Anyway, here is an eclectic batch of book covers from the new lot I downloaded today. I have actually read so of these so I can recommend them. As for the rest, the standard rules apply: I cannot guarantee a good read, only that I liked the cover artwork.

A Craft Affair

Ok, I so let the side down by not going to this (sorry Lucy!) but in my defense I was sick, snotty & generally not pleasant to be around.

So, instead of writing my own review, I have to defer to someone who was actually there and a much better writer than I… Maddie of lil’ magoolie.
