Cover Reveal: The Doors at Dusk and Dawn Full Cover Wrap

By  |  2 Comments

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been gearing up for the release of the second of four Shattered Sands novellas. The first, In the Village Where Brightwine Flows, is available now.

The second, The Doors at Dusk and Dawn, is nearing release. I just finished the final copy edits this past weekend and finalized the design for both the ebook and the print version. The ebook cover was already complete. All that was left, really, was the cover for the print version, which is a full wrap cover.

Without further ado, here’s how it looks. Art by René Aigner. Cover design by moi.

Here’s the description:

In the western reaches of the Great Shangazi Desert, the long-distance horse race known as Annam’s Traverse is about to begin. All is thrown in doubt, however, when Sukru the Reaping King arrives unannounced from Sharakhai and puts forth a champion of his own.

For a young woman named Leorah, the more important matter is the fabled amethyst ring offered up as a prize. She knows of the ring, and becomes obsessed with winning the race. This horrifies her twin sister, Devorah, who knows more of the ring’s secrets than Leorah, and is desperate to hide them from the Reaping King.

As the race unfolds, and King Sukru’s champion comes closer and closer to winning the prize, Devorah stumbles upon a secret that puts not only the ring’s future in doubt, but her sister’s as well.

The book will be released on October 10th. It’s available for pre-order on Amazon now. Other platforms will have the book available on release day.
