Product Description
Taerak's Void
(Book One of Fantastica)
A new series by multiple award winning author, M. R. Mathias

After finding a strange medallion and some maps with markings that no one in his village can understand, Braxton Bray decides to take it all to the Hall of Scholars in the kingdom's capital. But greed is everywhere. Braxton and a tough young female caravan guard named Nixy are forced to run for their lives, for someone else wants what Braxton found and is willing to go to great lengths to take it from him.

With a hefty, kingdom wide, bounty on their heads, not even the great wizards of the Sorcerious can help them. Left with nothing but each other, Braxton and Nixy have no choice but to get on a ship and go on an adventure that will take them places they would have otherwise never imagined. Elves, dwarves, giant gothicans, and trolls, treacherous forests on distant shores, love, death, terror, and magic all await...

Hey, it might work better if you sized these down. They are too huge on my screen to appreciate. Also... as a personal matter, I'd rather large high rez pics of my cover art aren't on the net... smaller is better, since it makes it less likely people would download it and take. :)

Honestly, I would suggest for forum posts you make a 600 to maybe 800 wide size and you can link to a larger one so we can get the scale. Somethig lke:



Which is done:

Just a suggestion. BTW - Loving the dragons, need more dragons! :D

I'm interested, but probably not until the first arc of my series is done, at which time I'll look at upgrading the covers.

For now, I don't really want to outlay that kind of money, but I've been told they need improvement. The first arc will be 4 books. Do you discount for series done at the same time, where they are all similar but with key differences?

My first thought for a cover was mainly the people. But your space combat vista's are compelling. My novels are built around space combat, so a theme could be done using those. I think I'd send you the key chapter in each book, along with the source images I'm using now, and let you run with it.

That would be good! If they are all similar, i'm sure I can do a discount for you. If you can send me an email explaining what kind of similarities and differences each one would have I can give you a quote.

I always prefer environments and big scenes. Of course that's what I love to draw most, but I feel that it gives an epic, big scale to the world of the book before you even open it. I like to think it helps at least :) Please send me an email though. We certainly don't need to start anytime soon but I can't promise my rates and waiting times won't go up.

Thanks Timothy!

I just sent you the email, before seeing this post.

I don't know how much similarity there would be between books, but you would be able to judge that better than I would.

Whats your waiting time at the moment?

Drooling as well. Fantastic Jeff. I'll be coming your way as well just not yet. But...do have a question. Do you have a link to any finished covers with typography? I want to see how your complete designs look.

Thanks!

Absolutely stunning! My favorite is the one with the ziggurat. At least, it looks like a ziggurat.

Maybe we should not have a discussion about how to make your own covers in the middle of a professional artist's thread? Maybe? :)

Thank you for this, dear.

I'd just like to add my endorsement for this artist. He did three digital paintings for me and I'm very happy with the results. The books aren't out yet, and won't be for a while, but I'm confident that the $450+ investment will be well worth it. It's more expensive to have bad cover art because of all the books you won't sell.

Jeff was very responsive and professional. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him for future projects.
