'Arise to Fall', book one of The Varsian Kingdom, by Jason Hein (@JasonPHein) ~ cover art and design

Some projects are finished in less than a month. Others take several months and many, many revisions to get just the right look and feel both author and artist are happy with, even more so when the cover is presented to the public for feedback while still a work-in-progress. (I learned a long time ago fewer chefs cause less cover creation stress.)

Arise to Fall was such a project. Luckily for me, I don't/didn't really stress over revisions as long as I see/saw progress with each revision. I only get uppity if I run into an author who constantly flip-flops or simply doesn't know what they want.

Jason, however, was just as driven to present the best cover for his book as I was. He began to worry about draft seventeen, lol, but like a trooper, he stuck with it. By draft 21, we had a final draft. :D

Besides ... Who doesn't love working with high-fantasy heroes resting under a willow? Never gets boring!


Eighteen-year-old Leila, who lives as a serf on King Goldwin's manor, finds her world turned upside down when she begins having visions of angels. The angel Shasia, known to mortals as the Queen of the Light Fairies, appears to the young woman with a simple message. "You are the Specter." Could this be?

Against the advice of the village council and the will of the King himself, Leila sets out on a trek across the Varsian Kingdom with little more than her parents' blessing and the grace of an angel.

Join this young heroine as she discovers just how much it costs to become the "Chosen Hero" of her generation!

Now that you are sure to be tempted to keep an eye out for this book, make sure you follow Jason on social media and bookmark his website....

Onto wrapping up the next book :-D
Until next time ...
