Empyrean by Hector Gonzalez

My name is Hector Gonzalez

Did you design the cover?
Yes. I designed the cover in a very primitive way, my artistic skills are lacking.

Did your publisher design the cover?
No. I didn't like their artists.

Did you get to give any input about the cover design?
Of course, an author should automatically have that privilege.

Is there an interesting story behind the cover design? If so, please share the details.
It was created in a weeks time.

Who is the cover artist?
Thomas Brierly

Are you happy with the cover?
I am ecstatic
If not, what would you change and why?
It's exactly how I wanted it to be, though I could not draw it myself.

Tell us what you think is the best part of the cover.
The sword. I thought finding someone to portray the swords as I saw them would be near impossible given their detail, but my artist got it done in one try.

Is there anything else about your cover that we need to know? Feel free to share.
The cover gives an insight to the surrounding throughout most the story and another glance at it after completing the story will give a view of what will come next.

What is the link to buy your book?
