Gladiatrix--some information and ideas needed please.
So I'm going to e-publish both books on Kindle.
This leaves me with a problem for the cover of Gladiatrtix, an Adventure set in early Second Century AD. I tried drawing something in Photoshop, to make it look like a mosaic, but quite frankly, it looks like a cartoon out of a comic, and just isn't sexy enough.
People do judge a book by its cover
I can't just grab a photo off the internet, naturally, besides which, the images of a female retiarius are non-existent.
My thoughts are to amalgamate photos of a gladiator helmet or two with a mysterious female face and swirling mists etc.
Not only have I got to find these photos, I have to learn how to amalgamate photos in photoshop to get the image I have in mind.
How does one go about buying images off the internet, please? How much am I likely to have to pay?
Lots of authors on here have professional-looking covers. How do you get them, please?
