So as you probably read from yesterday’s news about Spearhead Books, things are getting exciting for our tribe in the post-publishing world.
But you also probably saw a glimpse of Rise of the Dibor’s cover. So I thought I’d give you a little clearer look today.
There are a few more tweaks to be made, but this will at least give you a solid idea of what’s to come.
While I originally thought a warrior (a Dibor) should be on the cover, the whole reason the Dibor were formed was to confront the Dairne-Reih. The Miller Bros took this to a other level by suggesting that a statue-like figurine, eluding to legendary history, be center stage. And so a stone Dairneag was decided upon as the best fit for Book I.
I like the change-up from the first edition in 2006, which was more classically romantic, and think it brings a fierceness and intensity to the cover that it lacked perviously.
I owe a big thanks to Chris & Allen Miller for the concept design, and Jason Clement for the TWLC logo branding.
With the interior design getting wrapped up today, and the cover tomorrow, I’m hoping Amazon’s CreateSpace gives me a ship date by late next week.
Again, thanks for your patience gang. Enjoy the torture a little more; it’s almost done. ch:
