Poll Results and Sneak Peek of "The Fool's Illusion"

Warning: This post may contain content or links to content considered to be obscene by some viewers.

Hello, everybody!

At the poll for the lettering style for my upcoming short fiction collection, The Fool's Illusion, it looks like "Twisted Roman" won by 4 to 0 votes!  So "Twisted Roman" style it will be for the title on the cover. 

"Twisted Roman" style lettering for The Fool's Illusion book cover title

Thank you all for voting.  It helps me determine which will be the more efficient lettering style for you readers and lovers of books out there.  I don't want to just make myself happy with massive sales, but I want to make you readers (and you know who you are) happy with your reading experience and that includes the cover of the book when and if (which I hope many of you will!) you select my book to purchase. 

Do you want an idea of what my book will cover (e.g. themes, genres and subgenres)?  Then the links below may interest you. The first is from a blog posting I did for Horror Addicts' online con which includes a free excerpt of the title story.  The last three (all from past posts of this blog) add up to one whole free short story to be included in the book!  You'll be getting a shrunken head start before most people who will buy my book and so you can proudly say that you read it before it was even published!

I'm still working on the illustration but hope to have it done by next week so I can post it here for you to look at and to provide any comments on it you may have. 

Until next week . . .

  1. Interesting lettering. If you're going to sell your book on Amazon, remember, the title has to be visible in that tiny box they give you to showcase your book.

    1. I was just reading about that in an article from Amazon's Create Space, in fact. Thanks for letting me know anyway. I'll have to scale the title/lettering size down to do that.
