New covers

I bought myself a Wacom Intuos4 drawing tablet last week, and I've spent the past few days learning to draw.

After a bit of practice I decided to have a go at some new covers for my books. I've redone books 2 and 3 so far, and I'll paste book 4 when I replace that one too.

I'm not claiming to be anything more than an amateur, but my goal with these covers was to stand out on Amazon amongst the endless star-filled backgrounds with planets and spaceships.

The other great thing about ebooks is that I can continue tweaking and uploading these covers as I improve my skills.

Keep this up Simon and I'll be hiring you to do my covers as well.

I like to do my own covers as well. The good thing is that there are endless lessons on the net for whatever package you use. I prefer GIMP.
