"The Fairy's Ruby Cage"

Front cover... I'd love to hear your comments as I designed it myself in Photoshop. This book's release is coming very soon!

I really like the font. The authors name being semi-transparent is interesting, as well. Kinda mysterious.

Very nice cover! it looks enchanting with the quote above the title and author! *claps*! Which one is coming first, The Fairy's Rube Cage or Kestrel's Midnight Song?

Do you know when Flaming Pen Press will be open to submissions?


Sorry for all the questions! I had a few!

I like the font and the whole idea - I think the front is a bit too cartoonish to really *attract* Young Adults, but the idea and layout is really cool, because it gives you the feeling there's something powerful and mysterious there.

I second Chris. The font rocks :)

I do like the semitransparent author's title...but it's almost a little too transparent for me. Maybe outline it in white or something? ::shrugs:: I dunno

I really like it :)

"The Fairy's Ruby Cage" is coming out this Spring 2010.
"Kestrel's Midnight Song" releases sometime after November (at the earliest) Most likely it will be on shelves Spring 2011.

How great to find another writer committed to showing God's truth to the world! I was filled with joy when I read the paragraphs at the top of your blog!

Your cover is wonderful. I think it will draw readers in very well.

May God guide your pen.

Pst, you do know its not HIS cover right ST my man--er...I mean...girl?

Scott Appleton said...

Maybe 'Storyteller' was referring to the next novel I am writing in my own series?

But, if not, make sure everyone knows: THE FAIRY'S RUBY CAGE is authored by P.M.M. Green... not by me! It's just being published through my house Flaming Pen Press.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Erm, I was referring to whoever designed "The Fairy's Ruby Cage" with with Photoshop. I know Sir Appleton did not write it, but I assumed that since the blog post was in first tense, he had designed the cover. Apologies if I was wrong. I do like the cover, though. :)

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
