I’ve begun preparations to release What Is Needed in late July. This is a prequel to The Bow of Hart Saga of which The Bow of Destiny is the first book. Currently, What Is Needed is with an editor. However during the editing of this novella I’m working on the other details.
I’m still choosing between making my own cover art for this e-book or commissioning something with similar style to The Bow of Destiny. The main issue with the latter choice is funding. Since this e-book is mainly meant as a giveaway I don’t want to invest too much money into it. However, I am interested in it at least eventually having consistent artwork.
To that end, I’m running a poll the next two weeks to get opinions on whether I should DIY at least the initial cover or just splurge and commission the artwork. I’m also including links to choices for the DIY possibility.
I know everyone’s time is precious, but if you’ve got a few minutes take a look at the choices and express your opinion on the potential cover choices.
Background As It Relates to the Artwork
Here are just enough tidbits to help out with the cover links but if you want more, the What Is Needed posts are still available beginning here.
There is a scene with stabbing violence so I have a possible cover example of that which seems intriguing. The story is set mostly in a large complex like a school so there are a few pictures that cover that. Also, the end takes place at a dilapidated tower so I’ve chosen some examples of that. The choices are linked below:
