Yep, I'm at it again. I'll be changing the cover of both the print and ebook for Beneath the Lanterns to this art. There are several reasons for this change. One is that I want the ebook and print book to share the same cover art. I didn't like my original cover art which is still have that on the print edition. Not, mind you, that I sell any books, but it shows up in the listings. I do, however, like the art for the ebook version. I can't say that it sell any books, but it doesn't seem to not sell them either. However, the original art work is smaller, and I didn't think it would scale up to 9x6" at 300 dpi very clearly. So what I did was essentially repaint the same scene, the street alongside the lake, the "Reed Bank" in a similar, but slightly more current "Use your imagination" style abstract landscapes on a larger scale. I think this turned out as well as can be expected. I'm going with colorful, if "artsy" covers.
Below are the two complete original paintings I used. On top the new one, below, the one I used for the ebook version
