The Broken Eye = Spheres of Power (in German)

The Broken Eye = Spheres of Power (in German)

Whenever you translate a book from English into German, certain things get added. And by “things”, I mean the book suddenly becomes nearly twice as big as it was in the USA. And when you write a novel that’s more than 350,000 words in English, this can cause problems — like book bindings breaking!

Due to the length of The Broken Eye — and the additional length of translation a book into German —  my German publisher has decided to publish the first half on August 17, 2015. We plan to follow with the second half in Winter 2015.

Here’s the cover for Sphären der Macht, part 1! Pre-order HERE.

Check out this awesome fan art by Pen Astridge.
nendo_angel_of_the_shadows_by_peastri-d84fpnk

She explains:
“It’s not an overly complex style, really it’s just figure photography with some photoshop work.
“Basically it’s piecing together different nendoroids (which is the name for these particular chibi style of figures) to look as close to the cover character as possible. Then I pose them and photograph them. Finally I photoshop them onto a background to complete the cover art. And that’s what I call them, ‘Cover Art’ kind of like a cover/remake of a song but of a cover of a book instead. So really it’s a cover cover.”
