One of my favourite authors

Quick background - Jayne of Dear Author (I keep wanting to type Dear Arthur - funny that because he's not really - to me that is. I'm sure he is to Lisa) has a review of Mistress of Willowvale by Patricia Veryan. In the comments Renee and I carried on and discussed the covers of Dedicated Villian

For Renee

This one is gorgeous!!!

Don't like this one

But I sure am glad we didn't get this one!!!!!!! (ROTFL)

And in other news - speaking of favourite authors. I have a new campaign and you can all help.
Just drop over to Nocturnal Wonderings and tell Cindy to "Read One Summer first"
I need everyone to help me now.

'til later

You can tell I took my silly pill.

See... I told you it was beautiful. In fact all the hardbacks had beautiful covers as I recall. Much better than the PB cover. Wow, what is that ugly thing (cover #3)? He has a mustache? eewwww.

You are too funny (about arthur instead of author)! I need me some of those little pills.

Yes, I told Cindy that One Summer was a keeper :).

ReneeW said...

BTW, thanks for posting such a nice big image. I may steal it.

Kristie (J) said...

Renee: Her hardcover covers are gorgeous aren't they. I was so (and still am) so nutty about her books, once I discovered them I bought them in both. I have HC copies of
Poor Splendid Wings
Some Brief Folly
The Noblest Frailty
Married Past Redemption
A Shadow's Bliss
Ask Me No Questions
Had We Never Loved
Never Doubt I Loved
Mandarin of Mayfair (talk about your gorgeous cover!)
Sadly - at the moment my scanner is out of commision but as soon as I get it back working again, I'll scan and post them.

And feel free to steal it - since that's what I did :) I don't have that one in HC - only the not so nice PB.

Mailyn said...

Oh that first cover sure is pretty!

Kristie (J) said...

Mailyn: Isn't it just though?? Wait 'til I get the scan back on line (somehow I 'broke' a port or something), then you can see some of her other ones too.

Kris said...

That cover is pretty, thanks for sharing. The others are kind of scary, yikes.

Devon said...

Oh Lordy I love the German one. Is she biting his hand? That is so bizarre.

Kristie (J) said...

Devon: it looks like she is doesn't it - thus giving rise to the expression 'biting the hand that feeds you'

Kris: she really does have great covers on some of her books. Others not so good, but mostly good!
