Announcing the cover of my middle reader fantasy novel: Olivia Brophie and the Pearl of Tagelus
Cover Art for Olivia Brophie and the Pearl of Tagelus
A special thank you to artist Steve Weaver for creating the cover art. He also produced five line drawings that will be included in the novel. He did a fantastic job capturing scenes of magic and fantasy.
The Pearl of Tagelus is filled with non-stop danger and excitement. The supernatural forces are new and unknown to Olivia and the other characters. There are no fairies or vampires or wizards in the book. Instead, the supernatural is expressed through real nature and a fictional civilization that lived beneath Florida in the aquifer caves and rivers.
I think Steve's cover does a great job conveying the mix of danger, nature, and fantasy. Thank you Steve!
