Today is the day, ladies and gentlemen! The day you finally get to see the beautiful cover for my newest book – which will be released in the VERY near future.
I ordered the proof copy yesterday, so hopefully sometime early next week I will be able to see it “in person” and determine whether or not there are any color-tweaks that need to be made to the cover, or any last-minute changes that need to be made to the interior. Hopefully everything will look perfect and I can announce the release of SECOND SON next week!
I’d love to make you scroll down a bit, sit on pins and needles, really soak up the anticipation, but I just can’t do that to you. You’ve waited so patiently.
So, without further ado, the lovely artwork of Angelina Walker, and graphic design talents of Evan Walker….. (if you click on the image, it will open in its own window at a much higher resolution, so you can see more of the detail).
In an attempt to manipulate the future, a family and a nation are forced to decide between two brothers. Guided by a prophecy spoken hundreds of years before, the King and Queen of Llycaelon have set their course. Their goal: to fulfill the prophecy and save their nation from a dire fate.
Rhoyan has always understood and accepted his own role as second born and perpetual prince. He looks forward to the day when he will be a warrior in his older brother’s guard. When Rhoyan is sent on a quest filled with unimaginable danger, nobody anticipates the greater repercussions.
As Rhoyan journeys far across the seas on his appointed trial, he will battle creatures of legend, suffer shipwreck, endure captivity, and lay claim to a fallen star. When tragedy strikes, Rhoyan must struggle to return home believing his quest has failed. However, the home he left no longer awaits him and the true test of his strength and character has only just begun.
Long before Aom-igh needed a champion, Llycaelon had a Second Son.
Isn’t it beautiful? Thank you, Angelina, for this lovely painting! And thank you, Evan, for putting so much time and effort into placing/sizing, and choosing the correct colors for the text. You are both absolutely amazing!
