Normally, I know we usually go to each others’ blogs and say nice things. I like that about my life. But this is one of the times I’m going to ask you to be critical. This is the second draft they’ve sent me; I like it and am seriously thinking about telling them this one should work.
But the problem is that I want to like it, the probable source of the default blind spot writers all seem to need to overcome with their work. So I’d like to turn to less biased eyes, and ask everyone if they see something that can be improved, while I can still ask for revisions.
I’m already thinking the dragon’s eyes might need to be a bit more gold, and I’ve discovered someone else is using Flying Phoenix Press now, so that’s a lesson learned. I’m going to start a new site with Phoenix Flight Press right away, so nobody else decides to use that name while I’m still putting off the work involved in setting up something new. Or I could use Firebird Rising Press. Let me know if you have a preference in the comments, please.
Here’s the old cover if you’d like a standard of comparison. I decided that my best attempt at font was too staid–it needed more pizzazz. I think it was a decent cover, but covers need to be better than that.
So, what do you think?
