What do you prefer

Was wondering what everyone’s take is on what they prefer on the cover of book when they purchase it. Are you more attracted to real people or illustrative artwork ? Or do you place no judgement at all on the cover of a fiction novel ? What really attracts you to a novel, if you were looking at it from a marketers point of view ?

Dear readers, see what catches your eye at shutterstock

Be sure to check shutterstock this web site has greats photo ideas that can be used for your book illustrations 5 pics for 50 dollars that’s a hell of a lot cheaper than going through a professional artist. Up to 250000 copies for copied Ed. Here’s some of my ideas…

“Advance of the West”

Sounds good, i usually take forever selecting a title for a book, nearly as long as it takes to write it! lol. Question for you FOTS; or for any other readers reading this; what path should one take in designing their own artwork for their book? or What might the avg. costs be for an illustrator to match your ideas. And would one need copyrights to design their own art reproduction from a picture of another artist? Im having dificulties finding this info…JR

FOTS Fantasy

ADVANCE OF THE WEST. What do you think of the tentative title for Book 1? I have never been closer to choosing something that makes sense and doesn’t sound iffy. I am still open to any suggestions if you think you may have something interesting while reading along.

Just for fun – as these are almost irrelevant at this point in time because they are so far away – here are the other planned titles. These are far more set in stone than the first title. You take them, I will find you! (semi-joking).




#5, F.O.T.S. *I’ll let you know what this stands for, eventually :-)

Lastly, I have noticed there have been some issues with my more recent posts. I am not going to “schedule” posts any more because they either do not show up in…

The Cabin in the Woods (2011)

The Cabin in the Woods (2011)
R; 95 minutes
Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison
★★★★★★★★★★ 10/10

A group of five friends take a break from college and head off to a secluded cabin for the weekend. Things seem a little off but that is overlooked and they take to partying. Suddenly, the fun is cut short by a horrifying attack that no one could have predicted… Except the people planning it.

Ah! Here we have, yet again, the prodigious storytelling of Joss Whedon. The creator of cult classics Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse. Any fan of Whedon knows how notorious he is for his epic plot twists, lovable characters, and endless imagination. For those of you who haven’t seen his work, his unique style comes across quickly and quietly until it hits you like a freight train.

The Cabin in the Woods is simply and without a doubt…

A Guest Blog from Ellie Stewart

I had writer’s block for two years. I finished university and suddenly found myself faced with an open world I couldn’t navigate: I couldn’t see a future in it. This was brought on by many things – one was the delayed grieving for my mother who had died seven years before.

The block was, I think, not so much caused by the fact that I had nothing to write, but because I didn’t think what I had to say was remotely important. I was depressed because I thought I was worthless, and because I thought I was worthless, I felt all of my writing was terrible and of no consequence at all.

I would write dark little poems for myself alone, and showed my writing to no one. Whenever I tried to write anything ‘good’ (that is, not personal and not about what I…
