I KNEW I should have gone with The Sinner’s Guide to Amish Vampires in Space.

I was having lots of fun scrolling through this list of Worst Christian Book Covers of 2013.  A couple of favorites:

and this:

and of course this, which should win all the prizes ever, for everything, but most of all for the most courageous use of “spray paint” tool in a professional setting:

 

“Most intelligently designed” indeed.

But then I got to #7 on the list of Worst Christian Book Covers of 2013, and what to my wondering eyes should appear but A COVER THAT LOOKS VERY, VERY FAMILIAR:

A sign your priest may be WAY too involved in your sex life.

    Wow, that just doubles the awesomeness level of those pint glasses I won!

    Oh, you have really hit the big time now. That is awesome!

    Your comment on Becky Wooley’s cover made me laugh and laugh. Thanks!
    (And props for the “Army of Darkness” reference.)

    Sorry for your…um…loss, Simcha. But it was a hard won victory, there were lots of worthy contenders…I feel like we all really bonded out there. Better luck next year! :)

    The “Amish Vampires in Space” cover would definitely get a click from me on Netflix.

    What? Whoever thought that was a bad cover simply hates Christian books. Your cover is awesome. Granted, I can see how someone might think things were a little out of hand if you and your husband were literally naked, together, at the confessional. :)

    Please include a chain saw in your next book. Some how, I know you can do it.

    Well, crap! I was just amused by the cover – now I actually want to read the book. Although, I would kind of prefer to read the chainsaw version. I mean: chainsaw. I was personally inspired by the list to begin working on my magnum (read: solo) opus, “Dysenteric Amish Zombies Along the Oregon Trail in Space: A Love Story.” I welcome any and all cover suggestions.
