I'm spiffing things up. I went back to the original covers for Lovers and Beloveds and Son in Sorrow, since the new ones didn't seem to be helping.

I've also learned a few things about cover design in the last few months; I do my own covers for most short stories and novellas I release, the exceptions being The Mage's Toy and The Amber Cross, which were both premades.

So now I'm dinking around with the cover for "Accounts." I don't have time to dink around with any others; this is my only experiment for now. Here 'tis; click to embiggen:

I like it better, but I'm not sure it's exactly there yet...

maybe blur the writing or put smoke over it, or make the page darker, so it becomes more of a background. Making it crumple in the flames would be nice, too, but probably not easy.
