New eBook Covers – The Room and The Ballerina

Here’s a look at the 2 new short story ebook covers, “The Room” and “The Ballerina.”

Designed by Joleene Naylor, the cover for “The Room” depicts the dark forces plaguing the mind of a woman running from that which she cannot possibly understand.



Joleen worked on the cover in spite of my not using PayPal, her usual method of payment.

Thank you Joleene!  Find her on Twitter @joleene_naylor.

I’m treading lightly into these self-pub waters. The more I learn about the self-pub process, the murkier those waters become.

Wish me luck.
