How angusb6 started their book cover journey
Lord of Empathy
I am a 28 year old Australian high school teacher. I love most fantasy work, (my two favourite authors atm are Bradnon Sanderson and Patrick Rothfuss). I am also an avid dnd player and dungeon master.
Set in a fictional kingdom of Domion, where the ruling class have the ability to sense and manipulate others emotions, Bren is an illegal Empath who sells emotions as drugs. Domion, having recently ended a thirty-year war, is in the process of solidifying an uneasy treaty and eliminating the undesirable elements of their society. Leading the charge against the world Bren has created is Duke Preston, the current heir to the throne.
After having his criminal domain destroyed at the Duke’s hands, Bren is adopted into a royal house. Once integrated into royal society Bren mercilessly uses ever tool at his disposal to elevate himself to the ultimate seat of power.
This book would be best for anyone who loves a non typical heroes, books with both political intrigue as well as combat.
What colors do you want to see in your design?
•A contrast of colour and shadow against a white background. I feel too much colour or vibrancy would not match the novel and would like to stick to a more simple colour scheme and design
•I really like the use of wisp/shadow like patterns in an image
•I would like a male figure within the image, ideally reaching for an eight pronged crown.
What to avoid
I am not interested in stock images or overly sexualised covers.
