Second Life Book Cover Meme: Ready For My Launch

1 The Girl With The Cupcake Tattoo

Well, it took me all day, but I finally managed to get into Second Life to shoot the cover for my new book. Didn’t you know I’m a budding author? The plot is…well, there really isn’t one. It’s just about the frustrations of a forgetful cook. I have to say I don’t tend to lose recipes; I just forget to put the coconut in the ANZAC bikkies 😉

This week’s Monday Meme from Miss Berry is a really fun one. I must say coming up with a book to spoof was kind of hard, but I thought back to the recent book meme and used a book by one of my favourite authors as my inspiration.

I am talking about Stieg Larsson and the first of his Millenium trilogy, “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.” The story is dark, but the characters are unforgettable and I love Larsson’s style of writing. The fact that all three novels of the trilogy weren’t discovered and published until after his death just left me wanting more from this talented writer. So, as my tribute to him I chose to parody my favourite of the three.

There have been several reprints and covers for this book, but I chose the one that is sitting on my bookshelf.

If you want to play along or check out the other entries for this meme, here’s what you need to do:

Meme instructions: Create a book cover to show your avatar in fiction. It does not have to be based on a real book, it can be one that you make up. Don’t forget to leave a link to your cover in the comments (of this post) and share it in the Blog Memes flickr group.

If you would like an autographed copy, I’ll be doing a signing at Garages & Ignoble on Tuesday from 10:00 – 10:15.
