Photoshop Will Eat Your Soul.

I've been prepping SM for a print edition through Lulu. This is a possible cover for it. I did it today. I think I need to let it sit for a bit and look at it again after NOT staring at it for six hours straight. If you find it hideous or laughable, please let me know because I no longer have free will or sound judgement. Photoshop controls me.

And yes, I'm thinking about using my real name.

I love the font, I love the tagline, and I think the photo is great.

The only thing I'm not sure about is the filter you've got over the photo, I think it's an unnecessary layer of distortion.

*slaps head* Duh...should have added this: I work for Lulu, so if you need any help, let me know. ^_^

Trust me the photo needs a filter, I do not have the baddest photoshop skillz but I could see about changing what filter I use. Or possibly making her not look so freakish when unfiltered.

And a bwahaha, I now have a person on the inside. I will definitely let you know if I need help with Lulu. I played around with it before, but yanked SM when I didn't think it was ready.

i don't know if this is going to helpful or not but i would say neither. i think that the picture you have on your site - the black and white drawing of the girl's eyes is much more striking. the girl in the photo just looks a bit too young even with the distortion to be mary.

keep up the good work. i am really liking mary and unicorn bait.

I'm not attracted to this cover, personally I would not read a book with it 'cause frankly it scares me. this could only be me though & I DO love the book :).

This cover is kind of scary. I ended up spending a lot more time on it, but even now, people say the current cover is scary. I'm trying to figure a way to make it more welcoming. Thanks!
