New American Zen Cover

(Photoshopping courtesy of my sister Alicia Morgan of Last Left Turn B4 Hooterville.)

This is the visual I'm going with for the new cover of the American Zen Kindle edition (I wish it was a Les Paul Stratocaster, which is Mike's guitar, instead of a Gibson, but you take what you can get). I think it just about sums up the most important abstracts of the book. Alicia's looking for a better, more Zen-like font than the Presidential one I've been using. Then when she inserts the title into the .jpeg, I'll upload it. It'll make for a more professional-looking cover. After all, there are approximately 650,000 titles on Kindle alone, so one must make their work stand out in some way.

I also just reduced the price from $9.99 to $4.99 and sales are already picking up. So please give it a try. Once again, you can download a free 50 page sample to help you make up your mind as to whether or not to purchase it. I've also posted a review of it that's actually an expanded synopsis to further give you an idea of what it's about.

IS it an alternate universe book? Last I looked in this universe Leo Fender is the man who designed and built the Stratocaster, while Gibson were the folks who made the Les Paul designed of course by Les himself...

Actually, the guy who designed the Stratocaster for Fender died 3 or 4 years ago. He moonlighted in a Country and Western band and apparently the Telecaster's sharp edges and weight get tiresome after a few hours of playing on stage. Ironically, the Strat was used by country musicicans and on Lawrence Welk until Jimi Hendrix made it famous for rock musicians; now, country guitarists won't touch a Strat with a ten-foot pole, or so I've heard!

Looking forward to reading your book!

You're right. I meant to say Leo Fender.
