A-to-Z Challenge: A is for Air Interrobang ?!

The Fool

Welcome to the first day of the A-to-Z Blog Challenge.

April Fool’s Day.

My day.

Today I offer a mock book cover inspired by the punctuation mark eschewed by my QWERTY keyboard:

The Interrobang

Writing humor. Mock cozy mystery cover. An Air Interrobang Mystery. I would read this! (No, I wouldn’t.)
An Air Interrobang Mystery

Like peanut butter and chocolate, the ! and the ? make a delicious team in the in the right circumstances. (In the case of peanut butter and chocolate, the circumstances are always right.)

But today, the spotlight shines on the air interrobang. The mock book cover I created gives a nod to the cozy mystery genre. Not to mention, my amusement whenever air quotes are deployed during conversation. The ol’ scare quotes. Quibble marks. Smart-alecky bunny ears.

Judgment, be gone, I say. Give me rhetorical flabbergastery. The new hook-n-dot-n-slash-n-dot. Who’s the first to raise their hand?!

I once used the term ‘air interrobang’ to a friend, and they said, “What airline is that?” Because this is the first day of the A-to-Z Challenge, I created an additional procrastination to accompany that anecdote. You can find it on my fledgling Pinterest page. Ah heck, I’ll include the image below and save you a step.

So concludes my A-Day. I’m ashamed to admit how long it took to create this post. Not every A-to-Z will be a mock book cover but a few more are on the menu.

Fly the frightening skies. Would you travel Air Interrobang? (I think I might have.) The image is a mashup, meaning I photoshopped components, added a thought bubble, a storm scene, a screw. Go to the site for specifics.

  1. You did that cover in a day?? Shoot writing is one thing, but artwork an entirely different beast. Great start and looking forward to more!

  2. Hello, fellow A-to-Zer! Returning your visit, and I am v. excited about what I see here. MOCK BOOK COVERS?! Note my deployment of the interrobang there… anyway, I am all about mock book covers, and hope there are more of them presently.

    Here is a little effort of mine in the exciting field of mock-book covers: The Mystery Section
    Great post!

  3. The Interrobang is my favorite bit of punctuation, and probably will be my “I” entry. Thanks for commenting on my comment 🙂

    1. I’m road-tripping this weekend, Ronel, and looking forward to it. Thanks for stopping by!
