    I strongly suggest redo-ing the cover with your own original work, instead of taking somebody elses work and putting a photo-negative effect over top of it.





    My other gripe, the text, far to small and bad choice of colour. Blue background with blue text? No lol. The text should atleast be a 4th of the cover size. Try white text maybe.

    I agree with Siikez. The book's called "The Substance of Horror", right? Why don't you take one of those like mini dope bags (or whatever you call 'em), put a label on it with the book title on it and have loads of arms trying to reach out for it from the bottom of the page? Put some sort of drug or some salt or some shit in the bag. Dark/black background with scratches and a little blood on the many arms. Maybe the bag can be in the spotlight or something. Just an idea.

    Brandon, I like the cover picture. This book is still about dreams and reality, right?

    Ok im going to try and not be mean but... Picture is not original and low resolution. The text is almost the exact same color as the background, making it extremely difficult to read. The font is something that comes preloaded to every computer. It looks like you loaded an image into MS Paint, made it negative, then used the text tool to write something over it. I HIGHLY recommend that you have a friend or someone else make the cover, because your first two attempts have been a pain to my eyes.








    meh, maybe thats mean. but seriously, this needs help
