Just got this in, and I am really excited about it: a new cover for Sarya’s Song! Here’s the full wraparound:
And the front:
Like with the new Chosen of Azara cover, making the decision to get a new cover for Sarya’s Song was really difficult. The old cover is gorgeous, and Katt of Design by Katt did a fantastic job with it. But I finally had to come to the conclusion that it didn’t quite fit the story or genre. Because of the limitations of working with available stock art, it looked more like contemporary romance or paranormal romance than romantic high fantasy. I’ve said before, it’s just really hard to find stock art that works with my particular style of story. Once again, Mominur Rahman came through with an illustration that I feel really captures the spirit of the story (even though I had trouble describing to him how I wanted the “menacing darkness” to look). I’m in the process of replacing the old cover images on the site and in the stores (along with updating everything in the newly-renamed Tehovir world – formerly Estelend – and finishing the edits on Source-Breaker and digging out from Christmas because I’ve been sick for a week, blarg). Sarya’s Song will be on special for 99 cents this weekend; if you’d rather get it in the Love and Magic box with Urdaisunia and Chosen of Azara, that will be on special for $2.99 next week.
