I like all of it but your name. Since the rest of it is grunged, the author name being pure white jars a little. But the real issue is the very uneven kerning. Compared to the rest of the lettering there is far too much room between the D and the Y, and the S, W, and A. It really needs to be fixed.
I'll agree with the others, the 'N' is hard to read and the author's name being so crisp against the grunge of the cover and other words jarrs a little. However my real issue would be that the cover tells me nothing about the book. Is this a horror, an old man reminising, a biography? Remember your cover is the first thing that customers see and it should not just grab their eyes it should tell them a little bit about the book, enough to make them think about reading the blurb.
I'd use a different font. The #1 mistake most people make with Kindle book covers is that it may look amazing when viewed large, but hard to read when viewed as a thumbnail and most of the time, people will see your thumbnail cover (not the large one) and decide from that whether to click and find out more about your book.
