Cover art for a short story I'm putting up today.

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=283721798364729&set=a.275452769191632.59928.268864733183769&type=1&theater

I'm getting the hang of this. $3 image from pond5.com and twenty minutes of playing around with fonts on lunapic.com and there it is. I'm worried the cover is too good for the story, although the painting in the story is actually really similar to this (the original inspiration is hanging on my bedroom wall).

Feel free to "like" my facebook page while you're there. I don't spam anyone, just put up new cover art and links to new stories. Twitter is where I do my spamming ....!

Cheers. I had to add an apostrophe by hand because the font didn't do them for some reason. It's uploading now. Re-read the story for the millionth time and tightened it even more. It's awesome, though I imagine it'll be universally ignored like all the others.

No probs! That site's great eh.

Just finishing the cover for my novel. Can't put it up yet because I'm still working out the licensing deal with the artist, but it's so good it puts all the others to shame. Bestseller lists here I come....!
