Folks have been asking and I’ve been thinking about a T-shirt. I want it to have potential to be a cool saying on its own (so people actually want it) as well as promo for the book. I know I want the title, but do we need anything else? I’d like your input.
OPTION 1: TITLE ONLY
Slap the title as it appears on the book on a black shirt. Font is brown or the green of what’s on the book’s cover.
OPTION 2: I AM NOT
I had someone say that the parents might be concerned if their kids were walking around with a shirt proclaiming they were servants of a dark god. Part of me says, yeah! Another part says, well, I guess I can see their point. The suggested solution was to add the words “I am not a” in front of the title in smaller font. It works. But it also feels like a copy cat of Dan Wells’ marvelous shirt which is just the title of his book.
OPTION 3: TITLE, SUBTITLE
In this version you get the bang of the title, but then you make it clear we’re talking about a book, not minions. So you have the title as above in big letters, then underneath or on top in smaller font you have:
- Read it!
- Eat. Sleep. Read.
- An Epic Fantasy
- The humans are being ranched…
- It’s story time, kiddies…
So here’s where I need your help. Let me know which option you like best and if you have any ideas for option 3, please share them!!!
