Annie Arcane (anniearcane) | 629 comments Oooh, Dorsey! Totally outside of my realm but I think you did a pretty amazing job!! I dig the banner even more than the cover, actually. It has waaaaay more than "potential" ;-)

Annie Arcane (anniearcane) | 629 comments Oh, I totally forgot to say, heh, I have one teensy weensy beef with the lettering for the title. But you totally didn't ask...so...I dunno if you wanna know...? *grins sheepishly*

Begs forgiveness for stepping outta line,

Of course. Any feedback will be helpful.

Anything you would make better?

Oh, yay! I'm a firm believer in the whole "Unasked for advice is criticism" bit...

But anyhoo, I dig the font a lot (though I'm no expert on the genre) but I would personally kern the T and a in "CREST" and "and", respectively. I bet no one else would even notice but I have this obsession with consistent spacing, so "and" looks off center to me. Like, it appears closer to "SHIELD", if that makes any sense? Aiya, I'm sooo bad at explaining stuff hahahaha.

Okay, thanks for letting me get that off my chest, good sir :) Again, stellar work!!

Hugs,
Ann

M.L. | 1103 comments Nice cover! I like it! The only question I had is about the word 'mini.' Everything feels big/epic, the title, the picture, but the word 'mini' seems a slight contradiction. That said, no one may even notice it. Nice job!

Thanks. I see your point of view. The word mini refers to the length of the book.This is part of several short books I call mini's. They are all part of a bigger series. I hope it doesn't confuse anyone else.
