Welcome to the Covergasm Blog Giveaway Hop, hosted by Herding Cats and Burning Soup!
Since this hop is all about fantastic book covers, I’m going to share two of my favorites with you. In the comments, tell me the most recent book you bought just for the cover, for a chance at a $10 Amazon or B&N gift card.
One book cover that I still remember, eons later, is the original cover from Barbara Hambly’s first book, The Time of the Dark. It’s fantasy, and it’s one of those stories about people crossing back and forth between our world and a place where magic operates. The cover stuck with me because the picture is perfect; a wizard in full regalia, sitting at a card table, with a can of Budweiser in his hand. That’s the story, right there. Except, of course, there’s more.
Another book, one I still have, is Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander. The original cover, not the later plain covers that she uses now. But the first one. Again, it’s a perfect teaser for the story inside; a dirk, a plaid and a broken clock. It’s gorgeous and slightly over-blown, but then so is the story.
Here is my giveaway!
