[quote=""LadyB""]Definitely not a real pendant. In which case, why pick something so ugly when the title of the book is The Pendant? People are going to focus on it! Well that's just my opinion anyway.[/quote]

It really is unattractive, isn't it? And very unnatural looking.

Every time I come in here, I find myself hoping that when The Ax and the Vase sells, they'll just throw an inanimate object or two on the cover and leave it. Aieeeeee.

I think she was inside somewhere with big windows?
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

It's another of those commonly used Shutterstock images. I always see it if I go browsing there!

Somewhere in this thread I know there's been some posted, by Mythica I think.

I have a thought for making it easier to find the titles already mentioned. In each new message we post in the thread, there's an option to title the message. Use the title of the book(s) being mentioned in the message, enabling searching by title?

Definitely. I like the dress better in red.

By the way that is a good idea, I'll try to remember to put book titles in the post title from now on.

Heee, she is. I like the red better as well. I'm sure I've seen it somewhere else before besides these two.
