Usually I put these in the Announcements section, lol, but I wanted to put it here today. I'll be announcing this tomorrow on my blog, bu I always like to share with you guys first. :-)

As many of you may know, I used a different cover designer on the last two books of my Alex & Fiona series than I did on the first one. I've never really "liked" the cover to A Midnight Infatuation... much less loved it like the last two.

Sooooo, I've been working with the artist and cover designer of the last two to come up with a brand spanking new cover for a re-release of A Midnight Infatuation!!!

It will take a few weeks for the new cover to trickle its way down through the book-selling systems and start showing up on bookstore sites, but the cover will be available immediately on my site. And it will be the one you get if you order all three during my sale in November.

So, here it is! The drawing was by the same artist as the other two and the design is from the same cover designer. It really makes this a "set."

I have to agree with you. I did like the other cover, but it just doesn't match the others and I'd like a match set. I'm anal that way. I really get upset to see author's change the covers in the middle of the series. It drives me insane.

Have you seen the newest Betsy book by MaryJanice Davidson (Undead and Unworthy)? I just hate that cover. I'm going to finally read the book tomorrow, but I really don't like the cover.

Dani

Yep! That's actually the one that I was thinking about when I wrote my post. The book is great and I loved it, but I hated the cover. She said that she changed it because the story took a different turn. I still don't like the cover though. They could have made it different.

I love the new cover for A Midnight Infatuation Christie. I have the original cover which I really like as well.

Dani - I don't care what kind of new direction the book went, the cover is terrible. It makes Betsy look like some grunge teenager rather than the expensive shoe-loving Queen of the Undead.

I'm going by the library today to return From Dead to Worse and pick up Undead and Unworthy. Hopefully it will be worth the read like the others were. I'll just be sure to avoid looking at that raunchy cover. LOL!

Bec - Thanks so much dear! :-)

I understand what you're saying completely and totally agree. They should have made it a high fashion cover to fit more with her personality than use this one.

How did you like From Dead to Worse? I loved it, but then again I love all Charlaine's Sookie books. Laugh it Up fuzball

Hold up! You haven't read the Betsy series either? Say it isn't so! LOL!

I enjoyed From Dead to Worse. It didn't have as much action or any sex like the others, so that was kind of a let down. But, I love all the Sookie books and this one is no different. I definitely liked how it ended with Hunter.

I felt bad for Quinn though.

OMG!!! I've got to get you into those too! They are hilarious. You will laugh your a$$ off at her antics.

I loved Hunter! I think that we're going to be seeing more of him in the books (well, at least I hope so anyway).

I felt bad for Quinn in a way, but then again, he could have found a way to contact her. He's not without resources.

Yeah the Betsy books are totally awesome. She is so funny!

I felt bad for Quinn at first but now that I've re-read From Dead to Worse I don't feel sorry for him at all. As for his family, the sister and mother are absolute cows! LOL

Those two drove me nuts! It was none of their business that Sookie and Quinn broke up. He made his choices and she made hers and I happen to agree with her choice! :biggrin:

Okay, I'm going to throw out a little speculation here since Hunter was mentioned in previous posts. What if Sookie and Hunter's dad end up together? How much you want to bet that it's a possibility? I mean, there's a reason that he was mentioned now and not before.

ChristieSilvers
October 3rd, 2008, 06:27 PM
You know, I was thinking the same thing about Hunter's dad when I read the ending. BUT, didn't Charlaine mention before that Sookie would end up with someone that she's known for a long time? If that's true, then it can't be Hunter's dad.

Dani

It's been a while since I've been to her boards, but I don't remember hearing that. Last I remember is she was teasing us with maybe we haven't met him yet. I'll have to pop in there and snoop around. :biggrin:

I don't remember if I saw it on her boards or on the boards for True Blood. But, I know I saw it somewhere. LOL!

Who knows anymore, she's probably changed her mind again about it. The one thing that she's been adamant about it the fact that Sookie will never become a vampire. Now whether she'll end up with one (seeing that she won't be one) remains to be seen.

I don't know if Bill will ever get back into Sookie's good books. As for Eric, she may end up with him who knows! Sam would be my choice in the show but in the books I don't know who to pick. I loved Quinn for a while but I've gone off him a bit since From Dead to Worse. LOL

I don't know about Bill either. I think he's pretty much out. Eric, on the other hand, is my big choice. Sam would be my second choice.

Dani
October 5th, 2008, 08:55 PM
To me, Bill has already redeemed himself. I mean, did you hear Eric say that he'd die for her? I didn't, but I certainly heard Bill say that. Oh yeah, uh huh, that's my Bill!! I'm a total Bill fan. I love Eric too, but Bill has my heart. Laugh it Up fuzball

Sam would be great for Sookie.

I know Bill would die for her but it doesn't make what he did right. We all know you're a total Bill fan Dani.

Poor Bill. I think Bill just tries too hard, and Sookie is just too pissed with him. Not to mention that she's stubborn and hard headed (like me, lol).

I wouldn't be disappointed if she ended up with Bill, but I think she'd have hotter sex with Eric. ;-) And Sam would be more stable than the vamps.

It will be fun to see how it all ends though.

Hotter sex is what Sookie definitely needs. She hasn't had sex with Sam yet. Hopefully that happens in one of the upcoming books.

She already had hotter sex with Eric! I'd love to see what will happen now that he remembers it though. :devil:

Yes, it will be interesting to see what happens now that he remembers his time with her. It's fun to speculate who she'll end up with and everyone has their favorite choice. Only time will tell! :-)

Book 4 was a great book. The others are really good as well. You'll eventually have the money to buy them and you'll have them read in no time at all. LOL
