Back in the heady days of Summer 2016, when we were wrapping up some final edits to ICEFALL, we ran across a really cool artist who had done some fantastic work for other Sci-Fi projects and were given a chance to grab his work for the cover of ICEFALL.
When we got a copy of the artwork, we were simply floored. It was beautiful. Packed with detail, the cover image had all the things within the novel, all packed onto the cover. But, we learned, having a crowded cover is not always a great thing. Slowly, we learned that for e-books, having a cover with a simple style fit in more with the market.
ICEFALL stood out, but not in a good way. THE CLEARSKY CHRONICLES is a distinct departure from either young adult or science fiction in that it’s not pushing a tried and true narrative. We wanted the cover to reflect that departure. Those of you who’ve read the first six episodes know this.
Our response to feedback has caused us to make a change to the cover of ICEFALL.
Since the changeover in cover images takes longer to propagate than the e-book version, the print copy with the original cover is soon to be a collector’s item.
