Who cares about cover much these days, they should only start writing things better again.

eh, not a bad idea, i guess. I guess they have some problem of quantity over quality, though

Although I do agree with the phrase "don't judge a book by its cover" I really don't think it applies here!!

I mean, the content of the book is important, first and foremost, but nowadays you also want it in a nice looking wrapper, especially with all the recent awesome cover-arts being released.

If BL are so tight and don't want to spend an awful lot of on "professional artists" for simple e-shorts, since said artists would definitely charge a penny for a good cover, at least BL could have found some fan-artists who would do a heck of a better job than these current covers! And they would do it for free, just so they get their work out in the open!

That moustache....I'm in tears here, pure tears.

They are some seriously bad covers.

But that moustache is EPIC.

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.

Further proof of the "improved" website.
I think it's Counter, Lyons, Counter, Robbie McNiven, Justin D. Hill, and Chris Dows, respectively.
