I just changed the cover for my story The Ashes of Yester. You can see it here:

I don't have any special software, just Picasa editor. I buy the stock photos on Bigstock, then play around with it it until it feels right to me. Not professional quality, but I don't think it's too bad. And I enjoy doing it. Maybe if I get good enough I'll do some for other people. Anyway, just wanted to see what everyone else is using and what recommendations they might have.

Better than mine, that's for sure.

I don't know about that, MartinV. I'd like to know what everyone else uses. I'm new to this, so I don't try for anything too fancy.

Looks good. My only concern is that the green text at the top is hard to read against the background.

You're right, pdblake. I'll work on it. If you don't mind me asking, what software do you use?
