As many of you may know, a number of my fellow Dorchester authors recently had rights to their backlists revert to them. I'm one of those authors. I am currently in the process of prepping my six Calamity Jayne books for digital release as ebooks. The process is taking long than I anticipated. Mainly because I'm not technically savvy. But I'm learning.

The first thing I had to do was design new cover art. You may recall all of my 'Calamity' featured the same cover model with the lower part of her face covered by something pertaining to the story line.

Now here's the cover for the upcoming digital release for Calamity Jayne designed with a wee bit of help from my son:

I'm in the process of tweaking the covers for the five remaining books in the series, as well as my romantic-comedy, FIANCE AT HER FINGERTIPS and will post more of the covers next week. In the meantime, I'd love to know what you think of the first cover.
Do tell.

Looks good to me. I like it better than the first, I think. And I'm so impressed with all these authors creating their own covers. I bet it's fun to finally have your own way. LOL!

Great job so far!

I like it. It's fun and "kicky" (pardon the pun). It would definitely attract my attention.

Thank you everybody for weighing in. It was fun selecting stock art for each of my covers. Some I like better than others, but overall I'm happy with the results.

Love the new cover and I can't wait for the books to be available for my Kindle. Yipee!

I love the updated cover! The original was cute, but definitely love the new one!
