The Magi Cover

For those of you who have been following for a while, I should have titled it "The NEW Magi Cover" as I technically had another cover.  I had that one for advanced copies sent to reviewers and for my students to read at the beginning of the year.  However, I'm sure you'll agree (if you scroll down and see the other cover), that this one is much more professional. 

                                       -Cover and artwork/design by Jordan Harris-

This is the book's jacket for the (hopeful) hardcover edition.  I say hopeful because while I can finance a handful of printed copies on my own, part of the reason for all the publicity requesting is to get publishers' notice so these editions will become easily available.  

I'd like to take part of this post to thank Jordan Harris for all the work he put into designing the cover for The Magi.  First of all, it's amazing as you can see!  But he was extremely easy to work with and basically took my scrambled thoughts and put them down almost exactly as I imagined it (better than, actually).  If any of you need graphic design or artwork in the computer graphic field, I HIGHLY recommend Jordan! 

This is the cover for the e-books that are available now (but wait until the 14th if you can!).  It will make more sense once you read the story, but a good portion of The Magi has to do with the four elements, and this is their symbol (at least, in the world of the Magi).  Each element is represented by a different color (just like the story), but when they unite, it looks like this.  Again, once you get to about chapter 7, this may make more sense and help with the visualization of the elemental symbols. 

Jordan Harris, you're amazing!
