What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stranger

The Cover Quandry November 1, 2014

Work on the cover for book two of The Tethering Series has begun! I am so excited! Pre-Release begins in February, and things are moving apace!

I love the cover for The Tethering, but trying to recreate cover magic while finding a way to tie the whole series together is tough. I know I want to keep the tree of life. I love that design, and the symbol is so important within the story.

On The Tethering cover, fire is an element in the first story, but not so much in The Siren’s Realm. The same holds true with the forest seen on the first cover and the hands. It’s not that those things aren’t important in The Siren’s Realm. It’s just not what needs to be the emphasis of the cover. And it might be confusing for books one and two in the series to look too similar.

I want water and magic. I want something the same as book one yet utterly different, and I want it to be blue-green. Or at least green. But I might be open to blue.

I know. I sound like a designer’s nightmare. My poor cover artist might be designing dart boards with my face intricately centered as I type. Sorry, Arterismos.

The cover should be ready next month, and I can’t wait to share it with you all! In the meantime, if you want to get a sneak peek inside The Tethering, check out the first three chapters on Wattpad, and stay up to the minute on The Tethering news on my Facebook page.

Update: In other news, look at my Toothless Pumpkin!
