The book is called The Royal Gift. It's the first in a fantasy series for young adults, set in a kingdom that doesn't have modern technology. This book follows the first story of Raneth and Aldora.
What's your vision?
Hi guys. If you have any questions, please ask. Book title: The Royal Gift Author: Drae Box Tagline (optional): She seeks a dagger. He hunts a murderer. Design Possibilities: There's a few different ones, so I'll briefly outline them first and then go more into detail further down. A) Aldora running in a dense wood along a beaten path. B) Aldora and Raneth surrounded by enemies with their weapons draw. C) The Dagger of Protection. Description of Aldora: Female, five foot four with light pink skin. Brown eyes and brown, almost black hair which is kept in a ponytail at the back of her head. She wears a pair of brown cotton trousers and a plain top. Petite curves and is around 16 years old. She carries a plain sword on her right hip, attached to a brown belt. Description of Raneth: He's six foot seven, with tanned skin. Blue eyes and short black hair. He carries a sword on the left side of his blue belt. His bodily build is wiry. As for clothes, Raneth can normally be found wearing his uniform - a pair of black ankle-high boots, a pair of blue trousers with different shades of blue across them in splodges and a dark long-sleeved navy blue cotton top. Description of the Dagger of Protection: a small dagger with a gold coloured blade and a silver hilt which has jets and diamonds gems embedded into the hilt. It can strike opponents with lightning, so if you feel inclined to have some lightning curling round it, please do! *Description of Raneth in his griffin-self: A mostly lion body - all four paws are that of a lion, but his body is covered in feathers. The majority of his body has white feathers, with the exception being the very tip of his ears and tail (red), and across the front of his chest, red starts to appear among the white feathers until all of his front legs (and paws) are completely red. His ears are like that of a cat's, but the head itself is a yellowed-beak bird of prey (again, with feathers). Eyes are a gold colour.
You don't have to stick to the three suggestions for the design. As long as it has either one of the characters or the Dagger on it, I'll probably be happy as long as it fits in with a scene in the book. If you have an idea about what you want to submit but are not sure if it'll fit, please ask! All enemies, Raneth and Aldora are human. I prefer drawn illustration for book covers and not the style that includes a photograph of an actual person, but I am willing to consider both styles. If a winning entry is selected, credit will be given in the book and if you have a website, I will make sure that is included.
