boaters and outdoor enthusiasts. I am told because the book blends humor, adventure, inner reflection, and environmental information, comparable books include Bill Bryson’s Walk in the Woods, Cheryl Strayed’s Wild, and Keith Foskett’s Balancing on Blue.
So, now what?
I received excellent feedback on both covers, comments I intend to share with the designers. However, the ability to address these two critical observations could be the tie-breaker.
Porthole: Many found the subtitle, “Romance, Adventure, and Advocacy on the Great Lakes” too difficult to read. Since the subtitle describes the book, this is NOT GOOD.
Chart: Several women thought the caliper resembled a medical instrument used in surgery. This, too, is NOT GOOD. We will need to find a different navigational tool if we use this cover.
Like the majority of women, I voted for the porthole, Rubin for the chart. And while we bet a buck on the outcome of the vote, since it’s a tie, no money will exchange hands. That’s probably a good thing.
Thank you so much for joining me on the journey! If you’d like to read a few of the many thoughtful comments I received in addition to those posted following the February 1st blog, see below.
