Horror Novel Plot Pitch

I’ve got the perfect plot for a scary novel.

A best selling fantasy novelist, Terby Goodkidd keeps saying rude and daft things about the cover art on his latest book. Little does he know that fantasy cover artists are all actually members of a secret magical society – the occult Libri Operimentum Artifex.

Angered by Goodkidd’s antics, the Libri Operimentum Artifex curse all his books. Now every cover of every one of his books is just hideously coloured random aardvarks.

Eventually he goes mad and attempts to kidnap aardvarks from a local zoo.

  1. Do the aardvarks wear cowboy-type boots with a moderate heel, suitable for riding. I mean, of course they’d wear stilettos at the club, but if they ever have to ride… um… some other four-footed creature into battle, what do they wear?
    It’s not like he hasn’t had naff covers before: https://www.amazon.com/Faith-Fallen-Sword-Truth-Novel-ebook/dp/B004BSG95C/ref=sr_1_24?ie=UTF8&qid=1520041321&sr=8-24&keywords=terry+goodkind

    And also sexist: https://www.amazon.com/Severed-Souls-Richard-Kahlan-Novel-ebook/dp/B00HBPXSYM/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1520041487&sr=8-8&keywords=terry+goodkind


  2. Oops. Sorry for all the linkage in that post.

    Anyway, Terby Aynkind has had many, many worse covers in the past. Which might have been improved by aardvarks.
