Books, especially book covers

This post will be given in two parts Yesterday I set my mind on finishing the cover for By Sword, By Right and I'm very pleased with how it turned out! Now I am trying to decide between releasing this in hardcover for $13.99, or in softcover for $9.99. It is approximately 140 pages, not a large book but a fun size.

The original short stories that I wrote exclusively for this book include two science fiction pieces that I am really excited about:
Abacus One is a futuristic missionary tale of a world off-limits to Christians. One daring space captain takes the risk to bring the gospel to the isolated and unreached children from Earth.
The World Reborn is an imaginative, original take on space travel, where individuals travel from place to place inside space bubbles.
Carriage Angel ...I wrote this one for myself and those fans of mine who enjoy romance as well as jaunts a hundred years into the past.

Swords of the Six (AMG Publishers)
I know many of you are as eager as I am for my AMG novels to release. If you would like to pre-order the new expanded The Sword of the Dragon-book 1-Swords of the Six, it is available on amazon for a whopping $10.19 per copy! Pre-order by Click Here

Please ignore the fact that the wrong cover image is up there. AMG is creating a different, more snazzy cover.

Go with hardback! I'd rather spend the extra 3 bucks if the book will last longer ;)

I don't know which to choose... I sort of agree with Beorn, but at the same time there's something enticing about a nice, clean paperback...

Well, just do what you think you should do. The book will be great either way. :)

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
