DIE AND STAY DEAD Cover Art Discussion

One of my favorite book websites on the Internet is All Things Urban Fantasy. I even did a Top 10 list for them back when Dying Is My Business was released. Every week they run a feature called Cover Art Coverage, in which they examine the covers of forthcoming urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and occasionally horror novels and weigh in with their opinions. (I’ll admit to loving the terrible covers as much as — or sometimes even more than — the good ones!) (I’ll also admit to hoping that one day they will invite me to be a guest Cover Art Coverage judge!)

Last year, All Things Urban Fantasy, or ATUF to the cool kids, gave unanimous thumbs up to Dying Is My Business‘s cover art. (You can see here.) So how did they rate the cover art for the sequel, Die and Stay Dead, in their most recent Cover Art Coverage? Well, one of the judges, Julia, calls the art ”gorgeous,” but the other two, Libbie and Kristina, seem to feel a bit more meh about it. Although Libbie does say it has “a nice creepy feel to it,” which is cool. Click through to read the whole thing.

So what do you think of Die and Stay Dead‘s cover art, which you can see if you click over? Do you agree with the good folks at ATUF, or do you have your own opinion? (Imagine that, someone on the Internet with opinions!) Sound off, folks!
