Quick post to get the final ball rolling on three points:

  1. I’m looking for volunteers to be part of a Cover Reveal on May 15th.  This is for Ichabod Brooks & the City of Beasts, which will be going live on June 1st.  I have 12 days to choose the cover from the final 3.  That brings us to item 2:
  2. Please vote in the final poll.  This is different than the last because all 3 covers are in their final stages.  The previous one was more for feedback and to get a good idea of where people were heading.  I have my favorite, but I’m curious to see what people say.  I’ll be closing the poll around Tuesday and then send the cover reveal info to volunteers that night.  CLICK ON THE LINK!

3.  How’s the new blurb look?

In a time of heroes, a man will take any job to provide for his family.

Ichabod Brooks has earned a reputation for doing the jobs that most men and women fear to challenge. It is this reputation that has brought him to the charred remains of a small village. The ruins have become a source of strange monsters that terrorize the countryside and repeatedly elude the local guards and hunters. The few brave souls who have entered the creatures’ lair have yet to come out alive or dead.

Only a fool would take this job, but that generous upfront payment is too much for Ichabod to resist. After all, a man and his family have to eat.

(Thanks in advance.)

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.

    Think I already wrote to you to sign me up for the reveal.
    Voting for cover number one (the male figure looks as close to as I have imagined it and well, I see a pretty redhead!!!!), cover number two looks neat as well, but the male’s face looks kinda weird to me, while I really disliked the blending and light in cover 3, I really disslike that one.
    I am partial on the blurb, it sounds a tad bit repetitive and I think it is dragging the story hook down.

  7. Voted! Count me in, as always, for the reveal.

    And I like the blurb much better! The one thing I’d remove is that word, “upfront” in the last sentence. I feel like it weighs down the blurb, without really adding much information.
