I have a guest post at Indie Paranormal Book Reviews today about changing the cover/title to Hero Material, and it’s got me thinking about another cover revamp I saw recently.
The new covers for the Otharia series by Debra L. Martin and David L. Small are simply gorgeous!
These covers telegraph dramatic scope and mystical beauty — the very experience the reader will enjoy in these books.
The old covers were okay, but they always made me think I’d have to work for it, if you know what I mean. They didn’t convey the real magic that awaited inside.
These new covers promise enthrallment, transportation — exactly what I want from my fantastical quest epics!
These covers were designed by TM Roy at TERyvisions, which is really a one-stop shop for all your book design and production needs, by the way. Here’s a gallery of her covers — you’ll probably recognize a few!

Thanks so much for featuring my covers on your blog. I am so happy with them. TM Roy did a fantastic job with them.
She sure did! They’re beautiful.
Thanks for the shout out! And I like Debra’s new covers as much as she does. Nothing makes me happier than a happy author. 🙂 And although I am a traditional/digital artist as well as a graphic artist, I must add in all honesty that I did not create the underlying artwork on these covers. I merely adapted and enhanced the original art Debra had licensed.
I’m working on the cover for the third Otharia cover now. I know I can’t wait until it’s a matched set of three. 🙂
“merely” … talented people always think that what they do is easy!
