As I’ve discussed before, I commissioned a new cover a couple weeks ago for The Darkening Dream. Well I’ve got a concept sketch now (to the right, click it to embiggen). You can compare it to the old cover at the bottom of the post.
NOTE: This is still just a sketch, not the final new cover and the titles are quick hacks that I whipped onto the concept sketch. Still, I wanted to see what people think.
We shoot the model this weekend. Cliff Nielsen, the artist uses a composite style in which he blends photographic and hand drawn elements. The final result will even better and much much more detailed and specific. This sketch is to get a sense of layout, color, and positioning.
Overall I’m stoked.
The interior is also rocking along and I hope to have the E-Book on the “shelf” (i.e. Amazon etc) right around the New Year.
So write in the comments: What does this cover say to you, would you pick up the book and see what it’s about? What do you think it’s about?
