At last, my new series, Song of Sorcery, gets its first installment published. A Sorcerer Rises is done and ready for reading on Amazon. Here is the final cover. With the help of some friends, I tweaked the original below. I’m in the middle of drafting the next book, A Sorcerer Imprisoned. You can see the difference between my first version of the cover and the final product.
Here is the blurb:
Bound to a cruel grandfather, thirteen-year-old Ricky Valian is an orphan and a thief. Compelled to steal a valuable item in a public place, Ricky uses the only trick he knows, a magic trick. His crime doesn’t go unobserved. The Dean of Doubli Academy witnesses the theft and recognizes Ricky’s latent talent, volunteering to become Ricky’s guardian at the boy’s trial. Ricky finds himself, unlettered and untutored in sorcery, in a place filled with students. As he struggles with his unexpected circumstances, Ricky becomes a target of a vicious bully, who may not be above taking the life of someone who gets in his way.
