Here it is, fellow citizens of Lentari. Here’s the finalized, colorized, cover for Wizard in the Woods (Tales of Lentari #5).
The first colorized draft for the cover had it placed at night. While it looked very nice, I didn’t want another dark cover. I asked Rachel how hard it would be to make the time of day something earlier. I asked for ‘dusk’. Almost immediately I was sent this. I immediately knew this was the version of the cover I wanted.
I’m getting reports back from my beta readers and have been implementing the changes as I get ’em. So far they have spotted all the embarrassing mistakes that would have ended up making me look quite foolish, so for that, I’m eternally grateful. You beta readers rock!!
For those of you not familiar with the characters in the scene, allow me to explain what you’re looking at. Noticeable right off the bat is Peanut, the corgi. I’m sure your first thought is that Peanut has grown in size. All I’ll say here is that no, she hasn’t. Of the four of them (Peanut, Mikal, Lissa, & Pravara), Peanut is the only one who has her proper size. And yes, this is taken from an actual scene in the book.
I can’t wait to release it! I hope everyone likes it!
