Sneak Peak – Via Serica

OK, folks, need opinions on this.

Here’s the rough draft of the ebook cover for the Romans book:

Via Serica Kindle Cover

And here’s the idea I have for the back-cover blurb:

Marcus Aemelius Paullus has a problem – He is playing with fire by falling in love with the wrong woman.

Appius Plinius also has a problem – He has a unit full of warriors who continually get themselves, and him, into trouble.
Caesar Augustus has a solution to their problems, but it may cost them their lives.

What do you all think?

    So, when can I buy it? 🙂

    • It’s currently with the alpha readers. I’m hoping to publish in the August-September timeframe.

  2. “Like”

  3. For your blurb, get in touch with Miss D. Seriously. She’s been studying the subject in depth over the past couple of months, and she has some seriously good ideas and input.

  4. Too wordy. Drop reference to fire in first.
    Contrast the 2 problems. Second – a unit of trouble-making warriors.
    Third guy’s “solution” may get them killed or be a final solution or . . .

  5. I think wordpress just ate my reply. Check your email on blurb.

    On cover: needs an image. Font may or may not work, but your current market competition looks like this (assuming you’re doing alt-historical. If fantasy, still needs an image, but different set.)

    • Thanks. I’m getting an image made. The font is close to what I want but I’m still working on that.
