Unlikely beginnings
No author would have pointed me at this image and expected the final effect. I did a considerable amount of tweaking to produce a grainy, lighter version. Once I had cropped out the gun the image had changed from a thriller with a ‘tough’ protagonist, to a mood of hiding or fearing something.

Book cover design costs vary depending on whether it’s an ebook or paperback but around £80 ($100) is a good guide.
