So, random thought for today, but have you ever considered how differently review-blurbs are treated for books than they are for any other medium?
You might never have thought of this one, but let me give you an example. I just finished yesterday Wrath of Empire by Brian McClellan, which is a great book. I enjoyed it quite a bit and lost some sleep to finishing it. But there was something I couldn’t help but notice. Displayed on the cover is a blurb from Brandon Sanderson that says “Just plain awesome.” in large, bold letters. Brandon’s name is also large and bold. But under that, in much, much smaller print?
“On Promise of Blood.” Which is the first book this author wrote, which came out in 2013.
