COVER REVEAL - Azriel
Wednesday, July 8, 2020 by pam

hey FFFers! I’m super excited to share this cover with you. But let me preface it with an experience I had at a writers conference. I was attending a mentoring clinic, so there were only a few of us squirred away with the teacher. No one new could come in, as we were working on our WIPs (work in progress).

One of the attendees was African American. Her story was soooo good! But as we talked about marketing, she shared with us that publishers don’t put black characters on the cover, as that would not be good for sales. Even if the main character was black.

I said, “What? Black people don’t read novels??”

We were all astonished and outraged!

I’m so happy to report that was several years ago, and things have changed some. I’m hoping for more good changes in the future.

Okay, so y’all know my debut YA fantasy novel, Fairyeater, came out in 2018 through Love2ReadLove2Write Publishing https://www.love2readlove2writepublishing.com/  The publisher/editor, Michele Harper is encouraging, supportive, uplifting, and has a great eye for great stories! I’m happy to be part of this publishing family.

That said, I’d like to introduce my new publishing sister, Lee James.       

                                                                         

Lee James writes stories of hope and redemption. Whether she creates fantasy, mystery, or historical fiction, her beautifully awkward characters traverse a dark labyrinth on their journey to a hopeful end. Her work is dedicated to sharing the beauty of Christ, one faith-infused project at a time. Keep up-to-date with all of her stories at www.leejameswrites.com 

Her debut novel, Azriel, looks amazing!!  Check it out:

Bree Faro learns early in life that she has only herself to depend on. Due to her feisty nature and unusual ability with a sword, she is educated in every fighting style imaginable and excels at them all. When she’s sent to infiltrate the city of Azriel, she does not expect to find her place among the Watchmen of the Keep, but they welcome her as one of their own.

Little does Bree know that her new companions are in danger.

An immortal creature lies in wait for any Keeper of the Flame, the city’s water source has dried up, and they are under constant attack from the Yirtzi—former Watchmen reduced to vengeful spirits, who sold their souls for power only to realize the enemy of Yahweh does not translate to the friend of mankind. Not only that, but the Watchmen are fraying. Hostilities come to a head when a Watchman is murdered.

Only a Watchman can kill another Watchman, and all eyes shift to Bree.

Bree finds herself faced with a choice. Does she engineer the betrayal of the powerful city, or does she embrace her destiny as a true Watchman of Yahweh and find the killer before it’s too late?

 

WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!  Can’t wait to read it!  It’s scheduled to release this fall.

But you’re here for the cover … so let’s get to it!

Is your mind blown or what? I can’t even imagine this fabulous cover would hurt book sales! The publishers who think this would hurt book sales need to seriously SEE this cover!!

Congrats, Lee, Michele, and all the staff at L2L2!  Sara Helwe Digital Arts has outdone herself!!
