I can't pronounce your name so I'll call you Fred. Tongue Just out of curiosity, Fred, what's that thingy behind the SHADOW CORE text all about?

That's a good point - the more uncommon your name, the more successful Google searches for you will be! Trust Lexi Revellian to think of that.

I like the new cover but, assuming you aren't sick of further tweaking, wonder if the 'Shadow Core' really needs underlining? That's quite an unusual thing to see on book covers. There's a neat little space above your symbol (which I think looks very cool) and the words might fit neatly in there. Worth a try?

David, that's a good idea. (Poor Licinio/Fred is probably exhausted and fed up with the lot of us by now.)

Oh, i like a chalenge Smile

Underlining removed and text moved up.
The logo shifted down slightly and the background was inverted over the area; so that it is visible once turned into a thumbnail.

   

As for the Logo...

Wow - that looks great! The logo really stands out now. I know you said you had plans to add a spaceship, but personally I don't think one is needed. Having the planet as the focus works well by itself.

If this is the first book of a series, presumably the Shadow Core part is used on them all, so it's well worth taking the time to get that right now.
