Finally... who knows how many years this novel was in the making!  At a guess, I'm pretty sure I started Elflings in 2001.

Anyway, final edit is completed!  It has been sent to the publisher today so now I can relax and have some fun.  The book teaser video has begun (which always gives me a laugh.)  Whatch this space as I'll post it as soon as I'm done.

The official Elflings cover will be online soon and for those who would like to pre-order, will let you know once it's on-line.

Wish me luck.  In between doing the book teaser, the next draft of Silence Rising has begun!

 
 
Some of you may remember my first attempt at making a home made book teaser.  Quest of the Demon book teaser, uploaded Jan 2011 I was surprised to actually get some views (up to 569)... but, if you look at it, (unless you are comparing it to when color tv was introduced), it's pretty basic.
From there, just over 6 months later, the book Teaser for Tallen was created.  Now this was a bit of an advance for me as I actually had some very basic animation.  Having photoshop as opposed to just paint as my art program helped a lot, 588 views and no real comments, some likes and looks like 1 dislike (oh well)...
My question is, for the tech savi out there, any suggestions on improvement for my book teasers?  Elflings will involve a ship, winged giant bat like monsters in a nightmare, traveling over snow dunes and the deadly swoop of an ice dragon... Let me know what you think.
 
 
Well, have been working on a cover for Elflings so you may have seen my ice dragon art.  I'm pretty happy with it, only thing I'm working on is the silhouettes... not sure if I'll keep the ones I have, or work on a female archer and a two sworded warrior for Elonan... will try both and will let the world decide.  In the works will also be a green dragon, purple... something darker for Subversion and then for the grand finally a combination of them all.  Let me know what you think.
