Descripción del libro
15-year-old Wesley Conner and his 14-year-old sister, Anna step inside their house one day to find their parents missing. After a vain police search, the siblings, and their best friend, 15-year-old Drew Vincent, an orphan since infancy, are taken into the foster care of the elderly Josiah Smith. Exploring the old man’s house, the three teens discover a mirror that is a portal to another world—a world of knights, elves, dwarves, and strange creatures. They soon find themselves caught in a country that is on the brink of war, threatened by an evil elf lord seeking dominion. When their new friends at the Citadel enlist their help, offering to train them as knights, the teens accept, in hopes of finding their parents. But they are soon caught up in a struggle much bigger than they ever could have imagined.

Though it doesn't really fit my genre, this cover just feels great. Classy, clean, not too dark. Exciting.
I like the colors. Like the animation and font. It's a bit dark.
Like the color schemes (the middle one is slightly too blue), like the detail and the font. Nice combination of people and scenery/setting.
This is too green with too many clouds.
Love the color scheme, the details of the sword, his cape, the nature background, the light on the horizon. The mood feels adventurous and hopeful. Love this cover.
Like the people. Dont like the dark hooded figures in the background.
A little too blue. Still, the cover is eye-catching.
Really like the font of the title.
I love the animation of the character! Love the browns of his clothes and the details. Don't like the white background. I want a background with substance. Some kind of scenery. I like the idea of a cover that captures a scene from the novel.
Like the "big scope" of this cover. Feels epic. Like the color scheme.
I'd love to see a designer try something like this. Smaller picture, more text and background. Instead of the circle, i could be a mirror.
LOVE this image (except the sky is too dark).
I like how this is unique and doesn't have a tone of graphics.
This is the type of castle I'm thinking.
This is a hand-drawn map that I'd like to have touched up and included on the inside of the book.

I would prefer original artwork. My vision includes the backs of three teens (two boys, one girl) facing a mirror (perhaps with an ornate gold frame) that shows a wood (forest with a pond/lake). Maybe one of the teens (boy with dark curly hair) is touching the mirror. Another option could be to have a picture of a white castle that protrudes from a rock face/mountain. A sea is to the right (east).
I've included below some reference photos. I especially like the color schemes in Judge, Aedyn Chronicles, the Flight, and Kingdom's Dawn. A Cast of Stones is too green and The Light of Eiden is too blue. My favorite font is The Young Elites. I want the cover to feel epic, adventurous. This is a Lord of the Rings/Chronicles of Narnia type adventure/quest/fantasy book.
I'm looking to publish through Amazon Create Space. Launch date is Septemeber 18, 2018.
Lo que debe evitarse
Though this book is a fantasy book, I don't want to the cover to be overly "dark" thematically. Needs to be kid-friendly and able to appeal to a Christian audience.
