Re: [Fantasy_Books] Re: Tanya Huff
- right, that's how I got into tanya huff, I saw the cover for the fifth
quarter, read the back, and decided I wanted it, but I saw that it was a
series, so I bought sing the four quarters, but I take it one step beyond,
If I like it after reading it, I talk to people and see what they would
recommend based on the fact that I liked that book. I usually get a good
list, go back, look at those books, buy the one, or ones that I think look
interesting until Im done with that list, then I go to a list of someone in
that group, who's books I really liked, and start over.

Have you ever watched people in a bookstore? They will pick up the book,
usually based on the cover graphic (unless they are looking for a
specific writer), then turn the book over and read the back. If that is
appealing, they will open the inside cover and read that, then if still
interested, they will read the first page. If that snags them, they
usually buy the book. It happens all of the time. So, that back cover
copy and that front flip page had better be darned entertaining for the
novice author. And you don't get a lot of words to do it in either!
