    Hey guys,

    I'm currently preparing one of my ebooks for publication. Please recommend fonts for the cover.

    I'm looking for a font that is easy to read on a thumbnail, but still classy or distinctive. If you can share links to covers that use these fonts, all the better.

    Thanks.

    Times New Roman. It's a pretty well established font that's both stylish and clear. It looks great underlined, italicised (?) or in bold.

    Also, it doesn't look too shabby in different colours and sizes

    There's thousands out there, though a lot have frustrating copy-write clauses. Try googling free fonts, there are many sites that will let you type in your title to see the exact possibilities.

    As an aside, if anyone knows a good font for a bloody scrawl across a stone wall let me know. I'm talking 'smeared on with a severed limb', not 'dripping red paint'.

    I was unable to find much in the way of "smeared blood" font. However, I did find one I hope is close to what you're after Free halloween fonts - FontSpace here. It's the second one down, No Fear.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks, though that happens to be a good example of the copy-write issues. The font is only free for 'personal use', I imagine if you were to use it on a novel cover (thus make money from it) you'd be ripe for a potential suing.
