So, what do you think?



This title should be out close to the end of November. One of our tentative cover designs is shown here. As always, impressions and color suggestions welcome!

My Sarah Palin blog post title experiment didn't seem to work, yet. Stat counter reports marginally higher than average traffic, but none relates to the title of yesterday's post.

I vaguely recall reading somewhere that it was bad blogger etiquette to plant titles like I did just to boost traffic.

*******************

Had a scare this morning. We had a propane pipeline right-of-way inspector out here this morning. His map showed the pipeline going down our access road next to our pig, chicken, and goat fences-too close to the pipeline. He was getting ready to tell us we had to move all the fence lines 35 feet.

I asked him is this easement would be on our deed, and he said yes-but its not. There is also no marker for the pipeline which there should have been. I remembered a marker down the street so we went looking for it. Sure enough, the map was wrong and our property is ours.

Oremus pro invicem!

Put the author's name below the graphic on the cover. Too busy with the one on top of the other, and both lose their impact.

I like the spine - do you consistently format that way? If yes, good, I'm a big fan of being able to quickly spot titles from a reliable publisher, makes it easy to home in on good picks when scanning the shelves at library or bookstore.
