At the moment, Count Taka is four-hundred-odd pages at twelve-point Times New Roman font, which may be a little bit large.
In the interests of simplicity, I tend to use Times New Roman. 1) It’s a readily-available and recognizable font. 2) I like reading it. 3) It’s recognized by every e-reader out there, so I don’t have to reformat things for the Kindle version as much.
There is, however, one slight difficulty with TNR. When I look at it in 10-point or 12-point, it’s fine; but for some reason, to me, 11-point looks “off.” So… if I want something smaller than 12-point, I jump to 10-point. Which works just fine for me when I’m printing out rough drafts to read, but how does it work for other people?
At the moment I have Count Taka in 12-point, which may be a somewhat large print for a book, but I’ve thought it was better to have print too large than too small.
Does anyone else have thoughts or feedback?
