Phantom Sorcerer

Ladies and Gentlemen. I mentioned in a previous post that I have a plan for the new year. Well, that plan is moving forward. At best possible speed.

That plan consists of publishing as many titles as I can with the first book to drop in the month of January. Where in the month exactly, I am not sure. Time is short and there is still lots to do.

That first book is going to be the book that I have renamed to the Phantom Sorcerer.

Here is a brief synopsis of the title.

Felix the swift, not his real name, is a thief and a good one. When the last job goes bad, it cost the life of his apprentice and the freedom of himself and his entire family. He gets dragged across the globe into a world of magic, and Gods. Faced with High Princes, assassins, traitorous brothers, Gods and the scorching heat of the desert. Can Felix overcome these the forces laid against him and become truly free and find a way back to his homeland to free his family? Or will he fall to the hostile environment?

The cover posted above is made by my wonderful wife and cover artist, Grace Pedde. She is an excellent artist and designer. She is an art student that wants to work on book covers and to illustrate children’s books.

The cover is actually the third version of it. The first one was very “Airbender”, while the second was very “Horror”.

Both good covers in their own right, but they don’t suit my story. They were both my cover ideas and it wasn’t until I let her do what she wanted that she came up with the latest one. I think that I will be letting her come up with ideas for covers as she has much better ideas than I do. I am told that the other covers are for sale to anyone looking for a good cover.

Her site is here. And I am sure that the images will be posted sometime later today.

The cover posted above is the first draft of it. I am sure that it will change a bit. I still have at least a half a month before I need to make any final decisions on it.

Enjoy the day and let me know what you think about the cover.

Until next time.
