Makeover for the Talisman Trilogy

Soooooooo.... I have some exciting news. After much waffling, I've decided to give The Talisman series a makeover.

Many of you know I was the designer of the original covers. I wasn't sure what I wanted the cover to say when I designed The Emerald Talisman two years ago for it's release. Now, that I'm a little more seasoned in my craft (I think) I stumbled across an image I loved (the emerald talisman cover now) that depicted Julia like nothing else I'd seen and wanted to use on Onyx. But the issue was putting a girl on the cover wouldn't match the rest of the series. So, for fans, I kept the same theme and used the beatiful pink/orange sunset. But still, that cover nagged at me to use it. So when designing my swag for my upcoming conference in Chicago April 11th-15th, I had a perfect opportunity to debut the new covers. I've learned you can't shut up characters and apparently you can't shut up covers either.

So.... without further ado, here they are:

Ebooks will have the new covers this week, but the physical books may take a little for them to change. I plan to have the new covered Onyx Talisman's for the RT Booklovers Conference in April if you want to see me and get your signed copy, April 12th. Personally, I can't wait to see them all in print! Eep!

What do you think? Love 'em? Hate 'em? Or... torn because you loved the original ones? Me too. The originals will always have a wonderful place in my heart!

Hugs, Brenda
