Sorry! Just a few more responses needed, promise. 🙂
I uploaded the background graphics that worked the best and took screenshots so you could see what they looked like on Medium and here they are:
And here’s the reworked pic for No. 4:
I’ll be honest. I do like this last one, but I couldn’t resist making a few tweaks. The gold circuitry on the left looks very similar to the original shape of No. 4:
And yes, there’s more on this pic than on the actual background pic. That’s because Medium doesn’t display the whole graphic. Luckily it does give you the option of choosing which area to keep so I kept more of the sky. Anyway, the small additions on the left hand side are minimal.
On the right hand side, however, I tweaked a bit more:
Now, the big questions. Do you like it with the gold? Do you prefer it with the Left pattern or the Right pattern? Or…radical thought, should I leave the two sides asymmetrical?
I promise, this is the last, and I really appreciate your feedback. 🙂

Okay, I’ve been trying to come up with a background image for my new home, but nothing quite grabs me so…do any of these grab you? [Apologies for the loading times].
The gold circuits are from Nabatea, and I started with them. Unfortunately, each small part is ‘cut’ from a picture, so the overall file size becomes rather big and hard to work with. I was also a bit concerned the colours didn’t quite work together. So then I started with the silver circuits and wasn’t happy with any of them either. That’s when I redesigned no. 4 from scratch. But…eh. I need to step away now.
Thanks for the feedback.

I would like to gift a copy of How to Print your Novel with CreateSpace [Kindle version] in exchange for a photo of :
a) What the Table of Contents looks like, and
b) What any page looks like on the larger Kindle screens.
One reason for this odd request is that I’ve tweaked the Table of Contents, but I can’t see if the indents worked because Amazon won’t let me buy another for myself [it knows I’ve already bought the pre-tweaked version]. I know it’s just being ‘helpful’ but….grrr.
The other reason is that I’ve only just realised that what looks perfect on the Fire 6 may look anything but perfect on different sized Kindle Fires.
So…would some kind soul with a Kindle Fire 7, 8, and/or 10 help me out?
Absolutely no obligation to read it. Just take a couple of photos….
