Need your suggestion

Hi everyone!

I’m really needing some suggestions right now.  I’m doing well with my second book, Immortal Rose, and I’m needing to start thinking about how to create a good quality book cover.  My sister-in-law who is working on my Relinquish book cover is too busy to help with this one so I’m on my own. 

Any suggestions other than hiring a graphic artist?  I’d like to give it a go myself first and if I can’t be happy with my creation then I will start looking for a pro. 

What have you used in the past that was good/bad?

Thanks so much!

    Gimp is good. If I (the techno-idiot queen) can figure it out, anyone can, and it's free.

    Thanks Sandy. I've heard about Gimp but never played around with it. Is it pretty straight forward with directions?
