Cat's Eye Book Cover by CrystallineEssence Cat's Eye Book Cover by CrystallineEssence
Art by :iconjdillon82:

This is the cover of my novel, Cat's Eye. I made the cover design, but please be aware that the art on the cover was done by Julie Dillon and you should check out her account, it rocks!

Summary: A noble girl, an assassin, and a soul-stealing necklace... what more could go wrong? Sora always dreamed of adventure, but not like this. After being kidnapped by an assassin, she finds herself dumped into a dangerous world of thieves, mercenaries, and magic. A vengeful sorcerer is hot on the assassin's heels, and thanks to her Cat's Eye necklace, it falls into Sora's hands to save the assassin's life. Unfortunately, her necklace has as much an appetite for souls as it does for magic, and it is becoming even more of a danger than the sorcerer that hunts them.

Now she must travel with an unlikely band of outlaws to discover the mysteries of the Cat's Eye, the secrets of her past, and how to destroy a man whose power is more than legendary.

To read a sample and buy the book, go here: Cat's Eye Store

Wow thank you so much! Yeah I wrote the book because I kept looking for stories with this kind of plot but couldn't find exactly what I wanted to read, so decided to write it myself. :) It's the winner of the SKOW best fantasy award -- you can read a sample and other stories of mine here: www.crystalmaiden.com.

Just have to say, I haven't even read the book, but I already know I'm going to love it when I get my hands on it. It's exciting for me to find a professional writer on DA, :glomp: (it's my own dream) and with such a beautiful cover & description, too! I'm looking forward to reading your novel. :excited:

it's a bit euh.. let's say sad, that (international) shipping should be more expensive than the whole booke...
Reply

CrystallineEssence Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2008
There is an ebook version available, if you are interested.

It is because international shipping is by priority mail only, so it will arrive super fast once it's shipped out.

Yeah, I'm a horror writer. I'm kinda-sorta writing fantasy under a pen name, but horror's my real passion, which makes fantasy harder to write, lol. I can only write fantasy when I'm in the mood.

:iconcrystallineessence:
CrystallineEssence Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2008
Lol, you and I are the opposite in that way, but that's cool, I always love reading a good horror story. Do you plot out your horror books or do you just write them on inspiration? I always thought horror has a bit of mystery to it, which for me always required some intense plotting. :)
Reply
:iconkody-boye:
Kody-Boye Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2008
Sometimes I outline my horror books when I can't think of stuff. I had to outline almost half of my 100,000-word novel I just finished. I'm doing the same wit hthe sequel, which I'm writing now.

Most of the time, I just get an idea and I write it. It's like my 'Storm Gods' short piece I have up. It's the beginning of a story that got inspired by a photomanipulation I did.

Oh, yes; mystery DOES involve lots of plotting if youi want it to be good, lol.
