I just published Blue Raja and must say I'm somewhat ambivalent about it but we'll see how it goes.
I thought you might be interested in seeing what my first effort at cover art looked like. I was quite excited by it and it probably would have worked had I taken the same time to tweak and use color. Ultimately though, the reason I passed was the castle itself didn't look enough like Ymlyhk.
Read the book and tell me if you think I made the right decision.
