Preparing for launch: covers and beta readers
I am about to launch my next book, please let me know if you are interested in being a beta reader. The great thing about self publishing ebooks is that you can create a second edition at any time.
I’m trying to put together a cover that looks professional, but my artwork is um, well, primitive is a nice word for it. I now understand why most DIY is done with photographs.
This last one is cleaner looking, but doesn’t explain the book enough, even if I add in a pirate ship floating in the distance. I’ve got to pick something, but if I start earning money on this I am going to get a real cover designer.
Update 5/9/14– I combined the two covers together (using Gimp).
