You will no doubt have noticed the name and cover switch. After some feedback from beta readers it became clear that the cover and title needed to change. I had been thinking of the story as The Pilgrim Star since before I started actually writing it and only after some feedback did I realize how poorly it served the actual novel I had written. The Dragon Star works much better for a number of reasons, the least of which is that it makes the genre of the novel perfectly clear.
And while I liked the original cover quite a bit, it only did two of the three things I’ve realized a cover needs to do: stand out on the page and catch the eye among similar books, evoke some sort of response or feeling, and declare the book’s genre. I think the new cover succeeds on all three counts much more successfully.
So, if you’ve enjoyed Episodes 1-3 (which you can get for FREE by signing up for the newsletter) the full novel will be out on January 2.
