Covers and Tagline and Blurbs, Oh My!

In case you missed it yesterday, when I did a sort of soft cover reveal on The Writing Spectacle, here's the cover:

I don't know if it's 100% finished, but there it is.

Last night, I sent off the tagline and the blurb to my cover artist so he could incorporate them into additional materials.  You know how when you look at a word or phrase over and over it begins to look weird?  (By the end of the cover decisions, DYING EMBERS looked like it was spelled wrong when it wasn't.)  Well, for me, that tends to bleed over into total uncertainty - where nothing looks right.  I know I spent so much time thinking about the tagline/blurb, and looking at them and tweaking them over the weekend that I kind of went a little loopy.  Hubs and I were making up jokey ones and cracking each other up.

"Burn me once, I'll burn you twice."
"Got that burning sensation?"
"Revenge is a dish best served with a side of fire."
"Fire: It's what's for dinner."
"Who's up for car-be-que?"

So now I'm offering you a chance to be silly.  What's a whacky tagline you would use for a book about revenge and payback and fire and fear?


  1. I'm in the mood to procrastinate so...

    Got matches?

    Have revenge, will burn (from the old Paladin TV show: Have gun, will travel tag) Yeah yeah, it''s no good if I have to explain it. LOL

    It's revenge, and I burned it. (Shake-n-Bake anyone?)

    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned and holding a can of gasoline.

    Aaannnnddddd...I think I'll quit while I'm behind. LOL Have a great Monday.

    1. Glad I could help with that procrastination, Silver. Good ones! And yes, I knew Paladin's 'have gun, will travel'. I'm not THAT young. I remember the Shake n Bake one, too.

      Another one Hubs came up with "Hunka hunka burnin' love" ;o)
