Everyone, I’ve been in a kind of crazed state getting stuff finalized and off to the printer. There is still time, however, to be refining and improving the cover as the first books are Advance Reading Copies (ARCs) for reviews, etc, and there will be further refinements along the way. This is the cover as I finally had it for the ARCs. I came to the same conclusion that some of you did, that the screen behind the title wasn’t helping. I did that as a result of someone saying they thought it was hard to read. I agree with those who think it’s better this way. There are a few other subtle changes that we haven’t talked about here.
Let me know if this cures the concerns … or if there are more things to deal with. I appreciate the inputs.
Also these are low res screen shots. The file itself is a nice 300 dpi hi-res photoshop file.
