“Shards” Cover Art

Well I selected my cover art for “Shards” already — sometimes you find an image and it just clicks!  This artwork is “Inhale Exhale — The 7th Hour”, by Emilie Leger.  (Check her page for more great art, one of which is likely to eventually become the cover of “The War of the Ravels”. For those who are allergic to Facebook, she also has a page at deviantART.)

I am looking at four options for the title and author name text, in horizontal and vertical permutations.  I am leaning toward the vertical ones, but haven’t decided which I like best. (Well actually I’m sitting down, but you know what I mean.)

Option 1

Option 2

Option 3

Option 4

As always, thoughts and comments are welcome!
