Unartistic art

I didn't love the cover I'd done for what will be the Kindle edition of All I Ever Wanted, so I redid the text last night. It's better now, although I still think the "Ellen Fisher" needs to stand out a little more. Considering most people will only see it in a thumbnail, it's best to keep these covers simple, I think. At any rate, those of us who aren't artistic are best off not trying anything really elaborate. Dara Joy's latest cover is a case in point-- I really think she'd be better off using a simple stock photo or something more basic, rather than trying to create elaborate computer generated images.
