A Gift Of The Stars [Book 1 of The Tales of Zren Janin]
M. L. Dunker
Descripción del libro
The first book in the five book series. --- Every child in Lowertown learns quickly if they want to avoid a dance with Trouble to run away, lie convincingly, and never show curiosity or ask questions of the wrong people. When Red awakens at the side of the road to Aldi he knows only two things, he is no longer in Lowertown and he is looking into the beautiful dark eyes of a West Islander, one who has no more business in the wild frontier of Kerek than Red does. Trouble has come to dance. The West Islander, Ngahuru, is blessed with 'a gift of the stars.' In their storytelling tradition, a soul who passes too close to the Constellations on the way to earth is born with patches of white on their dark brown skin. She is also a Softfoot (spy) of the West Islands assigned to guard the ambassador's children in Kerek City. She speaks several languages and has trained for the diplomatic corps (Diplo) nearly all her life. When the ambassador of the West Islands is murdered on his way to visit the Kerek King, and the ambassador's wife is falsely arrested and executed for inciting treason, the frantic race to get back to the West Islands begins. But, as all who seek her discover, Ngahuru is more than pots of paint and clever disguises. Disguised as Willow, a Kereki street boy, and her brother, Koanga, a Storyteller to the King, flee Kerek City. They find a Conrosan, "Red," injured by the side of the road to Aldi. Red joins Koanga and Willow, as they flee through Kerek to try to reach the Matasi ports. The West Islanders hope to find a ship to take them home. Red learns life is more than survival and his adventures are only beginning. --- This is more than a BIPOC, LBTGQA+ series. Sometimes what we hate or love most about ourselves is what may help or harm us in the end. We need more diverse stories. We all need to be seen in our stories.

Necesidades de diseño
I really like the covers of the following books: The Dry by Jane Harper The Kingdom of Ten thousand Things by Gary Geddes Two Rivers by T. Greenwood Dust by Hugh Howey I like high contrast fonts between title and background (white on dark, black on light) I want all five books in the series to look like they belong together like The Wolves of Mercy Falls Trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater (Shiver, Linger, Forever) or the Outlander paperbacks (by Diana Gabaldon) with the symbols running across the spines.
Lo que debe evitarse
Is there anything designers should avoid? I am not a fan of people’s faces or photographs on the cover. I don’t want hard to read fonts like Girl wash your face by Rachel Hollis or Pushing the Bear by Diane Glancy. I want someone to be able to read it from across the room in a bookstore or those itty bitty thumbnails on Amazon. Additional budget for stock imagery: $29-$49
