Wielder of Shadows
Braden W. Bunderson
Biografía del autor
Braden has been writing for about eight years, but 2021 was the first year that he decided to publish any of his work. He has been working on his first fantasy novel, Wielder of Shadows, for several years, learning and fine-tuning his writing style along the way. He has plans to publish this book in the early half of 2022. Braden is a husband and a father of three. He works hard to provide for his family and aspires to be a full-time author someday. He loves the outdoors, watching movies, and enjoying lazy days hiding in the "man cave". One of Braden's quirks is that he loves the dark and can easily be called nocturnal. Currently, Braden is working on the second book in his series and hopes to have it published within the next couple of years.
Descripción del libro
The Essenforces – legend refers to them as gems carved from the Creator’s throne, each endowed with a power of nature. History names those who possessed the Essenforces as Sages, men and women whose tales are old, their deeds legendary, and their legacy powerful. Nearly a thousand years have passed since the time of the Sages. Now, few believe they even existed…. Will, a young boy of fifteen, has but one interest: defending his tournament title, but all of that changes when an insidious cult that opposes the Sages labels him as a target. Without warning, he is dragged into an adventure where he winds up in possession of one of the fabled Essenforces. Along the way, he uncovers a plot that threatens to overturn the kingdom and finds himself confronted by enemies at every turn. Despite overwhelming odds, he must go on a quest that not only tests his skills but challenges everything he believes while forcing him to face things he never thought possible. Can he bear the legacy of the Sages, master his Essenforce, and stop the forces threatening the world? Everything hangs in the balance, and he may be the only one who can tip the scales….

Book Size: 6 x 9. Font Style: Something Legible yet Medieval Looking. Mood: Fantasy, Historical/Old, Serious. Front Design: Image of a young man in armor - the bottom of his belt-line should be just above bottom right corner of the cover. The armor is heavy armor style (awesome fantasy style encouraged), polished steel with gold vines/leaves engraved around the edges. Sword (Lion Blade) belted onto waist worn on character's left hip, hilt is visible in the corner, gold hilt wrapped in braided silver wire. Pommel has a head of a roaring lion bearing long fangs on either side of the pommel, mane flared out like a sun. Character is 16, fair skin, has brown hair, somewhat shaggy, and a well trimmed beard, light-blue eyes. Character is holding right hand out, and in the palm of the gauntlet he is holding a flat, circular stone cut like a diamond on both sides, about the size of a US half-dollar that looks like it is holding a thick vapors of shadow. Thick darkness should be encircling the character and rising up the cover like smoke. It should look like he is controlling it / lifting it. At the top of the book, moon-lit clouds, no moon showing. I would like the main title (The Essenforce Saga) to be at the top and underneath it, (Book 1 - Wielder of Shadows). Author name at the bottom of the cover. Back Cover: A werewolf-like creature (more wolf than man, please no sasquatch guys) standing on two legs on a riverbank with a lush forest behind it and a cloudy moonlit sky above (full moon showing). River water at the bottom of the cover, and the rest of the scene above that. Spine: Wrap the cloudy sky and shadows around from both front and back covers like a transitioning scene. I just wanted to add, that this book is the first in a 5-6 book series. I will be looking for multiple cover designs in the future, and I will give the winner of this contest first pick to design those covers if they wish. If not, I'll be looking at the runners up. Put in your work for there is more than just this one contest on the table!
Lo que debe evitarse
Use of stock imagery permitted, but please keep it in moderation as I'm not looking to spend hundreds of more dollars than necessary, that being said, I would like a professional, realistic-looking cover with a fantasy undertone. I have included a zipped file with images for reference ideas. Please, DO NOT USE THE PICTURES IN THE ZIPPED FILE, I do not own them, they were taken from Google Images for reference ideas only.
