When I decided to make paperbacks, I initially used the same covers. The graphics are really too low-res, so they look like crap. Thus I decided that I should get new covers made. But I didn't want to reinvent the wheel. I just wanted to replace the silhouettes on each cover.
So when I heard on Facebook he wasn't that busy, I contacted artist A.L. Sirois, who drew the Scarlet Knight promo comic book. It turned out to be a little more difficult than either of us expected to get something workable. Here are the new covers but for some reason Blogger is lightening them in places; this happened on another pic I loaded recently; I don't know what Blogger's deal is with that. They don't look that way on Amazon or in Paint Shop Pro.
You'll notice too I transposed the text and graphics. This is to avoid the margins for the paperbacks. The only margin I have to worry about for the text is the fold on the left side. The new covers are a bit better resolution, so they look better. Plus now they're in matte instead of annoying super-glossy format that makes taking a picture of them impossible.

All three paperbacks are for sale on Amazon and Createspace. They make great gifts! And stocking stuffers if you have a rather large stocking.
