    it is nice to see a direct discussion on topics that authors actually think about—covers, characters, etc.

    Of the covers I think the twisted pencil stands out but the text is horribly placed. In my humble opinion of course. 🙂 I went with a very straightforward cover because I really wanted to avoid anything that did not look serious or that did look a bit… silly.

    I found the YA discussion interesting, as I was told my book could be considered YA as a coming of age story.

    PS – Was going to submit my book for review but as you are backlogged I thought I’d just read your articles and say hi.
