Oh, thank goodness

According to the Lulu Titlescorer, The Rules for Hearts has a 26.3% chance of being a bestseller. That’s four percent higher than the score for Empress!

Needless to say, this is bullshit. But still! Make up titles and post the results in the comments!

    The All New Thebes Variety Show is 26.3 but if I just call it THEBES it becomes a 72 percent best seller.

    I would call it COMMIES FROM MARS but man, that’s already a kick-ass dirty comic

    uh :(

    I jump upon the bullshit bandwagon! I’ve got three novels in the beginning stages of being shopped, and now I can tell my prospective agents my chances of “best-seller” status.

    Banana Sunday…63.7%
    Red Zipper Sidekick…63.7%

    Yee-hah! I’m quittin’ my day job right now.
