… sounds dramatic, doesn't it? 😉
Just thought I'd do a BEFORE and AFTER of Lore and Ancient Terra's covers. Those of you who do visit here often may recall the 'before', but you may still find this interesting!
Firstly, this explanation is for the most recent set of covers. A number of the Lore books have been published before (with publishers and their artwork), and I have no need or call to judge those. As of last year (after a lot of stressful hours at my computer), I have, for the most part, designed my own covers … and some of them still needed tweaking. Secondly, the author I am now prefers autonomy, and I go with my gut. I need to like my covers, and when it doesn't feel right, go on, change it - my writing motto. Thus, tweaks!
Let's start with Lore of Arcana's four:
That's it with the explanations! It's quite an eye opener for me to see the BEFORE and AFTER also, but I solemnly swear to not touch the covers again for a loooong while 😇😂

What does a girl do when the fantastical creatures she creates for a charm bracelet come to life?
Holy smoke! Even Dad is gobsmacked by what he sees. Elf brandishes his flute like a knife and fairy bites troll … how is this real?
Call in the cavalry because Mom will know what to do … right?

Not only has Gabriel received a new cover, but it is now in production as an audio book!
When I recently updated the Terra series (more about that here), I realised I needed to create a book for the sayings used throughout the Lore books, for the maps, the covers and blurbs, because I found myself clicking open file after file to check certain little things. Thus, My Wishing Well, a personal project that will be available in print only. I aim to keep it to hand when writing about Echo and Calum and so forth, as discussed here. Still, with time, you as reader may find you need a copy also :)
This is a personal project, a way to gather the little things that surround Elaina J. Davidson’s writing.
The term ‘Wishing Well’ fits. The author wishes to have pertinent info to hand and the allusion to an inkwell makes all kind of sense to her.
Excerpts and more have been extracted from the Lore Series (Lore of Arcana, Lore of Reaume, Lore of Sanctum and Ancient Terra) as well as Ilfin of Arc, Latticework. Ethereal Musician and TINSAL, and arranged alphabetically.
Perhaps you, too, will be pleased to have this nearby when checking on something as you read Elaina J. Davidson’s many books.
Available in print only.
