I got the final cover for Barnum’s Revenge today. It’s almost the same. Karen moved my name and changed the quote on the front.

I’m biased, of course, but I think it looks even better now.

Echelon Press gave me some e-versions of the book to give away to reviewers. If you’d like a copy, please let me know, either in a message here, or via email: jon@acatofninetales.com. Don’t forget to let me know which e-format you need (and where you would post your review).

As I mentioned before, I like this version better too, specifically for the point that they moved your name up above Snowy, and the font looks larger. That does several things, one, since the sky is darker, it makes your name pop more on the screen. Also, you're not covering Snowy, and let's be honest, he'd be a bit indignant about being covered up by your name, wouldn't he. Lastly, the larger font gives your name more prominence, and hey, it's a selling point, is it not?

Now, if Amazon can just make the kindle version available...

Thanks, Ed :)

I have the .mobi version for Kindle, but I think it takes a few days for e-Books to actually show up on Amazon (at least, it did when Fur-Face came out).

I'm being patient. Besides, I should be finishing this damn short story. I keep telling myself, just one more night, and I'll be done. Been 5 nights going now. Surely, I'll get it done soon, right?

Maybe it's a book, not a story :)

That would be unfortunate, since I plan on submitting it to an anthology by next friday and its got a limit of 6000 words.

I would love to review Barnum's Revenge - I have a review blog at http://lifeinreview.labarc.com and I also post my reviews to Goodreads, my fb, and twitter. If it's not professional enough and you have limited copies, I understand, no worries. :)

No problem, Laura. I set aside 5 copies for my regular readers. Let me know your email address, or if you prefer, email me at jon@acatofninetales.com and I'll send you a copy.

Don't forget to tell me which e-reader you use.

Thanks :)

Perhaps you noticed the change of quote on the front cover? ;)

Yeah, I saw that. I'm trying to figure out what ELSE seems different to me. Probably just me being insane, as usual.

Oh! That's it! I just clicked back in time to your last cover post. The background wasn't blue. Now the sky is blue fading to gold/orange. Before it was more taupe fading to pink.

Congrats again. This is reminding me that I never posted a review for Fur-face! :( Sorry & I will try to do that soon!
