I watched this last night. It’s a terrific video on what makes a bestseller. The speaker is Jonny Geller, who was the agent for Tracy Chevalier who wrote Girl with Pearl Earring. This is a fascinating analysis by a man who has spent his career trying to determine what makes a bestseller.
I have decided to produce a large print edition of A Tale of Hell and Other Works of Horror for the visually challenged. I don’t know when it will be out, hopefully soon. Changing the font to 18-point vs. 12 was easy enough, but now I have to contend with the font that was larger than the original 12-point and the space between paragraphs. What size do I want to make them? The larger print, of course, means more pages, so the price will have to increase accordingly, but I will keep the increase to a minimum. I will also have to review the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines and ensure that I am following their advice. This means I may have to change the font from a serif to a non-serif and make other minor adjustments.
Once I have accomplished changing A Tale of Hell… I will look at adapting Click, The Scent and Other Stories, and Nocturne: Poems of Love, Distance, and the Night, a callous and disinterested lover to large print as well.
