Just finished the Miira cover, version nth [honestly? I’ve lost track], so I thought I’d celebrate by playing around with a 3D version. I think it turned out okay. 🙂
The new blurb for the back is:
In 2101, the average person can expect to reach one hundred and ten. Miira Tahn, last Lady of Dhurai, is dying at just fifty-two. Faced with a slow, agonizing death, her only hope is a virtual paradise called Innerscape. There, the Residents inhabit beautiful, digital bodies indistinguishable from the real thing.
Or so the brochures say. But even Eden had a snake, and once inducted, the Residents of Innerscape can never return to the real world. If anything goes wrong, they will be lost in the dark forever.
Yet for Miira Tahn, even a tenuous hope is better than the fate that awaits her.
‘…sometimes you just have to close your eyes and jump…’
And finally, underneath the blurb will be this:
‘Miira’ is the first book of the Innerscape cyle and corresponds to Episode 1 of the original series.
After way too much angst, I finally decided to bite the bullet and redo the ebooks as well. Once I’m finished, both print and digital versions will comprise just three books:
- Miira, book 1 = Episode 1 of Innerscape
- The Godsend, book 2 = Episodes 2 and 3 of Innerscape, and
- Nabatea, book 3 = Episodes 4 and 5 of Innerscape.
It’s not an ideal solution, but it’s the only one I can think of that will translate a five-part serial into three, organic story arcs. And as an added bonus, the new splits will allow me to make book 1 permafree…once I persuade Amazon that it’s necessary.
But those are long range plans. For now I’d just like to thank everyone who commented on version 1 of the covers. You’ll never know how valuable your feedback was. Massive hugs all round! Now I’m off to make a pretty toy out of books 2 and 3. 😀
