Top 5 Sundays - Favorite Urban Fantasy Covers!

Don't judge a book by it's cover.  Yeah right.  We all do right?  Well maybe we don't judge it, but we certainly pick it up if we like what we see.  Covers are not just beautiful artwork, they are a promise of what we may expect when we open the pages.  


Morris and Chastain Supernatural Investigations series by Justin Gustainis.

I took a page out of Larissa's list.  She is a series fanatic and loves how many of the covers for them have a special theme.  I was drawn to Black Magic Woman because the artwork on the cover was so dark and mysterious.  The title helped too.  I purchased it based on the synopsis.  It's a pretty cool book.  Evil Ways is in my TBR Pile.


Black Dust Mambo by Adrian Phoenix.  Doesn't this just speak of magic and mystery?  As soon as I saw it I had to check and yes I was right!  It did take place in New Orleans!  I love this cover!  This also made it into my favorite "New to You Series of 2011."  If interested, you can read my review HERE.


Solstice Wood by Patricia McKillip.  I grabbed this book when I saw it on the shelf in the library.  It is a haunting, beautiful, bittersweet and sweet story and I feel the cover fits it perfectly.


Moonheart by Charles de Lint.  I feel like anything can happen inside these pages when I look at this cover.  And it did.


The Little Country is the first Charles de Lint book I ever read.  It introduced me to Urban Fantasy.  Every time I see this cover I think of how this wonderful, magical genre opened up to me when I read this book.  I also think of Ireland, one of my favorite places in the world.  It is so easy to believe in magic in that country.  I wish I was sitting in that field right now.

Although the community will have defined architectural standards, according to Riley, the plan is to build each of the homes individually rather than building out the entire development in advance, with the goal of giving each home a unique feeling and allowing individual buyers to have more input in the design of their houses.

The film's menacing opening narration is an instant tone setter, preparing the audience for a truly horrifying experience. The voice providing that menace? John Larroquette, then an unknown actor who was referred to Hooper by a friend. Hooper asked Larroquette to imitate Orson Welles for his reading, and while he didn't quite get that, what the actor ultimately provided worked wonders.

If you're one of Putin's friends, you can pretty much get away with robbing the state of millions of dollars, and if you're not, well, you could find yourself getting arrested just for. investigating people who are robbing the state for millions of dollars. All it takes is being selective about who gets punished and just as importantly, who doesn't.

It not measurable Design Your Own Shirt in days and hours! If our loved ones remember us for a few days when we pass away, do we consider that too much remembering? Should they just forget about and move on with their busy lives debating about energy, riots across the globe, health care, T Shirt Design Online gay marriage etc. Don TMt we Clothing Designer all deserve a meaningful remembrance by all those who we touch and make a difference in their lives?

However, that's not to say the life of a male porn star is completely without peril. Thanks to industry veteran Lance Hart, Cracked has already offered you a sneak peek at the surprisingly many occupational hazards of life as a professional boner, ranging from erection issues and horrifying physical discomfort to accidental clown fetishes. Other porn actors agree that earning a living by hiding the sausage on command amounts to a lot more than people think. Apart from the many specific performance issues that come from having to screw random strangers in acrobatic positions for hours while uninterested interns chew gum 10 feet away, there's the social factor; as with any freelance based job, you need to price yourself right and make sure everyone in the production likes you if you want to work for them again.
