Which would you say you prefer: A (no text on image), B (some text on image), C (all text on image), or none of the above?
Through working on The Perishables Project and interacting with readers I routinely receive suggestions on ways to promote or improve my work. One recent one was to get new covers (something I've subsequently read may generate new interest in older works). In a case of good timing, it was followed by a separate suggestion I make my own
new covers for precisely that reason. As such, and in the ongoing spirit of experimentation with which I approach things, I've fiddled around with InkScape and some images with the appropriate Creative Commons licenses and whipped up three quick candidates.
