What the new Dragoneer Saga hardcover books will look like.
This is what the dust jacket of The Royal Dragoneers, The Dragoneer Saga book One, will look like unfolded. In a few days we should have an actual book to take pictures of. We managed to pay for book one's two cover formats, and the interior, out of pocket, so that everyone could see what they will be getting. Each book has a different page count and a different ISBN barcode, so the base template (the measurements you can see below our image) are different for every book format, and exclusive to that book, because the barcode comes with the template. I won't bore you with all of this, but it isn't as easy as just pasting the next colored cover and changing the text.
I have a feeling these are going to look great. Just imagine the deep red, aquamarine, emerald, and sapphire blue front cover images on a similar cover template like the one above.
I'm looking forward to seeing the resulting proof book this week.
You know what they say... So far, so good, so what!
I will take many pictures of the book one "proof" hardcover when it comes in Tuesday. Thank you to all who have helped so far. M. R. Mathias
