In Which I Got Picked!

Holy hell guys!

I was the very last cover picked for 30 covers in 30 days!! I can't even believe it! They actually did a bonus cover today and it was me! How crazy is that?!

Here's the link for the post and here's the awesome cover designed for me by Henry Sene Yee:




And here's the synopsis I had whipped up for it:

Glimpse of Another Shore, by Sarah Ahiers:

In a country where one member of each household must serve the navy in the war effort, sixteen year old Pier Arvin is doomed to spend his life as an “exotic” kelp farmer. Lame.

When Pier finds an orphaned sea serpent he decides to keep it as a pet. Everyone knows a serpent will eat a man faster than he can blink so surely the serpent, Rule, will add some excitement to his life.

Joint swims around the reef and close calls with sharks show Pier you don’t have to wear a naval uniform to find action or catch the eyes of pretty girls. But when Rule accidentally injures Pier’s younger sister and then attracts the attention of the enemy navy, Pier realizes the idea of war is very different than the real thing.

Now he has to make a choice, surrender Rule and his town to the enemy, or risk his life in an attempt to free them all.


Yay! Internet hugs for all!

Hi Sarah,

I'm glad they decided to squeeze in your cover. It was a fun synopsis that had great potential for something visually lyrical & emotional. I wish I had more time, I would design a cover for all of these wonderful writers. Good luck with your writing. Maybe I'll get a chance to design your great novel when it gets published

Best, Henry
