Spellbinder ~ cover art and design

     As with the vast majority of my clients, I met KC on Twitter. Again, as with many of my clients, we 'met' during production of the second book in his series. We planned out the cover together via Live Chat, on my website, with potential plans to re-dress book one in the series.

     And I must say, I really enjoyed this project :D What do you think of it?


     For the first time since Billy met him, the wizard’s sharp, birdlike eyes contained fear…
The three ancient elves known as the Witan spoke:
“Your mother, Queen Eleanor, set upon you a spellbinder.
“A spell-binder?” repeated Billy.
“She knew she was to die, so she placed in you all her power and bound it to you.”
“In you – all your life – was the power to rule Faerie.”
“Locked away it was, like a bird in a cage. We have unraveled her spells and opened the cage.”
“What?” exclaimed Billy. “You mean the magic which rules Tirn Aill is...loose?”
The wizard looked at the huddled forest elves and lowered his voice. “The problem is that Tirn Aill has forever existed in spring and summer. It’s never had an autumn or a winter, and if it does…”
Billy’s mind flashed to his vision of a barren, icy wasteland. Faerie corpses, clenched in eternal agony, littered the landscape.
“Tirn Aill is already slumping into autumn, and I don’t know if it can be stopped,” said the wizard.
“All of Faerie is subject to the will of Tirn Aill’s ruler,” said the Witan, “even the weather.”
“You must learn to be king…and quickly!”
With so much at stake, Billy felt inadequate. He took a deep breath and asked, “Will I be able to save Tirn Aill? Will I figure out how to bind the magic in time?”
“You are our best hope.”

The saga continues for Billy and his valiant friends! This time, two kingdoms and the lives of thousands are in peril. Billy must risk a return to Lyonesse, in the midst of a brutal war, to save Lady Myrredith’s life and find an elusive spell. His enemies have increased and grown more powerful, especially the sorcerer Ergyfel, but the former jester still has a few tricks up his sleeves.

Onto wrapping up the next book :D

Until next time ...
