It is my pleasure to host the cover reveal for Rayne Hall’s Six Quirky Tales, Vol. 1, as well as a short Q & A with Rayne. As a fan of short stories, especially in the fantasy genre, I am definitely looking forward to getting my hands on this one!
Q: This book has been previously published with a different cover. Why did you change it?
A: A good book cover tells the readers what kind of fiction is inside. It makes a promise about genre, mood and tone. The old cover was ok, something I’d rustled up with a stock photo and some basic GIMP, but it didn’t convey the flavour of the stories.
Recently, I made some changes to the book – corrected a couple of typos the proofreaders had missed, swapped one of the stories for a longer one – and this seemed a good opportunity to replace the cover. The new picture suggests what the stories inside are like – quirky, entertaining, tongue-in-cheek fantasy yarns, some of them with historical or fairytale elements.
Q: Who painted the picture?
A: Xteve Abanto is a young fantasy artist from the Philippines. You can see more of his art here.
Q: Where can we buy the book?
A: It’s available as an ebook from Amazon (though it may still show the old cover), and from Kobo. Because of the changes it’s temporarily unavailable from Barnes&Noble and iTunes, but I expect it will be back soon.
I have the distinct privilege of hosting the cover reveal for Rayne Hall’s Thirteen British Horror Stories. And what better way to host a cover reveal than to sit down and chat with the artist, Nadica Boskovska. For more information on Thirteen British Horror Stories, please visit Rayne’s author page. Enjoy, and happy reading!
1. How long have you been an artist, Nadica?
