Isn’t she a pretty one?
I was making merchandise for a short story in an anthology called Phoenix Galactic.
The story is called The Gift of Time. It’s about Reva. She is the one who gave Laveau the bloodstone in Stumbling Through Time. It’s a little bit of her back story mixed with her encounter with Laveau from her point of view.
As I was prepping some merchandise to promote the story, I came up with the photo concept you see on the cover. I fell in love with it, and my fellow Phoenix Prime authors liked it too.
Then, I started thinking. That’s dangerous because I can get carried away.
I made the cover of Stumbling Through Time in January. Since then, I’ve learned my way around cover design a bit more. I also have a better idea of how to translate what’s in my head to the page.
It was fun. I hope you like it!
