Thought I would finally get around to sharing the cover of a little side project I am working on! Once again, my cover designer, Mr. Don Semora, has exceeded my expectations with this beautiful cover. There are so many things I love about it, such as the rustic browns in the color scheme, but I think my favorite aspect is the Yggdrasil at the center, surrounded by runes. So perfect for this Norse fairy tale!
When Ravens Fall is my imaginings of a Norse fairy tale, using characters from the old Norse legends and using their stories to retell a fairy tale. It is an easy read, with a small cast of characters revolving around one central theme: a man facing a destiny he cannot escape. Each of the characters in this story respond to his tragedy in different ways--some will move heaven and earth to change his fate. Others will sacrifice themselves. Some will run away. Others will watch from a distance. They will, almost all, be changed.
This story is near and dear to my heart, and in the upcoming months I will be sharing more of my reasons for choosing to write this unusual tale as well as delving into the legends that inspired the characters. All but one character came straight out of Norse mythology. Also, the initial launch of this story will be a bit unique, so you will want to stay tuned for more details.
