Cover for Amends for the Dead

Having published Amends for the Dead as a serialized short story, I finally managed to slog through the process of designing a cover for it.

I used GIMP, a free graphic designer software, relying on Aubrey Watt’s tutorials.

Amends for the Dead coverI started with the first of three tutorials on making an ebook cover and found that by taking it step by step and exercising some patience, it was pretty straightforward.

I spent some time trying out all the different effects like blurring, enhancing and a few others.

I’m getting comfortable enough with it now that I’m looking forward to the next one.

Amends for the Dead is now published on Smashwords and as a free short story.
