Cover redesign for The Moonrat Saga

Hey folks, I’m pretty excited to announce this.

Ever since Renu Sharma took over as my cover artist after “Hunt of The Bandham” it has bothered me that my first series, “The Moonrat Saga”, didn’t have a consistent cover design. Her work on The Jharro Grove Saga was so good, with each cover feeling tied together with the rest, that I wished I could do something similar with my first series.

Finally I spoke with Renu broached the idea of redoing the covers of those first six books. I didn’t want a complete overhaul. I loved the artwork itself. But I wanted the lettering to be more cohesive and consistent across the saga. Renu agreed and has been working on the project for a little while now. Finally, she sent me the finished project and I have to say, I love it.

Now you may think that the covers aren’t hugely different and you would be right, some of the changes are subtle, but what she did was make the overall series more professional looking and I love the little added touches, especially in the full paperback covers. I like having the volume number on the spine.

What you’ll see below is the old cover, followed by her redesign and the full paperback version. You can click on each photo to enlarge.

    Nice !

    You should update the ‘books’ section of this website with these new covers.
    Also, if I may offer a suggestion, you should provide a link to Amazon for each books.

    People are lazy and have small attention span ; )

    Absolutely superb! I liked how the blade of a sword was used in the lettering. The
    title underneath the old version was difficult to read in black lettering. Changing
    the lettering to white really brings out the words in the title of that series. Sometimes a little change can indeed make a huge difference!

Just tell me what you dag-gum think!
