Nothing about indie publishing is simple. Making your own cover art is actively difficult.
You can create acceptable cover art, but it takes a lot of trial and error, and some good feedback helps. I had help through the first rounds of this, and now have replacement cover art for:
- TALES FROM THE LONGVIEW Episode 1: Enter the Death Circus
- TALES FROM THE LONGVIEW Episode 2: The Selling of Suzee Delight,
and NEW cover are in the new series style for
- TALES FROM THE LONGVIEW Episode 3: The Philosopher Gambit
I finally managed to make the covers all obviously science fiction, but kept the personal aspect with characters, and figured out a way to keep my original titles for the first two stories while coming up with a new title for the third that did not hit readers with my episode main character’s name before they were ready. Bashtyk Nokyd will now be IN the story, but not spelled out on the cover.
