It makes the author seem kind of conceited when their name is larger than the actual title of their book, amirite?

Conceited*

My theory is that really well-known authors do this because whatever is written bigger will be seen first. People are more likely to walk past a bookshelf and see "Stephen King" then go look at it to see what book it is, than to see "The Colorado Kid" and go see who wrote it.

Like Stephen King and R.A. Salvatore? lol cocky bastards

It makes me irrationally angry when books just have a giant picture of the author as a back cover.

What if the book is self-titled?

@PhatTim What if the book is self-titled?

Then unless it's an autobiography, the author's pretty conceited. If it is an autobiography, the author's probably still at least a little conceited.

My opinion will change if I ever get published, I'm sure.
