Well, the cover is coming right along. I love the version the artist sent me this morning, so I think we’re nearly there.
That means I better think about back cover copy. Good thing I’ve now read through most of the manuscript so the story is fresh in my mind.
How about this …
The Floating Islands are under seige.
Trei, Araene, and their friends saved the Floating Islands once, thwarting the Toulonn Empire’s attempt at conquest. But everyone knows the Toulonese haven’t given up, and the same trick certainly won’t work a second time … especially when the Islands unexpectedly lose their special connection to dragon magic.
Then it turns out that Toulonn is not the only, or the worst, enemy the Floating Islands face. As peril mounts, Trei, with his connection to Toulonn, and Araene, with her gift for an unusual style of magic, will need all their strength and resolve if they are to once again find a way to safeguard the Islands.
What do you all think? How does that sound?
