DEAD(ish) - Murder, Ghost, Vengeance and Hilarity

DEAD(ish) is a very short, fast-paced comedy about a dead woman wreaking vengeance on her ex-boyfriend while trying to find out what the hell he's done with her body.

It's free to download from Smashwords in multiple formats

Warning: Does contain an inordinate amount of swearing, as noted by a reviewer or two. But it's not particularly explicit otherwise.

No probs If you want any alterations or you have a suggestion to make the covers better, just let me know (I threw them together quickly). Also I'm now following you on twitter (I'm typewriterhead)

The only thing that niggles is the bow, on full-size - it's a bit messy (stray pixels). Any chance of a) cleaning it up or b) substituting a drawn one?

I feel like I'm really pushing my luck here, considering you're doing this out of the goodness of your heart!

No probs at all I love making covers, I do them for my own writing too and some other people around here so if I can improve them, all the better. I understand your concerns with the bow. I'll try a vector now and see how it comes out. Anything else you'd like, different colours, different blurb that kind of thing, just let me know

Nope, other than that, I'm happy. Gobsmacked that you could just whip something up that's near-perfect for the tone of the book, but happy The black, btw, is my favourite, I think.

It looks like a fun read, nomesque. Thanks for letting us download it. And I agree, the black cover is my favorite, too, but both look great.

Mmmm.. I'm still not liking the bow. It seems...fuzzy. Give me a bit and I'll see what I can do.
