You now know all of these things concerning The Golden Lands. You know the unique genre I’m writing the story in, the dream for the story, and the reason why.
Now I’m going to show you the cover.
*Cue epic music*
…COVER OF THE GOLDEN LANDS!!!
ISN’T THAT INCREDIBLE!?!?!
…Now I know what you’re thinking:
I can’t say you’d be wrong 😉 But I was just kidding. Ladies and gentlemen, here’s the cover for the first volume of The Golden Lands!
This picture was drawn by my younger sister Clare (who happens to run a blog with her friend over at https://lilyorphaned.wordpress.com/ [you should check it out!]). This masterpiece has literally succeeded all I could have hoped for in regards to getting an awesome cover. Being no artist myself, and not having enough money to pay an illustrator, my sister came through just in time. And I’m totally satisfied with what she’s created. The picture is a scene taken from the first chapter of volume one of the series, and I think you can guess what’s happening. I hope you’re starting to get the “animeish” feel to the series. What’s more, the cover is a perfect reflection of so many emotions and themes intertwined throughout the series; the darkness of the series, the violence, the emotion, the struggle of the characters, and the strength of the antagonists.
Things are starting to come together now. I’ve almost finished editing the first volume AGAIN and, already having my cover, I’ll be ready to self-publish very soon.
Start getting exciting, because the ride is about to start!
