I have big news! Big News! Next Monday, April 28, The Wild Swans will be available for purchase! You guys have been wonderfully patient with this release, which I thank you for. I hope you find your patience well rewarded when you get your hands on this book. 😉 You’ll see what I mean when you read it.
Anyway, Myrrhlynn did another fantastic job with this cover. It has a ton of imagery that comes directly from the book. First of all there’s the obvious, the swans. In the Wild Swans seven princes are turned into swans, so this is a reference to them. Elise lives at a pond (see the surroundings) with the swans, taking care of them. And finally, every evening at sunset the seven princes are human for one hour. If you look at the cover it is almost sunset…*wink, wink.* From a purely artistic viewpoint I also loved the font she chose. It’s so beautiful and the swirls and curls remind me of swan feathers.
I’m so lucky to work with such a talented cover artist who loves books and understands their beauty! Thank you, Myrrhlynn!
I am in talks with my good ol’ pals down at Amazon to try and arrange for you guys to get the updated version of Princess Ahira. (Remember it will be available for free this week Thursday through Saturday. Spread the word like a good book gossiper, please!) I shall keep you posted on our agreements, efforts, treaties, and enduring friendship. And in my last bit of news my dreadful ear infections are gone. I woke up this morning and could hear normally, it was a fantastic feeling!
Thanks for sticking in there with me, Champions. Have a great week, and I will see you Wednesday. Until then I plan to go drink in the sight of Myrrhlynn’s beautiful cover. There is something very soothing about it…
