Inga | 260 comments Guys, will you accept Obsession Untamed as there is Panther's silhouette on the cover? :)

Obsession Untamed (Feral Warriors, #2) by Pamela Palmer


message 10: by Laura Lulu (last edited Feb 22, 2011 07:29AM) (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments Inga, I have the same question--sorry I can't help you. I'm guessing no on your example, because a silhouette is, according to the dictionary: "A drawing consisting of the outline of something, especially a human profile, filled in with a solid color." In a silhouette, you don't see details of something, just the basic outline of it's shape.


Here are the two I'm considering, do you guys think they both fit, or is one a better choice than the other? For the 2nd one, I'm talking about the black figure in the background, not the girl :)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments I went through my book shelves to find some more silhouette examples:


The first 5 Mercedes Thompsons have alternate covers with a silhouetted Mercy:

Kelly Meding's Dreg City series--make sure to check out the background of book covers--silhouettes like to hide back there. :)

Thanks, Laura Lulu! Your explanation and examples really prove that my choice is incorrect :) no issues here - that's why I asked for an opinion :) will go through my TBR once more!


message 14: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments Inga--go to your TBR, then click "covers" instead of "tables" in the upper right. That will give you your lists with a nice big book cover image, so you don't have to click on each darn book to see it bigger. :)

No, it was great. I didn't realize what a tough time I'd have on this one. All of them really. I'd already read my two "green" cover books, so ?!?! + silhouette, what was I thinking?! LOL!

message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

would this work as a silhouette cover Angel (Maximum Ride, #7) by James Patterson there is tiny silhouette in the background of one of the kids or maybe this alternate cover will work Maximum Ride Angel by James Patterson let me know what you guys think :)


message 25: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23494 comments Well Kat, the 2nd one is more prominent, but as it's the same story it doesn't really matter. Being the cover hunt challenge just use the 2nd cover and that way there are no problems.

Valorie  | 446 comments Just checking in with you Steph to make sure you are ok in Japan. My condolences go you and any others who might be effected by the earthquake/Tsunami.


message 41: by Inga (new)

Inga | 260 comments Congrats, Josie!


message 42: by Laura Lulu (last edited Mar 10, 2011 11:25PM) (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments It looks like the quake was in the north of Japan--Judithe is in Shikoku, which is more south, and Steph is in Okinawa, which is way south, but they're both islands, and I don't know the reaches of the tsunami.

Steph...Judithe...???


message 43: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23494 comments 8.4-8.9 Earthquake makes a damn big tsunami. Asking lots of places to watch out for it.

Effects like fire being felt in Toyko. I'll PM them but they may be busy!!


message 44: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments Steph was just on here, then nothing when the reports came out. Shikoku is closer to the epi, but it's a bigger island than Oki--don't know how close Judithe is to the coast. Okinawa is far south, but it is a teensy tiny island. :(


message 45: by Valorie (new)

Valorie  | 446 comments Well I hope our girls are ok! My prayers are with both Judithe and Steph.


message 46: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23494 comments OK I've PMd them. We'll have to wait & see.

Fingers crossed.


message 47: by Inga (new)

Inga | 260 comments All my positive thoughts and emotions to them!


message 48: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments It says the tsunami warning extends to the Philippines, Indonesia & the Pacific coast of Russia, so I'm guessing they're hunkered down, or whatever it is you do for a tsunami warning--evac to higher ground? Dammit. It's 1:30am here & my alarm goes off in 5 hrs, but I'm guessing GR isn't their top priority right now & we won't be hearing from them for a bit--I'm gonna go night night. And hope we've heard from them by the time I wake up.


message 49: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23494 comments Tsunami warning goes as far as Hawaii too.

And something like 4 million people are without power & they're worried about 5 nuclear power stations, so it could be they are without power, or busy.


message 50: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments Definitely busy. :)
