A toothpick? How quaint...
I have it on very good authority that the Old Town is favored by fencers...

So of course I like it.

(I know this isn't the right aspect ratio for an ebook cover, at least according to Amazon. I didn't think to check until after it was done, but I figure I have many drafts to go before I get this right.) How's it look otherwise, though?

I'll probably start from scratch and come up with a different image, one that has a bit more, as you said, dramatic content, so just to clarify that if zoomed out a little, the kid is floating along a corridor.
As for font, I'm really not sure what I should be looking for, especially on a limited budget. I want a font that I can use with both my fantasy and sci-fi stories, so I can keep a consistent look to my covers. I want it to be bold enough that it stands out on a thumbnail.
And the red, yeah, rookie mistake there. I got stuck on 'red attracts sales' that I read somewhere and forgot that it has to fit the image.
