lol, The blurb was a quick pull together. I was asking about the cover itself. How does it look and feel? Is there something I should change?

Have you played with font shadows? Nothing big, just something that might help the letters pop out more?  - - for the front cover - so it's more contrasted with the picture behind it... (the back cover doesn't need it. )

I think this cover is heading in the right direction. The view of the trees like this gives me a bit of an "Alice in wonderland" shrinking feeling. So in that sense it matches the blurb well. My only gripe, as a fantasy reader, is that it is not "fantasy" enough for me. I would take this concept and then work it more into an artwork (I feel that photo's don't work well for fantasy books in general.) I am more likely to pic up a fantasy cover that has a drawing/illustration/symbol on it than one with a photo.

Micaiah!, I just had a thought. Why don't you go over to Fiverr.com and check out their offerings for those doing book covers. All kinds of pricing.

@lynnmosher, I'm currently unable to invest financially into any of my writing. I may pour my entire being into my books, but unfortunately, I can't pour any money into them. I've been extremely blessed to have a close friend who happens to be a professional proofreader and this group who have helped me a lot. But when it comes to cover designing, I'm pretty lost...
