Miniature undead

Does my book cover look weird when it's shrunk very small, as it is on my Blogger profile?

To me Rhia kinda looks like a zombie when she's half an inch tall. The shadows around her eyes are accentuated, and her necklace looks like a big wrinkle.

I dunno. Maybe I'm nuts.

And now I have "Zombie" by the Cranberries in my head but I don't feel like changing the sidebar. It probably won't last.



Relax. Take a deep breath. The cover looks fine. It's just that brain of yours -- that juicy, delicious brain -- making trouble.

The cover looks fine. She just looks really intense. However, I think you may share MaryJanice Davidson's zombie phobia.

She does--a little bit. Now that you mention it. But I think the cover looks awesome.

And zombies are very...awesome...too.

Thanks, everyone. I do love the cover. I just wondered if it looked strange at that eeny-weeny size.
