If it is record mended or preferred that books use one font for the whole thing, then why do some self-published books have two fonts?

    Sometimes for clarity, most of the times because they're self-published and people do whatever they want, regardless of recommendations and what sells. Just look at all the un-proofread self-published novels with atrocious home-made covers that are out there.

      You don't have to use Amazon for your cover design.There are plenty of freelance artists that do covers. Many pre-made covers come at affordable costs, and they are usually vastly better than a poor home-made one. A bad cover can mean that your book won't sell at all.

    I guess each book is different. You can use one font if it is fiction, if it is free verse you can write your book like an artwork

    I'll tell you what's "record mended", and that's actually reading through your post before hitting 'Submit'.

    I can think of commercial books that have multiple fonts. Kate Atkinson's Behind the Scenes at the Museum has sections of flashbacks that are in a different font. It is more of a design issue - too many fonts tends to make a publication look like a ransom note.
