Archer’s Aim December 2021 Poll

Vote in this poll to help be decide which series I should work on first during 2022.

There are already three books on my list to release during the year so this poll is for what project to work on first after those are released.

  • The Heir of Hart (sequel series to The Bow of Hart Saga) – I have the series planned and won’t have much to develop in terms of world-building.
  • Book 4 of The Cursed Mage Case Files – it’s a world already developed so it can be easy to write.
  • Book 2 of The Black Glove Curse – again, it will be a world already developed and easy to write.
  • The Lost Treasure Adventures – book 1, All Things Forgotten, is a completed draft, but there is a good bit of world-building to complete as well as a heavy revision.
  • The Broken Shield Chronicles – the first book, The Last Paladin, is a very rough draft that also requires development with the world-building.

Fun Friday: Cover Polls

Today, I thought I’d have a little fun and gather a bit of information about my books. An author hears some things but never quite all that is needed to understand what readers like.

Covers fall into a category of attracting attention visually. I spend a good bit of money on totally original cover art because epic fantasy demands it.

With that in mind, I think it’s time I found out which of the covers among my books readers find the best. I’ve added polls for each type of covers, the ones I’ve commissioned and then ones I’ve done myself. My DIY covers were done on a shoestring because they are for free books (or nearly free) so I don’t have money to sink into them (though I wish I did for the sake of consistency). Also, I include in my DIY cover, one that is not part of The Bow of Hart Saga story-arc, just for fun – after all, it fun Friday!

What Is Needed – Cover Art Poll

archery at sunsetI’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:

Tower 1    Tower 2     Tower 3     Withling’s Watch     Withling’s Attacked     Bloody Knife
