I'm the girl who gets bored and re-arranges the furniture. Or paints a room that doesn't need painting. Or organizes my closet just because.
But please don't think I took getting new covers for the Cloud Prophet Trilogy lightly. I didn't. I've been agonizing over this for weeks now, wondering what direction to go with them - or wondering if I should just leave them alone.
My problem is that while I can create entire worlds in my head, I'm terrible, awful, horrible at thinking up covers on my own. I can look at one that's already made and say, "Oooooh, pretty," but ask me to come up with a concept and my mouth will drop open. Drool will leak out. My eyes will go blank. It's not pleasant.
When I saw my friend RaShelle Workman's beautiful covers, I knew I needed to contact her artist - particularly when RaShelle told me the artist would hold my hand through the process. All I needed to do was tell him about the books and he would come up with the concept all on his own.
Enter Steven Novak, illustrator extraordinaire. He was everything RaShelle said he would be - and more. Within 48 hours, I had brand new covers for the entire trilogy and the trilogy combo edition. You can't imagine how excited I am.
Now I know there are people out there who love the original covers. I love them too. I still do! I just felt it was time for a change. I like change - I'm not afraid of it. For now, Robin Ludwig's designs will still grace my paperbacks.
Without further ado, here are the new ebook covers. I hope you love them as much as I do!!!!
