Okay, so this is the rough draft of the cover. I've been trying to fix it up a bit, but my program is having trouble working. I hope you enjoy the rough draft, though. When it is done it will be in book-style format (vertical, not horizontal) so I'll post that one too when its done. Hope you like it! Thanks everyone for voting!

Book cover coming soon!

So here are some of the pictures from my ride. I hope you enjoy them! I'll be posting the book cover to Free soon, just as …
