I am done with the first step of getting my novelette ready to publish. But I am having trouble with the back cover.
I remember in an English class, the one on theory, where my teacher said that we seldom read ANYTHING that we don’t know anything about.
We always have some idea of what to expect. It is packaged in some way, or has something on the cover that tells us how we are supposed to read it
written in separate lines
We know to take them
seriously and soberly
as we read
and then there are all kinds of other conventions. A whole language before you even get to the language. Is it bound in cardboard or on a spiral coil? How does the paper feel/ Are there colors?
These are all things I am having to take into consideration. It’s pretty exciting.
