They’ve always improved, I’ll say that much, but you could tell they always had that homemade look.
Well, these new three look pretty good I think.
- The Jongurian Mission has a nice old fort or castle on it, which goes along nicely with several parts of the story, especially when the main characters sail into the small and unknown island that feels deserted.
- Trouble in Jonguria really captures the dark aspects of this book, as well as the dark settings. A lot of the action takes place at night or in deep, dark forests. There’s a sense of foreboding, and I thought this cover does a decent job expressing that with the dark and stormy sky.
- The Jongurian Resolution depicts the city of Baden, the capital of Adjuria, and the setting for the final scenes of the book and trilogy. This cover looks quite a bit different from the other two, although it tries to keep the same typography. It works, for now, and it doesn’t concern me too much as most people thinking of buying Book 3 would have bought the other two already, don’t you think?
Overall I’m happy and have uploaded the new covers onto Amazon and Smashwords. The first book in the trilogy is permanently free on Amazon and has had more than 500 downloads in the past 2 weeks with little to no promotion. Hopefully the trend can continue and more people will discover this exciting fantasy trilogy!
