Cover Draft - Judge This Cover

Here it is, at long last:


This is a low-res JPEG draft of my cover with layout.  I am not an expert at design, although I know a couple of the basics.  Please let me know what you think, and if there's something I could do better, please let me know!

This was designed with the Amazon site in mind.  I made sure the title and my name are both readable at super-tiny thumbnail sizes.  I also wanted it to look good at Amazon's medium thumbnail size, and work as a trade-paper cover in a large size.  (It may need slight tweaks for the trade paper version.  My focus was on the initial ebook release.)

Please leave feedback in the comments.  Thanks!

Looks really good. I like the font choices and the colors; you already know I like the art.

The only tweak I would suggest is that to my eyes, the title and your byline are crowded a little too close to the right-hand side of the cover. You might want to try scaling the size of them down just a little to give them a bit more breathing room. Right now, it looks kind of like the right-hand side of the cover got cut off a bit.

Other than that, looks good. Looking forward to reading it!

Spiffy. I will scoot them over and/or shrink. Thanks!

I hope you don't mind, but I just simply couldn't resist taking a stab at a design myself:
