Sims the Tempest
Riley Emerson is the author of the Sims series. He started writing fantasy at the age of sixteen and hopes to one day have a career as a professional writer or television producer. He lives in Los Angeles with his father, mother, two brothers, and a sister.
A young man named Sims has just died and woken up in the realm of Death. Soon after Sims’ arrival, a mysterious old man known only as the Faded Vassal tells him he is eligible for a position in an exclusive group of god hunters known as the Horsemen. Sims accepts the position and begins a perilous journey spent annihilating dangerous demons and disbanding manipulative cults. Along the way, Sims searches for the answers to his demise and his newfound powers. Of course, Sims isn’t the only one looking for these answers. The Overlord of Death feels threatened by Sims’ arrival and is constantly looking for ways to get rid of him. If Sims isn’t careful, he might find himself with a fate far worse than death.
The target audience for the book would be pre-teens and teenagers of both genders. It would be a good tool for foreign readers to practice English as well as a good read for any native English speaker.
Book cover type
Centered in the cover is the figure of a young man in a blue-toned outfit seen from behind. The outfit is made up of blue boots and a blue and white bodysuit, similar to a sleek wet suit. His head is covered by an aqua cowl and over his ears are icicle-shaped earpieces. In one hand, he is holding a whip made up of a black handle, a gold chain, and a turquoise gem. His other hand is engulfed in water. He is overlooking a dark, industrial city with a Gothic palace in its center. The size of the cover is 4.25''x 7'' and a simple or edgy font would be preferred.
