Dodging Eros Cover Art Stand-Off, Day 2


The original artwork for your cover image is inside this portfolio. Meet our demands or risk having this and all the digital files disappear forever.

 
The Art Dept. demands recognition! They want buzz. They want anticipation. They want a swell of word-of-mouth chatter to grow into an avalanche of interest in the masterpiece of cover art they have created with their inspired genius. Dire consequences for my book and me if I don't deliver.

This author would appreciate your help in satisfying them by leaving a guess in a comment for one or more of the Dodging Eros Cover Reveal Contest clues posted at BlerdyBingeReader.blogspot.com during the original four days of the contest (Saturday 10/25/2014--Tuesday 10/28/2014).

Thank you!

When reading the clues, consider word associations, literal, figurative, and slang meanings from different angles; mainstream and fringe interpretations.
Day One Clues
          First Significant Image Component:

  • This sloped joint can be found beside most roads, and comes with its own blade.
  • This limb is also an action, a financial services acronym or part of a garment. It can be a division of a larger group or the first half of a metaphor.

Dodging Eros Cover Reveal Contest Details

Dodging Eros, Through Past, Present and Pleasure by Cardyn Brooks is something different. It's an unconventional erotic novel as a social commentary romp with elements of spoof and theater of the absurd; a mashup of subversive riffs on love. Entitlement, privilege, and identity have shaped the politics of pleasure and the risks and rewards of loving and being loved for generations. Dodging Eros serves these layers in a provocative brain dessert for adults.

Participants must be at least 18 years old and are responsible for any and all applicable income declaration requirements and taxes, and for providing valid, government-issued proof of identity, age, and eligibility. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited by law.

What Women Want

Returning Champion: "Let's try 'Archaic Gender Stereotypes' for two hundred, please, Alex."


Confession: The media's tone-deaf obliviousness continues to astound me. Time to donate more to MissRepresentation.org. 

BATAF: All women want the same things, and sexism propagated by women undercuts the legitimacy of other people's valid outrage.
