I haven’t worked my way through these, but I’ve used NASA and NOAA photos for some of my science fiction covers.

This book cover article looks useful, though so far I’ve mostly created my own covers: http://www.nat-russo.com/2014/03/readers-will-judge-your-book-cover.html

Detour Trail

Detour Trail.  John Freeter’s speculation  about Detour Trail’s plot makes an interesting premise for a story…  And I appreciated his critiques of the cover  (Hmm.  Yes.  the text could be bigger.) and the plot description.

Strike Three book cover #4

I was happy with version #3, but then my editor sent me #4; the title letters were done–at her husband’s suggestion– in gradient!  Beautiful!!
