No time to write a new story?

Why not give an old one a new cover?

For the last four months or so, I haven’t been able to write much more than blog posts and I’ve been feeling quite depressed about it.

Last week, I decided to change the cover for ‘Powerless’, one of my very first short-stories, because I wanted to test an article I was reading about how to create covers using Microsoft Word. I still haven’t had the time to look into most of the features the program offers – which was a pleasant surprise to discover it does, by the way – but I was quite satisfied with the result of my first attempt.

What do you think? *winks*





  1. I love your new cover, Liz! It’s gorgeous. I use Photoshop to create mine. I haven’t tried Word. I purchased a cover kit, KD Cover Pro, late last year to use in Photoshop and it has come in handy. KD Cover Pro has a page on Facebook where we post covers we’ve created and the others critique it and let us know what needs to be fixed. The kit had multiple files of different covers that you basically only needed to use different images and words. Some I did have to change more than I realized I would. I’ve created 7 covers for myself and one for another author and he wants me to create another cover for him soon. The other day I purchase a box-set template (only $5) for Photoshop for different book-sets that I plan to offer in the near future. My first book box-set should be released in August of the first 2 Lana Malloy Paranormal Mystery books.
