Byrnes Woder is a quite new independent publisher. We've only got two writers in our stable at the moment, but they are both great and we are working with them to create not just books, but a viable and enjoyable lifeworkstylething.
But our design skills suck, as you will notice if you visit any of the Byrnes Woder sites. Sigh.
Target audience? People like us. People who like new ideas, fresh approaches, have an eye for quality, another eye for originality and an iPad, or an iPhone, iPod Touch or a Kindle, because this is for an ebook.
Jimmy did the first version of the cover for "One Dwarf Short" (preview PDF attached) in-house just to get the ebook onto Amazon and iBooks. Now we've been putting off plugging the book because the cover makes us cringe. Turns out commercial expediency is dirty little trap.

Title: One Dwarf Short
Subtitle (if you wish): Private Diviner - Episode One
Author: Jake Zablarski
Ebooks don't need spines, but we might do a 3D render one day.
Don't do a 3D render at this stage, just the cover image straight up and flat.
It needs to be recognizable at thumbnail sizes
It has to look good on a Kindle screen (16 shades of grey)
It can't look like it belongs on the shelf next to "The Dragon Queen Chronicles". Can't.
