Book or e-book cover art
« on: February 21, 2012, 01:48:09 PM »
Just a quick reminder - if you need cover art for your self-published book or e-book, MWC moderator Foxy (Patrick) can do you an excellent job.

Thanks, Ken. Yes, it looks great and is a good testament to Patrick's skills. I've copied and pasted the image below as well, to save people having to swap between topics - hope that's OK with you.

'Wow, those are all cool
good looking Book Covers!'


Since I actually have been working on creating an actual
Stock Photo Catalogue for some time, and since I also actually worked
as a Photo Editor some years ago....,

For my own tiny little (e)Book I selected one of my own Photo's, a Photo I made myself
with my Digital Camera, a Photo where you see the Sun Shine reflected in moving water
and you can see a tree reflected in the ripples also.  

With in the foreground a little strip of green Grass, when I saw that Photo I just
thought that it would be suitable for the subject of my book
and a nice 'not to loud' and peacefull back ground
to put an - easy to read - book title on.
