Another pass at the short story cover - One Final Night

Here are a few options from this afternoon, each one getting a little further from what I had with fonts. I intentionally didn't capitalize the L. Does that look weird? I really don't want a glaring L there. If I could realistically minimize it further I would. I just want to be Wendy Young, in reality, but I feel cornered by the fact someone else with my name got there first. Argh.

It may seem strange to obsess over this one cover but I want to set a standard layout/font that will be easily recognizable and stick with it, at least for the short stories.

Even if one of these is 'the one' they need the final finishing steps of ensuring page elements are appropriately aligned, centered, etc.

I think I like the 2nd one the best, and the 4th one would be a close runner-up. They're both very similar, but the 4th one appears to be more embossed.

Since your name is all capitalized, I don't care for the first one too much anymore, and the outline on the 3rd feels like too much.

Thanks, Jess!

I struggle with picking a font... I loved the first one. It looked type-written. Unfortunately it didn't work anymore with the L. Looking around it seems it's standard to all-caps names, so I think that's best and maybe it is a very good thing I was pushed to make a change.

I loved Mindy's suggestion of increasing the size on the first letters.
