This is the same image as my previous submission, but with the full mock up for cover text.  I'm not sure if this text is what I'd end up going with, but I referenced a bunch of hard cover fantasy books for what they had. It really seemed to be quite a hodgepodge. So I went with "fantasy world explanation" on the back, and "this book's major plot line" on the inside cover. I did not include an "about the author" section, though it's something I may add later.

Now, my dream for this? Kickstarter to self publish this as a hard cover novel, complete with illustrations for each chapter.  You know, if I don't eventually try and submit it for publishing to Tor or something. And if that were the case I'd rather pay another artist to remake this even better. My style is a bit too, uh, comicky :)

Honestly, Kez, I think the comic-y look you've drawn for it would actually set it apart from a lot of other fantasy books, which could result in a really good thing. Plus, then it's all entirely yours, with your personal stamp on it! :D

I don't mind the comic/line look myself, I think I just want to entirely avoid that whole new horrible trend of cover, which is some silhouette with a photoshop filter on a blurry background. I mean, seriously. Not sure who is encouraging that trend but it's really annoying!
