Interesting image visually. I haven't a clue what it's trying to say to support the book being unaware of the book itself. That said, my only niggle with the image is the top right text is melding with darkness rendering it unreadable. A little selection of the text, on its layer combined with a selection feather and upping the levels in the area could make it happen IMHO.
I mainly use pixlr for editing (a great, web based editor if you've never used it) but I've had an artist do the work thus far. Just waiting for them to get back to me with the original layered image so I can do some tweaking. I really hope it doesn't take much, as I don't want to be too invasive with the edits.
Overlaying text is one way, but have you tried outer glows? If you set the hardness to 100%, you achieve a similar affect to what you've made, but it surrounds the text entirely rather than highlighting one side.
