I'm baaaaaaack... (cue the scary music)

The week of no internet is over, and I have returned alive, if not victorious. I'll get to answering everyone's questions and comments when I get home from work tonight (maybe), but I thought Doug should have an immediate answer:

A cover flat is just that: a flat version of the cover, unattached to a book, which has the front, spine and back. On the white underside you can typically find information on the marketing campaign. They can be useful or totally useless depending on whether you have the imagination or the space for them.

I'd find you a picture, Doug, but my scanner does not work and I'm a wee bit too tired to search the internet. If anyone has a picture readily available would you offer up a link? Think of it as free advertising.

Oh, and if anyone can tell me why the hell my bravenet counter spiked yesterday I would be very appreciative. I have this sudden fear that I've somehow got attached to a porn site.

someone must have mentioned your Useful Post somewhere big.

I've got a jpg of a coverflat. Where should I send it?

I checked Technorati for you, BSC. Miss Snark linked you - that must be it.
And welcome back to the Intarwebnet!

Kate R said...

how do you DO that, Beth???

Beth said...

You just go to technorati.com and put the URL into the search box. Easy peasey.

Kate, just email me here and I'll post the image.

Beth, you rock. Thanks. I technorati-ed myself earlier and it didn't pull up the link, so I was suddenly leaving in fear that it wasn't that Google didn't ping (which could only be bad, or so my little paranoid self thought).

Kate, I don't think that link works (stupid internet), so you can email me at bookseller dot chick at gmail dot com.

Not sure if it was because of me, but I did email Miss Snark and suggest that she link to you.

Jason, wow. Thanks. I, um...yeah. Thanks.
