If you read my blog from a few weeks ago, you know that I plan to release my first book as an eBook because of the large number of color graphics.

Printing that much color is expensive, and I can’t be selling my first book for $35, so an electronic release is the way to go.

Below is the cover I designed ( I didn’t draw it though). The only element missing from the mock up is the subtitle, and since it explains what the book is about, I didn’t want to show it quite yet.

Plus, I still need to work out the legal details with the clown union, Justin Bieber, and the estate of Thomas Jefferson.

Please let me know what you think – I would really appreciate it!

Fantastic cover. I have no idea what the book is about though. I’m sure it will make sense when you post the rest of the title. 😀

Great pulp cover. I have no clue what’s inside. I’m guessing a horror story also. 😈

Well Fat Man, you seem to have produced a book cover that is quite good. Congratulations. I am looking forward to reading it, or having Brian read it to me.

P.S. Lois must die.

That toaster oven looks really nasty. What’s the book about? It’s very disturbing. 😯

Ok. I personally think it is a bit cartoonish, but I don’t know what you are going for, so I will have to wait for the book. when is it coming out?

I think it needs to be more professional for your first attempt at a book. A lot of people will be browsing through the eBook section and you want yours to stand out.

Yep. You need something that really jumps out at the readers who are browsing for something to read.

I think it’s just interesting enough and different enough for it to catch someone’s attention.

It’s funny, but I don’t know if it would make me buy the book. Your cover may need to be more exciting. Even the bad books sell when you put a action filled cover on it.

I would buy this based on the cover. It’s pretty funny and I would want to know what’s inside. 😯

Terrific cover. Does it have a back cover too? And what the frack is this book about? What is that secret subtitle? 😎

I like it, but I hope the subtitle explains the illustration because even though its funny, it makes no sense…or maybe that’s the point?

That’s a really good cover? if you drew it, you might have a career as an illustrator.

I love it and can’t wait to read it. I need a good laugh. It is funny, right? It’s not a serious book, is it? 😯

Shouldn’t it be more professional? it looks like a comic book from the 1950s. is that the look you are going for? if not, consider changing it. 💡

7.5. You lose 2.5 because there is nothing cooking in the oven, and the market list on the fridge door is blank. Please correct ASAP.
