Hi mate, I am the author of an e book and have designed my own cover. May i please tempt you to take a look and tell me how to improve it please? I will not change the basic concept, but one close to me tells me the colours might not do justice to the subject, also the typography is not exaactly bossing the online piste.

The central shape is fixed, otherwise I am putty in your hands. The book is selling, but I have not advertised it as yet. I will soon, but I wonder if I should attend to the cover first?

An author designed cover clearly may have great cachet if it works. But does it work? Be as frank as you like, I am not precious, just want to shift some copies.

Taps foot anxiously in anticipation of your eventual reply ... you have to sacrifice your life to this onlinerly and I suspect you are still clinging to your hold on the real world and sanity! But this vacuuminous void will win you, as it did me. Sigh. But then looking outside at the greyness of a recession-bound London, perhaps this inner world does feel a little warmer. *bows*
