Monday LOL Book

Previous LOL books are available at http://jimhines.livejournal.com/tag/lol.

This week's cover took a little more Photoshop work than most, but I think it was worth it. The book is WebMage [Amazon | Mysterious Galaxy], by Kelly McCullough. Kelly's books are on my Want to Read list, and look like they'll appeal to any of us who have done time in the tech support field.



Bonus LOL trivia fact: after enabling Office Assistant on my machine in order to get a screen cap of the "speech bubble," I was unable to completely turn it off again. Trying led to an error message, and I had to manually edit the registry to finally clean that beast from my machine.

hehe.. I can't wait to see what you do to Dead To Me! Plus, I think I'll have a quote from Kelly on the cover so it will be like a two for one!

If properly managed, Clippy-hate could unite warring countries, and even bring SFWA together.

HA! What a great rendition.

Hahaha! This is my favorite of all the LOL books. The humor was worth the registry edit.

Heh ... if it helps, I started with one of my own covers. And I do try to get an OK from the authors whenever possible.

Office Ass. is a vindictive little guy, isn't he?

great book...you really should get to it :D

and I'm glad I'm out of tech support....I don't have as many violent tendencies as I used to. :D

It's strange how that works. I spend much less time lost in violent daydreams now that I'm out of the IT department here...
