(Oh, yeah. And the blog tour starts tomorrow.)
But the reason for the updated cover? We got quite a bit of feedback after the reveal that it had more of a romance or regency feel than inspirational fantasy. Cover artist Sara Helwe of Sara Helwe Digital Arts knew exactly what to do and sent us this slightly altered version, which both the author and the design team fell in love with. We hope you love it too!
And now for the blog tour!
Tomorrow kicks off this wonderful celebration of our latest release from Kristen Stieffel with the first two blog posts. Gretchen Engel gives a stirring review of Alara’s Call, and Catherine Bonham introduces our readers to Kristen Stieffel with an interview.
Be sure to check out the rest of the posts this week and next for behind-the-scenes tidbits, reviews, interviews, and visual posts. We hope you will fall in love with this stunning world Stieffel has created!
We cannot wait for you to read this incredible new book!
