Dreamscapes: Myth & Magic Cover Preview

Looks like the editors at Impact decided they wanted a different image for the cover instead of the original one I submitted for it. I was a little disappointed that they didn't go with that first piece, but I trust their marketing department, and they said they wanted something that was more differentiated from the first Dreamscapes.



I'm slowly making my way through the manuscript that Impact's designers have finally put together for me. Basically when I submit material to them, its a bunch of pictures, and the text is marked to indicate which pictures belong with what block of text. The design and layout is all determined by their people (which I am glad for!)

I have until the end of this week to finish up the proofing. As with the first book, I'm impressed by how nice it looks all laid out, and I'm sure I will be very happy with the finished product! I haven't heard yet on a release date, but I'm guessing early/mid this year. Seems like I have a lot of things coming out around that time this year!

  9. Oh, I like the one you've chosen as the cover image much more then the one they've chosen. Well, both are beautiful, no doubt. But as a cover image, your favorite is more 'inviting' then the other. I hope you know, what I mean. ;)

    PS: at amazon.de there is also the 'old' cover. I preordered a copy right away :)
