Wannabe Writers #67 (Cover Art)

Wannabe Writers is my weekly writing updates. My posts consist of my weekly writing progress, my problems, and any questions I need help answering. 

Where I am in the writing process: I've been tackling this writing thing for three years this month!!  I'm currently thinking about starting a new novel, but the thought of all that work sounds pretty overwhelming.  

My current problem(s): Not really sure what to do next.  Should I start something new?  Or try to perfect one of my old projects?  Or maybe it's about time for a little break from writing all together. 

Something I'm still considering is e-publishing the novel I recently finished.  I still need to edit it and revise it some, but it's getting there.  I know nothing about e-publishing.  Any advise? 

My question for today: Anyone know a place to get cover-art done?

Do you ever go to Kindleboards, in the Writer's Cafe sub-board? If you ask your cover question there, no doubt you'll get several replies. Often, a cover artist will post with some covers they are discounting.
