Things I never expected to find whilst searching stock photo archives for possible cover photos:
A series of photos of cyborg girls kissing cyborg horses. Whatever the book is that that would make a good cover for, I think I’m fairly safe in saying that I haven’t written it.
I’ve had a look at some of the artist’s other work and it’s gorgeous, I’m just wholly puzzled that the ‘two girls, one horse’ photo showed up when I was searching on something mostly unrelated. (And, yes, I had ‘exclude adult images’ on.)
Actually, the books have no horses in at all, the main reason for that being that I know very little about horses but have been involved in a lot of arguments during roleplaying games, between (a) people who know about horses, (b) people who know what the rules say about horses and are determined to push them to their absolute creaking limits, and (c) people who think they should be allowed to keep a horse in their backpack as long as they’re under their encumbrance limit.
In other news, the first book is slowly being copied over into Lulu’s Word template for the appropriate size book. The slowness is partly my unfamiliarity with Word 2010, and partly due to the book having been converted into AbiWord format and back which for some reason causes the text to keep showing up as a bulleted list. Anyway, it looks like pages in a book, which is making me ridiculously excited.
Also, if it now turns out that most of the hits to this blog are from hopeful people searching on ‘girls kissing horses’, or ‘two girls, one horse’ I will be amused.
