I have a very clear image in mind of what I want, something that does a much better job of showing something of what the story's about than what I've got.

And frankly, sales have totally died off for the last couple of months, so a change would maybe do some good.

As I described it to an artist whose style would be perfect for it, but who, alas, declined:

"It would be a very simple graphic. The main female character is from a very tall, extremely slender species with fine, short brown fur. I'm imagining a shot from behind, from below the shoulderblades to mid thigh. Her hands are in handcuffs behind her back, but her forearms are horizontal because the chain on the handcuffs is captured under a metal belt that is snug around her waist. She has only a stub of a tail, just enough to protect her modesty from this shot. (It had been cut off in her past.) It wouldn't need any background, just very simple solid colors."

Heck, it could be bold line art and I could color it.

The only thing is, I can't really justify spending money on a cover for a novelette that has generated a whopping $13 for me so far this year.

Any ideas?

If you've ever wondered where the image I use as my icon on other systems comes from, here it is. My Official Team Photo from BattleBots Season 5.0 in 2002. This is "Team Mauser" and version 2 of the Superheavyweight "Strike Terror". My foot is right there on the weak spot that cost me the first fight against Pro-Am. Other than another 10 lbs and more gray in the beard, I still look pretty much the same.

That's my standard thank you for a fav or a watch. I think it avoids cluttering up the comments.

Sounds reasonable... :)

Although I wouldn't have made your work a favorite unless I appreciated that you've produced it. And that is worthy of thanks too. But I'll stop while I'm ahead. lol. Keep up the great work.

And a thank you to all my birthday well-wishers.  While the whole world is busily celebrating something less important than the anniversary of my birth, you few remembered (albeit with DA's prompting, more than likely) so you shall be spared.

Thanks.  There are only eight examples in the world, 7 at large, one half-finished in the basement (eventually it will be mine).  I have ideas for a new design, but I need to build a CNC router first, which given my lack of free time may take quite a while.

And I've rather appreciated some of your photography.  You put that Bolero jacket to excellent use.

since that stream of comments was deleted at nomad's, i think i post my two cents here.
while the lord guy was being a bit pushy with the concepts and whatever, seemed less like he was trying to push his own idea onto nomad and more just...... not sure what he was diong. read a bit where he said his own dragons would fry the bear's chips and did nto shape shift, but that is all to that. maybe he was analyzing or something? dunno.

you, however, were being a total jackass. a total, entire, complete jackass. i mean really, you are gonna complain about grammar in the comments section? one thing to complain about it in the story, but in the comments? then go on this rant of how he is being pathetic and shit? hell from the responses he gave he seemed to be trying to explain what he was intending to do. worse he said was that you were being a hypocrite. did not see him going on a tirade of how you did not matter or anything like that. i wouldn't blame him if he did.

not sure what your deal is dude, but obviously you got a stick up your ass about something. if he was trying to influence nomad's idea, at least he was being more subtle about it....... you were just being a blithering jackass who was trying to insult and put another guy down for reasons beyond my comprehension. its the fucking internet dude. there is enough blithering jackasses, so why are you trying to contribute to them?

He's been harassing and pestering artists and my FRIENDS for years, and I finally had enough.  I tried being polite with him a long time ago, and that didn't work.  I tried ignoring him, in hopes that everyone else who ripped him a new one would get through to him, but that too didn't work.

The guy has a history of trying to push himself into everyone else's creative worlds, and then dictate to them from on high, and I just couldn't stand it any more.  So you bet I was being a complete jackass to him. He deserves it.  And frankly, it was very therapeutic.

He's a parasite, the kind of guy who sees other people's greatness and artistic achievement, and tries to barge in on it and attach himself to make himself seem somehow equally valuable.  If you had seen him in action for as long as I have, and seen the pattern to his actions, and his particularly irritating tendency to answer any serious engagement with his "Contributions" with a "Nuh-uh!" maybe you wouldn't be defending him either.

Maybe you don't quite get how irritating it is to an artist to have some internet troll try to superimpose his will on a world you've invested years of work developing, but perhaps the fact that Nomad had to go in and delete so many comments and ban him might indicate to you that his brand of "contribution" isn't exactly welcome.
