Actually, I went ahead and got all 3 of Steve's books. $4.50 right now at Smashwords can't be beat.

Now that I do...I'm going to read his other books, and pay for them.

Losing Role is a very good character study, and those who like that type of book will enjoy this one a lot.

Anyone got a recommendation on which of Anderson's books to read next?
Thanks, Trebro. I appreciate the read. If you're the one who left the nice review on Smashwords, I appreciate it all the more.

As for my other two books out, I won't tell you which to read but I can say they're each different -- Besserwisser is a satirical mystery and False Refuge a noir thriller. The Losing Role is closer to what I'll be writing going forward, however.

It means a lot to hear from people who like what I'm up to. Thanks again.

Steve

Also, all, I changed the title of this thread so I doesn't say the book's free anymore, but the old title still shows up in the forum. Can't find a way to fix that, unless someone wants to give me a tip?

Feeling slightly clueless,

I can change it for you, if you let me know what you would like it changed to say.

Also, at the top of this Author forum, there is a sticky thread that explains how you can also report your post to have something changed by a member of the moderation team.

Thanks, dreams. I'll be sure to find that sticky next time. Meanwhile, please change the title to

The Losing Role | WWII Espionage Thriller

That way I can drop in future promotions without changing the title.

Thanks for the help!

This might be a weird question, but...

What font was used on the cover of False Refuge? I'm not 100% certain without a look at the N, but I think it (assuming the eroded effect was 'shopped) is a font I've been trying to track down for a while.

Not a weird question at all, Worldwalker. I found the font here:

http://www.dafont.com/my-world.font

The site has a lot of other stencil fonts as well. I hope this helps.

Close but no cigar.

I've looked at a disturbing number of stencil fonts, everywhere from the big foundries to dubious free sites, even fed the one sample I have to What The Font?, with no luck. I know it's out there -- I've seen a couple of instances of it being used -- but nobody seems to have the thing. *sigh*

Worldwalker, I know what you mean about looking at a disturbing number of stencil fonts. Believe me. My Moby Dick is a 1940s brush font that was used a lot in Europe for all kinds of titles. The Losing Role has the closest one I can find, but I know there's a better one out there.

You will find it.

Have you tried What The Font? It's at its best with conventional text fonts, but it might have a chance with a brush font (my stencil font just gave it spasms).

Never tried What The Font?, looks interesting. When I'm trying to find a font while working I've used IdentiFont from time to time with OK results.

That was a big help, thanks! I found the font I was seeking -- I'm using it in my next cover redesign.

Hi all,

The New Podler Review of Books reviewed The Losing Role this week. Reviewer David Drazul calls the novel "an excellent WWII espionage thriller that transcends the genre, making it a story that you don't have to be a history buff to enjoy."

http://thenewpodlerreviews.blogspot....-anderson.html

I hope you'll give it a look.

Thanks and happy reading,
Steve
