Heart Journey Cover Scene


All right I've been giving it some thought. The background in Heart Journey is not Del's estate in Druida City, nor Raz's family's estate. It's not the city itself. It's not Gael City or Raz's family's home there (though I suppose I could put it there).

The background is NOT an alpine-like spot in their journey through the Hard Rock mountains. Mentor pointed out that it could be part of the Great Labyrinth and I think that would work -- but Raz is never IN the Great Labyrinth...so the best I could do, I think, is to add a few paragraphs of Del dreaming, this will be near the end of the book.

So is it important to you that the scene is in the book or not? (And I will have to add the symbol for Lugh's Spear and Raz's tatt -- I thought it would be on his chest).

Gimme opinions here.

May you enjoy the art of the world today.

I can't say it matters to me one way or the other whether the scene depicted on the cover is actually in the book (assuming, of course, that it's not 100% different from the story/book/world; I mean, if there's a spaceship on the cover, but it's a historical, then yeah, I have a problem).

Helpful, I know. Sorry.

Well, if you have seen the forests in Washington and Portland, in USA and British Columbia, BC, this looks very much like it. A bit cold to go shirtless unless middle of the Summer and even then can be too cold!

I was going to say the same thing as Anon did. The lushness of the forest does not remind me of the Amazon Jungle, but, more of the forests that you would find in the Northwest. Does the couple ever get up to the Great Bog? I don't think that the cover not matching would be too much of a problem, unless of course, the story takes place on the ocean or in the desert.

I'm okay with a cover not matching as long as the character depicted isn't totally different then the description in the book, i.e. blonde picture with redheaded character, etc.
