I added a new cover to my website and Goodreads for the third book of The Arros Chronicles. The book isn’t done, but the cover art was and I figured I’d get a little preliminary advertising out there. Here’s the cover I posted.
I’m looking at the cover on Goodreads, and at the tabs underneath for getting the book from an online store, and I wonder what would come up for my not yet finished book. So I click on Amazon. This book comes up.
Son of a b@#$h. I didn’t bother googling the title for my book. Every title is already taken by somebody, somewhere. Another book out there with a book and an amulet on the cover…likely. One that also has a similar title…son of a b#$@h. I’ve never heard of the book or the author. The subject matter has no similarity. Still, what are the odds? I think I’ll go with my original title: Jewel of the Empire. I’m sure somebody else (a bunch of somebodies) has used that title too, but hopefully not with matching (sort of) cover art.
