Covers Revealed!

I love book covers, and I’ll admit that a good cover can reel me in like a hungry fish. Working on covers with a designer is always a time of nervous excitement. For me, it means the books are close to finished, and the story inside my head is finally transforming into something visual that I can share with others… So, without further ado:

Soul Swallowers and Legacy of Souls have covers!

Soul Swallowers

Some souls gift insights, wisdom, a path to understanding. Others unleash power, proficiency with a sword, and indifference to death. One soul assimilates with ease. Swallow a host of the dead and risk a descent into madness.

Estranged from his family over the murder of his wife, young Raze Anvrell wields his fists to vent his rage. Then a chance at a new life beckons, and he retreats to the Ravenwood, the haunt of unbound ghosts. He and his mentor build a freehold and raise horses—until the old man dies and Raze swallows his first soul.

When his brother reaches out, open wounds begin to scar. But the tenuous peace won’t last. While those who rule yield to the lure of their ambitions, slavers roam the countryside. One man manipulates the law; another heeds the souls of violence howling in his head.

Raze too listens to his soul’s whispers, and as danger intrudes on his quiet life, he has no choice but to return to his father’s world and take up the fight.

(Soul Swallowers is currently available for preorder: Global Amazon Link.)

Legacy of Souls

Peace descends on the Ravenwood, and Raze Anvrell trusts that as love lays open his life, the turmoil of his past will loosen its grip. But in the halls of Avanoe and catacombs of Ezar, political intrigues thicken. Deflection and secrets manipulate the truth and more than one ruler stakes a claim in the quest for power.

A swallower of multiple souls, Sajem files his teeth and inks his eyes. Tentacles of madness slither deeper into the slaver’s afflicted mind. His raids grow brazen, tactics harsh, and conscience stripped bare. Alliances shift, fracture, and form, and no one is too old or young, too wealthy or beautiful to spare.

When death strikes, Raze must battle for those he loves, the principles he holds dear, and the world he desires. While heirs compete for the Ezari throne, slavers plot each other’s demise. If Raze wishes to save his family, his freehold, his chance at love, and his life, he must swallow one more soul.

    Consider me REELED, Diana! They are both gorgeous, but that first one takes my breath away. Oh, yeah. I’m reading THESE. *going off muttering to myself, “Must. Meet. Raze.” * 😀 😀 😀

    • Ha ha ha. Yay. I’m glad you’re reeled, Marcia! So funny. The designer did a great job getting Raze right, which is hard to do because he’s so vivid in my head. Thanks for making my day!

            For me, it’s almost always about the characters. If I connect with them, admire them, find them funny or interesting or heartbreaking, I’m going to follow their adventures. (And if they look like Raze, I can even lose one or two of those. I’m a shallow, shallow person! Hahaha.) I will definitely let you know, Diana! This is one of those books I may have to have in print, as well as on my Kindle. The more I look at it, the more I love that cover. 🙂

    I have always designed my own covers, which has an excitement of it’s own, though I’m usually a bit saturated with the image by the time it’s ready, and it hardly feels new anymore until I get the first box of printed copies. So fun to see the final creation held in hand. Congrats on your imaginings coming to life again with this new series! Enjoy the special moments!!

    • Thanks, Darlene. My first books had pretty mediocre covers and one year I had professional covers made for all of them. It actually made a big difference in my sales, almost immediately. Now I don’t even try. It’s straight to the professionals. I’m so glad you like them. 🙂 Thanks for taking a peek, and have a great day.

    • Thank you! Yes, I like the model too. That was one aspect that I was involved in more than any other – choosing the “head.” Ha ha. It’s hard showing characters because they have to look like the ones in our mind’s eye. This one IS Raze. I’m so glad you like it. 🙂
