Look, it’s Clissa! LazyDay Publishing, the cover artist, and I collaborated intensely on this one. It’s the first time I’ve allowed a physical representation of a main character, and it was at Staci’s special request. She said this story needed a cover that would help its readers identify with Clissa. I must admit that she was right. One thing that helped in this process is my reservation about specifying a character’s appearance. Because of that, Clissa could be represented by any number of people. There was another possibility for Clissa I liked better (showed her softer side), but visually it didn’t work with the cover. This image conveys her toughness, fighting spirit, and strength to challenge the foundation of her society.
This Clissa isn’t taking any crap from anyone.
Would you like a free advance copy of Bastia? All you have to do is leave a comment or send me an email. Tell me one thing you hope you will find in the story (a theme, motif, plot point, character development, etc.). Leaving a book review is much appreciated but not required.
Don’t forget that Daughter of Discipline is also out soon! Tentative release date is August 17th, but I haven’t gotten a cover yet. I’ll let you know as soon as I do. 🙂
