I know that the book cover is really important but I'm not in a position to pay for someone to take it off my hands. So, I've downloaded the necessary software program to do-it-myself (GIMP and it's free!) and then scoured the internet for potential covers and within 24 hours(ish), I've come up with a first draft that I'm really rather proud of.
What do you think?
When I'm ready to publish, I'll purchase the royalty-free license for the background image and then update the first mock-up until I'm totally happy with it.
As I said, this is still only in the draft stage so if you have any comments then please get in touch. Hubby has already told me that he isn't fussed on the title font at the bottom so that could well be changing on the next version...
Revised version (still using unlicensed image with swirly watermark) - focusing on the text... better or worse?
