I’ve been working for the last week or so to learn photo-editing, and have done that primarily by working on new covers for some of my previously published short stories. To that effect, I’ve made new covers for Fleurs du Mal and Whatever Else. I’ve repeated some of the elements, hoping to tie my republished stories together in appearance.
This ties me into using certain elements for the remainder of the shorts I’m hoping to republish this year (starting with The Bear Girl next month.)
If you already have these books, there’s nothing new inside the covers…I’ve just prettied up the outside. So there’s no need to purchase a new copy.
I’d like to think that both of them are improvements on the old covers. We’ll have to see as time goes on, I suppose.
The Bear Girl will be my first composite cover, where I’m putting together images from different photos to get everything I need into the shot. It will not look similar to either of these, save for (most likely) the placement of the text elements.
So sometime next month, I’ll be putting that one up here. Stay tuned ;o)
