This one looks pretty cool: Daniel Nayeri’s quartet of novels  Straw House, Wood House, Brick House, Blow. Publisher’s description—

Written entirely on an iPhone, this quartet of YA novellas by Another Pan and Another Faust author Daniel Nayeri showcases four different genres.

This bold collection of novellas by Another series author Daniel Nayeri features four riveting tales. These modern riffs on classic genres will introduce young adult readers to a broad range of writing styles that explore universally compelling themes such as identity and belonging, betrayal and friendship, love and mortality.

Straw House: A Western sizzling with suspense, set in a land where a rancher grows soulless humans and a farmer grows living toys.

Wood House: This science-fiction tale plunges the reader into a future where reality and technology blend imperceptibly, and a teenage girl must race to save the world from a nano-revolution that a corporation calls “ReCreation Day.”

Brick House: This detective story set in modern NYC features a squad of “wish police” and a team of unlikely detectives.

Blow: A comedic love story told by none other than Death himself, portrayed here as a handsome and charismatic hero who may steal your heart in more ways than one. With humor, suspense, and relatable prose, this hip and cutting-edge collection dazzles.

The book also came with this cool, I dunno whatchacallit, bookmark? It’s flat:

  1. Dear Biblioklept,
    Thanks for that, In many ways, your title is the most important part of your book. Without a great title, your potential reader will never pick up your book, will never read the first sentence and will never be hooked into reading the book. When you write your how-to book you need to take a great deal of care with the title.
    Thx.
