Major #edit and a new book cover! The Battle for Brisingamen

Hi everyone. I hope you’re having a good week so far. As of Monday, I started to revise the first book I ever wrote: The Battle for Brisingamen. It’s amazing how much I’ve learnt and grown in the last seven years.

The only way I can do the edit without cringing too much is if I pretend it’s someone else’s book, lols!

I’ve also revamped the book cover. This is the current one:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here’s the revamped one:

 

 

 

I’ll upload this once I’ve uploaded the revision changes too. Iโ€™ve reached chapter four, and this process may take a while along with my other projects. But I’m determined!

 

 

 

 

 

I’d love to know what you think about the new cover, so don’t be shy and leave a reply in the comments below ๐Ÿ™‚

Love the new cover! Congrats on revising your first book. I’d probably end up having a nervous breakdown if I did that to mine.

The new cover is much darker in tone, Harmony. I like the model, the rich colors. Excellent. I also went back and revisited earlier works. It takes time, but I think it makes a lot of sense. It’s amazing how much we grow in our craft, and we want to put our best foot forward since any of our books can serve as a gateway for our readers. Happy Editing!

Congratulations on having the gumption (I love that word!) to go back and re-edit your first book. If I were even ten years younger, I’d do the same thing, but at this point, I decided to look forward not back, so I can tell a couple more stories before retiring.) Good luck on the work ahead. Now for the new cover. OMG. What a major difference. The new one is riveting, dramatic, and makes me want to read this book immediately. (Though I think I’ll wait until you’ve finished your revisions. ๐Ÿ˜€ ) Truly, Harmony, it’s perfect for any tale… Read more »

Yay! … I love the word โ€˜gumptionโ€™ too! I fully understand you not going back. Itโ€™s taken me all these years to get to it.

So delighted you love the cover ๐Ÿ˜. And, yes, definitely wait until Iโ€™ve finished the revisions, ha ha ๐Ÿ˜Š . Thanks, Marcia.

Love the new cover, Harmony. And kudos to you for revising your first novel. I’d hate to even look at mine!

The new cover has much more impact and drama than the first, which is pretty, but doesn’t say ‘here’s a book you MUST read.’

What a great cover. It really stands out to me and I think fits the story more.
