So. I e-mailed Thirzah earlier this week, with the intention of tossing money at her. She gently steered me away from that, but she did give me some pointers about creating a graphical brand. So I googled and found a font that is very similar to the one that was used by my designer. (It is either this one, or one is very similar, but that costs 100 dollar for the license.)
So tonight I played around in Gimp, and created a banner. It is just temporary, though, until I have time to e-mail my cover designer. Then there will be a shiny banner. 🙂 Though I like this one.
