I recently updated the cover art and the description for my fantasy novelette “The Kinmar”, part of my Knights of Aerioch series. (As of this writing, it still hasn’t worked its way through Amazon’s system.)
I have been told that the purpose of the cover is to cue genre, not to illustrate the book. The cover for this needs to say “fantasy” which this new cover does far better than the old one:
Likewise the old description of the story was weak. So we have a new one.
Knight partners Kreg and Kaila cannot allow raiders to plunder the land unchallenged, even when they find themselves far afield without time to seek reinforcements.
Heedless of the risk they pursue, only to be ambushed not by human raiders, but by a band of kinmar, half-beast half-human creations left over from the Changeling War.
Kaila must leave behind the gravely wounded Kreg, hidden. His only hope of survival is for her to draw away the remaining beasts, a daunting and perilous task. Moreover, can Kreg stand to let his love face death without him?”
The book remains available on Kindle for $2.99 or free to read on Kindle Unlimited. When I have enough shorts in this series I hope to collect them into a paperback but we’re not there yet.
Others in the series include:
Pulled into an alternate world mired in the middle ages, Kreg finds allies in Kaila, a rough swordmistress, and her wizardly father. He’s also found their foes – an unending horde pouring forth from the small nation next door.
Now, he’s in a race against time to find the true source, before everything he cares about ends in fire and death!
Baroness Talisa leads the last few surviving members of her household through the mountains in the dead of winter, fleeing the changeling hordes that have destroyed the kingdom. In that world of white and gray she stumbles on an oasis of green, a garden, sacred to Treva, goddess of the wild things of the world. There, Talisa encounters the enigmatic guardian of the place who possesses great and mysterious magical power and who claims Talisa’s life as forfeit for trespassing in Treva’s Garden.
