Behold: The Cover Reveal: Prism by Matthew D. Ryan

It’s time for the Cover Reveal of my next ebook, Prism. Prism is a short, stand-alone novella totally unrelated to my series From the Ashes of RuinI took a break from that series to keep my creative juices flowing.

 

This Cover Reveal of Prism is being hosted today by GoddessFish. Throughout the day today, we will be visiting a large number of blogs on the web, each of which will be sharing a graphic of the cover. We will be responding to comments and inquiries on each of the sites. We will also award a $10 Amazon Gift Card to one randomly selected commenter on the tour (that’s one for the entire tour, NOT one per site).

 

Prism will be released on January 2nd, 2017 and will be available for free download for at least several months. Afterward, I may start charging a buck or two. So, stay on the alert and jump on it when it comes out—you can get your copy for free.

 

The list below is a list of participating sites. Just click on a link to visit any one of the sites; you’ll see the cover and be able to comment. The book has an awesome cover (designed by Digital Donna); I’m sure you’ll enjoy this.

Behold: The Updated New Cover for “Drasmyr”

I’ve been wanting to update the cover of my first novel, Drasmyr, for quite some time. I finally got around to it just this past week or so. If you want to let me know what you think about the new cover, contact me on Twitter: @MatthewDRyan1 . If you wish to purchase the novel in ebook form, click here; or in pbook form, click here (It may be a few days before I upload the new cover to lulu, though). Here are the two covers side by side:

Drasmyr, The Novel

The Original Cover.

DrasmyrRevised

The New Cover.

As you can see, I merely added a few things. I liked the original cover, but I always felt it lacked something. With only the building really being visible on it, it was difficult to figure just what the story was about. You could tell it was meant to be sort of creepy, but that’s about it. And also there is the blood-like writing. That effectively sets a tone, but in my view, having seen it listed next to other covers many times on-line, it looked a little sloppy or even amateurish sometimes. Particularly because it didn’t convert well to thumbnail pics. The blood was unclear and served only to confuse the writing making it difficult to read when small.

As far as the new pic is concerned, I am quite pleased. The female vampire adds some body to the pic, and the sinister cloud vampire does the same. Deciding on the correct pic for the cloud vampire was really a struggle. We went through a number of different options. The first designs involved human-like vampires, but eventually we started experimenting with the cloud. We added a face. Blurred the face. Then emphasized the eyes. And the wolf was a nice add on, too. Overall, I think it makes a much better cover.

So, I’m just doing this private Cover Reveal on my own site and nowhere else to reveal it for the first time. You should feel privileged to view it. Oooh. Ahhh. 🙂

Again, if you want to let me know what you think about the new cover, contact me on Twitter: @MatthewDRyan1 .
