*meant to say 'do you like my book's back cover?' Self-publishing my book soon. Here is the back cover. I have realized the importance of the back cover of the book. And the importance of setting the context of the story before your readers get to that first page. I should have guessed as much, as many stories have beginnings that open questions or a just outright boring, but the promise of more to come gives the reader a kind of "bolstered patience" ... I know it does for me. Actually, I think it's quite interesting to read something about the story before you make it to the front page. In a sense, what's written on the back or your book's description is every bit as important as the opening chapter. Can any of you think of a book you might not have finished if you hadn't had prior information about the book (besides a reference, I mean)?
