The Vanquisher of Water
Biografía del autor
Logan Young is a Colorado based young adult author. As a child, his overactive mind never seemed to shut off, filling his head with all kinds of stories and worlds. Now as an adult, he’s decided to put those stories on paper. When not writing, Logan enjoys getting out and exploring in nature whenever he can, where his overactive brain never stays quiet for long.
Descripción del libro
Tagline: You thought magic would be easy? Blurb: Kym wanted nothing to do with the magical world since the deaths of her aunt and uncle, but that was before the river attacked her. Now, with her magic discovered, Kym must join a world she never liked or understood. Kym’s inability to keep up with her magical training, as well as her resistance to her almost-royal status, makes her an outcast among the Favored. But she doesn’t give up, and trains even harder as she competes for Lady Nila’s attention. But the Ruler of Water is a difficult woman to please. Magic and Favored. Rulers and Gods. Festivals and plots. But will Kym choose a side?

The book size is 5.5 inches x 8.5 inches and is 252 pages. This is the first book in a series. I want the main character, Kym, on the cover. She is sixteen years old, has light blue eyes, light skin, and long blonde hair. Kym can do magic, and when she does, glowing blue spirals appear on the backs of her hands and work their way up to her elbows. Her magic is water based, so that should be represented on the cover in some way as well. Her clothes (dresses mostly) are made in varying shades of blue and typically covered in jewels. Kym is a reluctant character, so she wouldn't be looking directly at the reader. I would really like the "magical" elements to be really played up. In the book, all of the magic glows, and I would like it to be one of the main light sources on the cover. I would like the cover to be dynamic (like the covers I have attatched). The magic system is very physical, and there is a lot of action in the book, so that should be represented. I haven't had many thoughts on the background of the cover. One possible location could be: "They stood at the top of a small flight of stairs that led down to a stone walkway, lined on either side by long pools of clear blue water. Torches covered the walls, but they didn’t seem to give off much light. A raised altar sat at the end of the walkway, topped with a little white box and illuminated by a spotlight from overhead. The chamber would have looked peaceful if there wasn’t a battle raging within it." Other than that, I'm open to see what you come up with. Kym spends a good chunk of the book fighting death demons with her friends. these took the forms of a giant, a giant squid, and a giant skeleton with wings. I would like the cover to look drawn. I don't like covers that look too photographic. I would also like something that feels original. With all of that said, if you have an idea that you'd like to run with, go for it. You are the professional after all.
Lo que debe evitarse
Even though I want it to look drawn, I don't want it to look too cartoony. Nothing too sexual. This book is for teens after all. This is not a romance, so it should not fall into any of those tropes for romance covers.
