#47 Age of Torridan Cover Art Sketches!

Well met, my friends!

Today, Zelda Devon sent me the sketches for the Age of Torridan (needs a new cover) kickstarter campaign. The final version will look as beautiful as the other images on her website. The purpose for the sketches is to evaluate the arrangement and decide, which composition is the best. That said, I still think they look absolutely gorgeous!

Age of Torridan A Age of Torridan B

Since the third version is similar to the first, I’ll show you sketch A and sketch B – help me decide which one is best!

Pursue your dreams and see you next time,

#46 Age of Torridan Kickstarter Campaign

Well met, my friends!

As of last Tuesday, Kickstarter officially allows German based projects. Since I am putting the finishing touches on my fantasy novel “Age of Torridan”, I figured this would be a great opportunity for me to participate in the launch. If you have a moment, please check out my project here:

Age of Torridan (needs new cover art) Kickstarter Campaign

Here is what the campaign is about: I wrote a medieval fantasy novel in the spirit of the old Dragonlance books by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. At the moment I’m putting in the changes that were suggested by the professional copy editor that I hired. Once that is done, all that is missing before the release in July (2015) is a cover and ebook formatting. With this campaign I’m trying to raise money for a new cover, which will be created by professional artist Zelda Devon (see her work at www.zeldadevon.com). My original estimation was that a cover would cost something around €500, but in reality the price is typically above $1000 (for reference, see this blog post by Rachel Aaron on the cost of a professional quality book).

As the campaign progresses, I will put up videos of me reading chapters from the book. I will also reveal Zelda Devon’s sketches as she sends them to me.

Thanks in advance for your time and consideration. If there are any questions, I’d be happy to answer them :)

Pursue your dreams and see you next time,

Kai
