     That cover just makes me want to scream, “RUN!  SHE HUNTS, BUTCHERS, AND EATS CLOWNS!”

    At least I think that’s what the premise of the novel is.

  2. It’s the big shoes she’s thinking about.

    Too bad it’s not a Harlequin Romance.  Would have been perfect.

    Oh, this clown is just so full of himself. 

    You can tell by the jaunty tilt of his cone hat.

    “C’mon, Baby. . .  once you go Clown, you’ll always get down. “

    He must have used some variation of Krusty’s line, “Hey baby, wanna get down with the clown?”

    That Amazon listing is just begging for some customer reviews.

    an arresting image that made you itch to pick it up and start reading.

    No, this one just made me itch.

    Can’t sleep… clowns will eat me.

    It’s the clown shoes tattoos on his feet. Everyone knows they’re real babe magnets.

    Looks like the Crimson Clown, one of the more interesting noir detective characters. I guess by the 60s he was reduced to hitting on chicks in groovy sweaters…

    “Okay, I’ll sleep with you … but only if it’s funny.”

    I prefer a man with blood on his clown suit.

  21. Cowicide says:

    Is that a horn in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?

    HAHAHAHA “The Hungry Ones” a Romance novel!  That like calling Debbie Does Dallas a teen comedy.

  23. rattypilgrim says:

    But the plot twist is she’s a serial clown killer. Spends a lot of time in Florida and never misses a Cirque du Solei when it’s in town.

    Big feet, tiny . . . .
