*@!&%$!?*! Book Cover

I’ve just spent the entire morning – wasting my day off – trying to cobble a book cover together for Ultra.  I don’t have Photoshop, Picasa doesn’t do much, Paint is useless, so basically I’m left with Word, no skills, no talent and no idea.  I can’t get the photos (which haven’t all turned out the way I like) to do what I want and the text keeps creeping over to the left, like it’s alive, or something.  I fucking well give up.  I’ve given myself a week to do this but I don’t know how to do it any better.  Am I going to end up paying someone with their standard dull template?  This is what it looks like so far.  Feel free to die with boredom.

So what’s this about then?

About susannahjbell

I am a writer of science fiction and other strange and surreal works. I mostly write novels and the occasional novelette. My published works include A Doorway into Ultra, the Fleet Quintet and the Exodus Sequence. I live in London in an attic flat but really want to live in a tree. I wanted to be an astrophysicist but would settle for an alien abduction. I write because I don’t know what to read.
