Here is the slightly tweeked cover art for my book!
At first glance, you probably can’t even see the changes!
The text is now white and has been repositioned to make it easier to read.
There is also a little more mist! Especially around the model. Mist is a bit tricky because a little goes a long way. Too much looks tacky and not enough looks incomplete. I think I finally found the right balance.
I adjusted the lighting a little and smoothed the lines that still seemed a little hard when I viewed the image at 100%. This wasn’t obvious at postage stamp size but it bugged me enough that I had to fix it.
Finally… I am happy with the cover. And just as well, because the print edition will arrive anyday and I will get to see how the cover really looks. Fingers crossed!
I would love to know what you think!
Do you judge a book by its cover? I know I do!

Phew! I finally finished formatting Tomorrows Child and have uploaded it to Smashwords.
Smashwords is great, but it tends to do all sorts of quirky things to your formatting. It took eight attempts to get it sorted and lots of coffee!But I think I have everything sorted out now.
Here is the link if to check it out on Smashwords.
If anyone would like a free copy to review my book, just send me an email and I will forward you a coupon.
Now to get it published at Createspace… hmmm more coffee!
