After much scratching in the dirt, I found out how to swiftly convert a Word file to a jpg without having to print and scan, using the "print screen" function and the Paint program. The image quality was suffering. I work better with word so that is where I crafted the logo. I can use this technique to improve the look of the cover, also.
Much thanks to Kathe for a detailed read on the text. I'm going to give it another read and change a few more syllables. To anyone out there with an advanced copy, you have about a week to give me critical feedback before I chisel it in stone.
