A New Cover for My Novel!


I was out taking senior pictures for my brother and my cousin this afternoon, and towards the end of the day, we discovered a tunnel under Main Street and I instantly thought of my novel. I handed my camera to my brother and made him take MY picture for once, as I ran through the tunnel.
Then I brought it into Photoshop and played around with color, levels, and my new "tech" brushes. And voila, I became my main character, Kimble Haansvoy, STEW agent 1121!

It looks so incredible! I can't believe how spiffy it looks!

I think that you should search for a more unusual font for the title because most books try to have a really original one.

But it looks awesome!

I love the cover. It actually looks kinda like the cover I've "created" for my own book--a picture of the full moon through some tree branches, so it kinda looks like the moon through a tunnel of foliage. A friend of mine took the pic, and I added a pegasus shadow in front of the moon. I need to make a more professional looking version, though, so I haven't posted it on my blog.

I read the first chapter you posted, too--and it's good. I'm becoming more amazed by the day at the level of writing talent in teens!
