I like! The last one, "Sleeping Lessons" looks a bit spooky.

There's some spooky moments, I suppose, but not scary spooky It's more fog and power stations and the noise of power stations and riding bicycles late and at night when....it's what happens after everyone else is asleep in a small nowhere town that could be anywhere.

That's what they all say... So, why is it that the spookiest stuff always happens in those "small nowhere towns"?

Those look fantastic, Moejoe! It's great to see you're writing again.

Do you think you'll have any new stuff ready by Dec 1? If so, you should think about participating in Free-E-Day (http://freeeday.wordpress.com). It's a great event organized by Dan Holloway (Songs from the Other Side of the Wall) where dozens of writers, musicians, and artists from around the world are going to give their work away for free. Since all your stuff is free anyways, it seems like it'd be a great way for you to reach some new readers.

Check out the site and send Dan a message if you're interested. He's a really cool guy, great writer, and cares passionately about indie culture.

(And by the way, I'm finishing up a couple new shorts that I'm going to release on Dec 1 as my contribution to the event.)

All 3 covers look really professional but my favourite is the first as the yellow really stands out and draws my eyes to it.

Ooh pretty. I like Rainfall and Sleeping Lessons the best. Mostly Sleeping Lessons because it's just awesomely creepy.

Here are the source images these three covers were based on (resized to fit the forum).

See, that's why I need an artist. There's no way I would have looked at those original photos and seen what you did.

Or have known how to get there from here.

I'm awestruck.

Second pass of the Sleeping Lessons cover. I think this one fits the tone of the book a lot more
