Cover Reveal: Source-Breaker

Time for one of my favorite things to do, reveal a new cover! I just got the final version of the Source-Breaker cover art the other day, and I have been so excited to show this off!

This is from the full wraparound cover for the paperback, showing the spine area with the left side of the arch. The back of the cover is just dark because there isn’t really anything over in that direction to show. The ebook cover will look like this:

I just love this. I’ve been having the hardest time visualizing Kaniev (the dude with the sword and the handful of magic), and the artist, Mominur Rahman, and I went over a bunch of different reference photos, different poses of the same model, and this is the final result. When I saw it, I went, Wow, that’s Kaniev! Mominur has this knack for capturing my characters perfectly, and it’s always exciting to see how he brings them to life.

Here’s the short blurb for Source-Breaker (needs work; I’ll come up with a better one in time for the release):

Kaniev, a repairman of magical Sources with a series of failures behind him, and Fransisa, a Source priestess who is being displaced by a new Chosen, come up against a wizard conducting dangerous experiments with Source-power that could damage all the world’s Sources.

And here’s a peek at an early version of the scene where Kaniev and Fransisa first meet: http://www.kyrahalland.com/blog/sneak-peek-source-breaker

I’m hoping for a mid-December release for Source-Breaker. I’ve become frustrated with how long my revising and editing process takes, so I’m going to try streamlining it without sacrificing quality, and hopefully can get this book out the door in less than another month. To make sure you don’t miss out on the release and the special limited-time low introductory price, sign up for my email alerts!
