I like working on Photoshop and Canva in my free time. I get inspired by visuals. So, here are a few covers I came up with. I am just about to write outlines on them. The first three will be part of a trilogy of stories that are offshoots of the Mogochislenia (The Royal Witch) series –> The Triquetra.
The first story, “Lullabye,” already has a blurb:
When warlock king Ardere’s wife dies of childbirth, he seeks the services of a nurse for his newborn son. Because of his temper and the general gloom that takes over the palace, few women volunteer to take on the role. One of them is the pretty Roza, a fairy using a glamor to disguise herself as a mortal woman.
Roza’s former lover Dorian is the king of the fairies. He is disturbed by the climate changes in Prozeus. His hatred, however, goes back centuries, as he blames mortal men for the dire plight of the fairies. He believes that warlocks and demigods have forgotten about the life that was razed by the heat underneath the desert sands. Dorian orders Roza to take Ardere’s baby and use him as a sacrifice to appease their gods. The only other option was to make him serve as a slave. Forever.
The new nurse bides her time, gaining everyones’ trust and love, including the testy Ardere’s own, much to her surprise – and his. She is torn between loyalty to her kind and a love that may raise her from her lowly status. Leaving a changeling will help her keep both, but will she lose Ardere forever when he discovers she is part of a plot against his kingdom?
Lullabye – Ardere and Roza (loss of a wife)
Tourniquet – Magda and Pedro/Simon and Celeste (separation of twins)
Salve – Alex (Alexander Xavier) and Zinnia (loss of a sibling)
The last cover is a standalone, a dark fairy tale about a woman who was “rescued” from an asylum by a mysterious man.
The covers can still change.
