First Sketch: Allure of the Gypsies Possibility

Jason Pedersen, the artist behind my covers, sent me this sketch of a possible cover for Legends of Windemere: Allure of the Gypsies.  It’s just a preliminary, but I thought I would share to get people going ooh and aah.  The sketch is of Sari the Gypsy dancing, which she does tend to do. Thinking about it, she’s always moving, spinning, or doing something physical.  Guess I gave her some hyperactivity without realizing it.

What do you think?

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    I have always been sort of enchanted by the gypsy lifestyle. It is a really cool first sketch. I am eager to see the final…more than that, I am eager to get on with my reading of the series.

    I say this sketch to be somewhere in your story – some unfolding unfinished part. It’s very nice!
