    No, the committee is reviewing it along with dozens of other books. Depending on how quickly they make the final revisions, late 2013 is the earliest

    Would you place the book title at the top of each test shot, with the series name at bottom? I think the art needs to be more visible in the center of each image and would like to see how it comes across.:) Otherwise, I think they are both fantastic.

    And for another pov, could u paste Chronicles of the Emperor @ the top, with book title/ your name at bottom?

    Thanks! In the final releases, it would be for example "The Dragons Are Here" in the largest font, with the logo beneath it following with the series title in smaller fonts, then the book title in a larger font, and then my name in a smaller font. The logo will appear at the bottom.

    And for those asking:

    Welcome to Carphephellia®, a world whose decadent façades enshroud deep mysteries lurking in every corner. The truth is often the victim and lies feed the dangerous games for power. In the very center of this struggle lies the powerful Tsarskí® family. The Tsarskís® rule the country of Fihyyynia® with an iron fist, their façade of a happy family a pretense. In reality the Tsarskís mentally torture their children, forcing siblings to turn on one another for power. It is a game of chess, in which the players who make the wrong move die. When other shadowy figures begin to strike their own deals with the players of the Tsarskí family however, the Tsarskí motto: “Kill or be killed” becomes more true than ever before and the price to pay for the wrong move is far more deadly than just one death.

    A key for the series is that I try not to play by conventional methods. Instead of completely changing characters, often as I can, I complicate the characters, making it much harder for people to root for them completely. The Chronicles of the Emperor(R) is not a pure fantasy series, it is a series that coalesces the modern and fantasy world to create something more new. The series, through its many characters and plot twists, stands to challenge conventionalism, society, and morality in general. What is anarchy truly? To what lengths could someone go for power before that line is inevitably breached, and what is power? Is it something so utterly desirable that one's family becomes mere collateral damage for it? The series also brings forth the issues of human trafficking, sexism, and corruption in government and organized religion to the forefront.

    So, it's like The Witcher then? Grimdark grimdark, modern slang and advanced chemistry contrasted against 13th century aesthetic while talking about sexism and horrible human beings?

    Sounds like something I'll like. Your description of the characters and how you'll complicate them, a mix of modern and fantasy sounds like some of my favorite stories.

    Really, your description could be any number of things and that was the closest approximation I could guess.

    The Lord of the Rings with dragons... could be The Hobbit. :p

    Anyway... @AkashKedavra_93 : good luck with the books.

    Damn, some dude gave me a bad survey and wrote "I don't know" in the comments. Really? You don't know why you did that to me?

    There's fantasy definitely but there's overall little resemblance to Lord of the Rings in terms of plot. I can't divulge much more than that to be honest until the editor allows me to do so.

    No, no different. Only different in your mind.

    "Tip" as in a tip for the restaurant where you work?

    Yeah, I'd wonder about the "how did they get my address?" thing too...

    You should. The Hobbit and the LOTR trilogy are the best works of fantasy ever IMO, although I can think of some good contenders (Eragon, the Percy Jackson series).

    Good luck @AkashKedavra_93.
