learning

Posted mainly to show off the current "music"

So, dirkdada has been offering me some (appreciated, despite the appearance, really) marketing advice that I’d like to get additional feedback on. Mind, I may ignore it anyway, but still...

Point one: White on Black text with no graphics is not the best cover for a webcomic’s print edition.
Point two: Putting “anthology” in the title is death to sales.

Discussion?

On a not really related note, why do publishers feel the need to put “a novel” on the cover of books these days? Is the average reader too ignorant to figure out what a book is? They are reading, after all. Or is it to help the stockers at B&N?

This is a major pet peeve of mine. I can usually figure out from context, if not actually from content, whether a book is a novel or a biography or a collection of recipes.
