OK, so I was at work the other day and a friend of mine came into the store. He's a writer himself and he's finishing up a self-help book about chronic pain. I met his wife for the first time and we all got to talking about our books and self-publishing. His wife told me she took a look at my book on amazon.com and thought that it looked really nice. But then she said something that a lot of people have been saying. "It's a children's book, right?" she says. I get asked this question all the time, actually. Even if I just tell someone the title of the book, most of the time they think it's a children's book. Could it be the name of it alone? Is it the cover, which has an image of a woman holding a baby? Could it be one of my reviews that compares it to Beauty & the Beast (a Disney movie)? I may have answered my own question. But I'd like to hear your perspective.
