Book Cover Idea


The first paragraph goes like this:

I have to admit, it was beautiful. The spit-shined soldiers doffed their black peaked caps just like they were ordered to, exposing their razor-cut pates to the gentle rain. The lacrimose bureaucrats, shuffling along the parapet with a studied pathos, mumbled among themselves about the latest poll numbers burning a hole in the front pages. And there I was, an old anarchist who knew too much and cared too little, sprawled on the marbled steps of St. Stephen's, leaking blood in artful pools amid shattered limbs no one was going to put back together.

T'wasn't always so. There was a time when those bilious cretins trembled at the sound of my footsteps alone. A mere glance with upraised eyebrow would cause rivulets of sweat to cascade from their wizened faces. Ah, the power I held over them. Each and every one a eunuch begging for a mere morsel of favor or indulgence on my part. But now I lay broken upon the marble steps and none lift a hand in succor or friendship. T'wasn't always so!

Hands down, Apple's app store wins by a mile. It's a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I'm not sure I'd want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
