While I was putting together my last post (as I indicated) I came up with an idea of how to do the cover art for the paperback version of my short story collection. I liked the idea enough that it prompted me to replace my current cover for the ebook version with new art. However, being impulsive, I thought I would try to get feedback this time.
This collection is the 1st real cover art I’ve attempted. My goal is to make it look somewhere between pulp fiction (to which these stories are homage) and professional. Both versions are probably meh, but I’m trying to do this without spending a penny on cover art.
For comparison, here is my mock-up of the final book cover. The back will be overlaid with info such as the book blurb and ISBN information. It’ll look all book-like once refined and finished. Feedback is welcome.
