When I published "Christmas on Puyallup" on Smashwords the other day I included as cover art a photo I took at Alcatraz. It's the replica of the cell occupied by Frank Morris, architect of the prison break memorialized in the 1979 film Escape from Alcatraz starring Clint Eastwood.
Well, a cover needs more than a picture, don't you think? I downloaded a free program called paint.net, which allows the user to perform photoshop-like things and probably more than I am capable at the moment. It didn't take me long to create some improvements to the cover, as in a title and the author name.
