Another Cover Change - sheesh!

Posted on April 23, 2013
I didn't check the privacy policy of the site where I downloaded the "free" image for my new cover, and there were specific exclusions about commercial usage. Yikes! Lesson learned.

Good thing I had the right mind to check it yesterday. To use such a fantastic piece of work for free bugged me. My paranoia prompted me to double-check the free download site, which states in its privacy policy that the free images were not allowed for commercial usage. Since there is no way to get in touch with the artist, I had to change the cover.

I just updated Amazon and CreateSpace with new cover design that will take about a day to go through. This new cover has been out for a few days, but since I haven't been doing any promotions there haven't been any downloads. Good thing I caught it before going to Smashwords.

Below is the new cover, which I think turned out to be a little nicer, with a paid, licensed image.
