Re-Cover-Y (Part 3)

Today, our trip down Bruce’s cover version of memory lane comes to its inevitable conclusion. In case you missed it, the mini-series started off with Re-Cover-Y part one and a look at the evolution of the covers of On Unfaithful Wings and All Who Wander Are Lost, the first two books in my Icarus Fell dark urban fantasy series. Next came Re-Cover-Y, the sequel, in which we took a look at two different versions for the Khirro’s Journey epic fantasy trilogy books. If you know anything about me, that means we only have one place left to go…the Books of the Small Gods.

The reason behind the re-do on these covers was simply due to time. Because of, you know…life…a couple of years have passed between the release of And Night Descends (The Third Book of the Small Gods) and the final three volumes of the saga. It felt like something needed to be done to shake things up a bit, so new covers it was. Let’s have a look.

These ones, like the first versions of the Khirro’s Journey books, and both the first and second versions of the Icarus books, were designed by Travis at Pro Book Covers. I love them and think he did an amazing job but, as I said, it was simply time to mix things up. Enter Steve at Darkmantle Designs once again.

Better? Not necessarily, but different, and that’s what I was going for. And I think he did a great job of tying all six covers together…take a look:

Not quite done, though, as there will be a box set for the first three volumes of the Books of the Small Gods, so keep an eye open for that soon. I’ll also be sharing the new covers of all three Icarus books soon, so make sure you check back often.

In the meantime, you can always sign up for my newsletter to get free short stories and keep up with what’s going on.

And if you’re still reading all the way down here, I guess it’s fair for me to let you know that Blood of the King (Khirro’s Journey Book 1) is free on Amazon from May 26-30, 2021. Go and grab a copy!

I hope you enjoyed the evolution of my covers. Feel free to leave any comments or questions. If you enjoy a more private chat, you can always get me at bruce@brucelake.net.

See you next time!
