*G* IS FOR GHASTLY BOOK TITLES & COVERS!

Dear readers, I am participating in Ruby Tuesday, Rednesday and Alphabe-Thursday where ‘G’ IS FOR *G*HASTLY, REALLY *G*HASTLY BOOK TITLES & COVERS!
Recently, I’ve been, natch, keeping up with the position of the just-released e-Book format of my psychological suspense novel, The De Clerambault Code (above) which, when I last looked, is still in the TOP 50 psychological thriller category of Amazon’s ebooks! Woohoo! And all profits to charity too! (see sidebar or click
HERE for amazing reviews & further details!)
Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, I couldn’t help noticing the titles and dust jackets of other novels listed. Some, I have to say, were strange!
So, I did a little trawl and came up with the following (none in current Top 100 Amazon lists, as far as I’m aware!Apologies if you know the authors!). Which do you find the weirdest? Know of any other biz
arre titles and/or dust jackets? WHICH TITLE AND/OR BOOK COVER DO YOU FIND THE MOST *G*HASTLY? KNOW OF ANY OTHER(S)?
Do tell me! And do check out other Alphabe-Thursday posts @
Jenny Matlock!
And Ruby Tuesday @ Work of the Poet & Rednesday @ Sue loves Cherries).





Finally, thank you to all my dear readers who have visited or commented. And to new followers too. Have a great week! And see you again soon!
Enjoy!
XOXO LOLA:)

Wow, those really are some weird book covers and book titles! So many of them look pretty hilarious too :) I bought your ebook but I haven't had time to read it yet. I'm hoping I can get to it sometime this month! So looking forward to it :)

These are some really unique titles.

edenhills said...

Those are certainly some interesting titles. I must say, I've never read any of them. I think it's pretty much a tie for the strangest.

Your cover, at least, is clear and crisp--and RED!

COLOR DILEMMA

Yellow or red—which shall it be?
Red for you and yellow for me?

Perhaps you’d rather have yellow instead—
Which leaves me, of course, with handfuls of red!

Whichever hue you decide to choose,
I’ll take the other—no one will lose!
