That Looks…Familiar

Another reason I’m becoming increasingly happy about publishing my own work :-). Now, while that doesn’t mean I won’t end up with covers that share some similarities with another, so far, I’m feeling very confident that what I’ve done so far is to this point, is unique to my work.
