Sunkissed Feathers & Severed Ties has an official cover!!
BUT FIRST, AN ANNOUNCEMENT
The launch date for Sunkissed Feathers has been pushed back again,
this time to the end of January.
Why? Because life happens. It’s as simple as that, really, life happens and sometimes personal stuff has to take priority over book publishing. We just weren’t ready for today’s launch date and I’d rather have quality work over feeling rushed. The extension allows DPP and me the time to put together an amazing book for all of you!
However, in addition to having more breathing room to get this amazing book out there, January also just happens to be my birthday month (so having my debut fantasy novel published that month is pretty awesome), I have some surprises in store between now and then, and I have a gorgeous cover to show off today instead!
THE COVER REVEAL
Here it is, fellow adventurers, the official cover of Sunkissed Feathers & Severed Ties. What do you think?
About the Designer: Rachel George—Rachel George Illustration—is an inspired cover designer. Seriously, her work is gorgeous and I am so, so happy to have her for Sunkissed Feathers. She also designed Finding Hekate and Losing Hold, and many other Desert Palm Press covers.
About the Process: This cover design process has been a long one, started way back in June when I originally brainstormed what I wanted the book to look like. There were quite a few conversations as Rachel drafted up mockups from the ideas. (Some random ideas I had included a feather/pendant/dagger combo and Zora as a silhouette with things “inside” her.) Rachel did a great job distilling what would make a great cover over the months that followed and eventually we landed on this one! Pretty cool, yeah?
THE SNEAK PEEK OF CHAPTER ONE
Okay, so because the book launch got pushed back and the holidays are literally around the corner I decided to move this, too. I’ll be posting the sneak peek of Chapter One on January 1st on my website so be sure to check it out on New Year’s Day!
Hope you have an amazing Saturday!
