How many copies of the same book can I legally purchase?

June 30, 2011

Cuz I think I'm hitting the limit.

The new found interest in creating my own book covers was inspired by an amazing marketing scheme by Penguin.

They are re-releasing classics with gorgeous new cover art. They are calling them the Classics Deluxe Editions and you can buy them all on Amazon. Just saying.

Okay this isn't one of the new Classics Deluxe...i just love it. I mean come on. All any of us want in all the Austin books if for them to just "Come on and kiss already!!!" Amen. 

Aren't they amazing? I'm in love and will soon own yet another copy of P and P, Persuasion, The Secret Garden, Wuthering Heights...

Not sure about this yet...

It could turn out to be another one of my odd ideas that doesn't pan out :-)

I recently started reading Patricia Briggs and really like her writing...but I can't stand the cover art. Weird, I know.

So I got the brilliant idea to make covers for them. I've made two now and have a better idea of how to proceed and how to make them easier to fit on the books.

I'm going to make some little plates with the name of the book and author tomorrow, but what do you think so far?


New and improved:

No more skanky chick! (It really is weird, in the books the girls aren't skanky and there is no sex. Not sure what's up with the cover)

What do you think? I'll add more pics when I get the name plates added on.

But I like em!

Update -

Here they are with name plates. Not perfect of course, just getting an idea of how to proceed.

I won!!!!


I won!!! I started entering giveaways on Goodreads and I finally won! I don't actually know much about the book, hopefully it's not junk (still, it's free so...). I guess they will send it to me, i will read it and then I post a review on the Goodreads.

It's called The Woodcutter. Here is the rundown:

"Cinderella is dead and one of Odin’s hellhounds has gone rogue. The Woodcutter, protector of peace between the Twelve Kingdoms of Man and the Realm of Faerie, is charged with finding the beast and returning him to the Wild Hunt. Unfortunately, it seems the forces of evil have other plans.

Leaving his beloved wife and the comforts of his quiet home, the Woodcutter shoulders his ax and begins a journey to set things right. Instead, he finds a pixie dust trade raging out of control and a power hungry Wicked Queen who will stop at nothing to take over the world. The lives of Snow White, Rapunzel, and Little Red Riding Hood are at stake in this dark, fairytale mash-up—and the Woodcutter is the only one who can help them.
It is a race against time as the Woodcutter travels east of the sun and west of the moon, up beanstalks and down to the bowels of the earth to unravel a mystery that can only be described as Grimm."

I'm excited! I will post the review on here when I'm done.
