A compact metafictional tour de force. For writers a cri de coeur, for others, who knows? There's a bit of Flann O'Brien in The Writer's adventures. Clever and funny.

Witty, and extremely funny. So astute - leaves any writer wondering - is that me!

What a hilarious and ingenious little story (kinda)! I haven't read anything quite this unique in a while, and if this level of witty intelligence shines through in Michael's other books I'll be one happy reader!

A surprisingly entertaining short story that gets better and better as the word count rises. The dash of deprecation, pinch of sarcasm, and well-blended roux of wit and insight give this dainty a pleasantly sharp taste that heightens its richness.

This a very informative short, which wittily highlights how not to write a book. Very enjoyable.

A quick and witty story. Reminiscent of a Lewis Black rant. Hits all the low points of every stereotypically bad indie book.

Very funny story with the best copyright I've ever seen in any book. That wording should be the gold standard. Only 5 stars because I can't give it 6.

A hilarious read that gets more and more clever as you go along! In a mere 2000 words Michael Patrick Lewis manages to fully plot (in more ways than one!) what goes on between the ears of a panicked writer.

This is easily the funniest short story in my whole-wide living room.

If you are a writer, or an English teacher, or a person who understands English, or a person who doesn't...this story is for you.

All joking aside, Cover Art is brilliant in its intelligent wit and dialogue. Michael Patrick Lewis has written an exceptional, fantastically funny short story. Five stars.

Ok, eleven stars.

Michael Lewis is unquestionably a funny guy.

Even before you get into the story, you're into the story. Witness: the ISBN is the hauntingly beautiful formula,
6πe-2π + 4sin(φ)i√2 - ln17
which, if properly computed, will end all life in the universe.

The story consists of three major characters, each of which is specifically non-specific, beginning with a protagonist who is the perfect counterpoint to the story's love interest who, surprisingly, is "stunningly beautiful." You will NEVER guess the bad guy's real identity, which will not be revealed before the final, heart-stopping paragraph. (At least, my heart stopped. I refuse to venture a guess about your heart.)

So to not give away too much (Cover Art is only 2000 words) I'll leave you with this five-word assessment: Don't miss it if you can!
