Well, "The Land Between Days" launches in just five days! It will not be immediately available on Wattpad, but you'll still be able to read it right here (for free) on my blog. I can't wait! Until then, I have a couple of surprises in store for this post: the cover and the teaser itself.
I'm really excited about this cover. It resembles a lot of the teaser graphics that I've already been sharing (all of which reference a certain concept in the book). Here it is!
This is personally one of my favorite covers I've done for any of my short stories. I like how the pink contrasts the black and white background. "What is all that pink about anyway?" you might be thinking. Today, you'll get some answers in the teaser!
As promised, here is a short excerpt from the story. It isn't a very long story (a fact which those of you with busy schedules will no doubt enjoy), so this paragraph doesn't give away too much. I hope it will just give you a taste for what to expect in the story when it drops. Here goes!
When Morgan awoke, he found himself not in the light of an orange, flickering streetlamp in the shadowy alleyway, but, instead, in the morning sun’s golden light in the middle of a wood. Instead of cold concrete, he lay upon a soft bed of fallen leaves. He shook his head, sending a dull pain down his face. Gingerly, he rose, not fully realizing the peculiarity of his sudden appearance in a forest. The shush of leaves in the towering trees was the only noise around him, and the fresh air the only smell. As he surveyed the imposing trees, he noticed a strange sort of pink luminescence that traveled between them like fireflies and seemed to breathe a vigorous new life into their leaves. He shut his eyes and opened them a few times, but he did not wake. He did not recall such a wood anywhere near Cincinnati, and he certainly was not dreaming--so, where was he?
What do you think about the excerpt? And what about the cover? Let me hear you in the comments below & be sure not to miss the launch of "The Land Between Days" on May 4th.
I'm a sci-fi/fantasy lover & writer who especially likes talking about Star Wars and futuristic tech. I like finding new things & finding the beauty in old things, especially in my "Everyday Snippets" series. I hope you'll join me on my blog and unleash your imagination!
