Original Cover

Just thought you might like to see the original cover for Outage (formerly known as Powerless).  I created this cover using a stock photo and editing it at www.picmonkey.com.  I really like their site and almost always use it for editing images.  However, it wasn't powerful enough to do what I wanted, so I downloaded a free editor called GIMP and watched Youtube tutorials until I knew enough to get by.

I still can't get over the difference!  I should also thank the artists and authors at kboards.com for telling me that if the book was YA I needed to put a girl on the cover.  You'd think I would know that!
