident#Criticality_accidents), that burned with the white incandesence of a graphite fire (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windscale_fire)..."

Found where OFG got the book cover from. It's a website about mistakes called FAILBLOG (http://failblog.org/). (Scroll down.) Too funny!

I couldn't make out the title of this book... but I did figure out who the author is... :)

:eek:

You beat me to it, stormie! I get the 'Fails' sent to me daily along with the LOLCats and dogs. :)

Three arms aren't altogether uncommon in sci-fi... :)

By the way, OFG, I just spent TWO hours laughing my a$$ off reading the posts on that site. :D

Don't worry Serenity, the husband came in the house and I'm laughing so hard that my eyes are watering. He didn't understand why I found some of them so funny. He did get the football players Dingle and Berry.

I think I needed that stress relief, though. And I did sign up for the email, so now I get kittehs, goggies, and fails.

Shoot, me too!. Two hours (at least) when I shoulda been writing--and I lost my train of thought.

That was hilarious. Now, I'm off to look at the blog. :D

Go ahead and laugh. But the author does have 42 books published.

The author didn't design the cover, though, I assume.

I'm not laughing at the author, I'm laughing at the cover, which is hilarious, though unintentionally.

Which makes it even more funny, in a way.

This title (Castles in the Air) is available on Amazon, but with a different cover. It's funny stuff. The first line: She had all her teeth. By page three both major characters have flailed and heaved and lost their breath, and the girl has bitten her captor with that full complement of teeth. In spite of her wild nature, he soon begins to woo her, saying things like, "Your freckles float like tidbits of cinnamon on the clearest wine."

Oh... dear.

Maybe the heroine had three hands after all... all the better to pick her teeth with.

Who's the publisher?! PA?

Fourth hand... WIN!

Actually, I felt so bad for the author I could only giggle before. Now, I think I'll have a good :roll: since this won't crush them. (hopefully)

At least she has a sense of humour about it:


From the Author
Unusual Cover
The cover of CASTLES IN THE AIR contains probably the best mistake ever made by a cover artist. The heroine has three hands. Please keep in mind this is a romance, not science fiction. Her three hands have nothing to do with the plot. It is simply one of those serendipitous mistakes which has created a lot of fun for me.

On a cover of a book I had from a former life, they added a whole planet/moon that didn't exist. An extra hand just doesn't seem all that special. ;)
