Good morning lovely people! With my next book coming out in June, I've been browsing around looking at pretty things
Let me explain what all the fuss is about. In Gethyon, my young hero's prized possession is a device called a CHI - Crystalline Holographic Imager. It's a large, hexagonal clear crystal capable of projecting holographic panoramas. In Gethyon's case, it's an astronomical display, which leads him into trouble. But I digress... Here are the pretties, and the reasons I've chosen each.
|Option One - Clear|
For option one I give you - the CHI! Well, not a real one obviously, but this is exactly how I saw the device in my head, and I couldn't believe my luck when I found these. But maybe a clear one is a bit dull? It's certainly not going to produce all the beautiful and terrible images Gethyon sees in the real thing, but catch the light and it'll sparkle brighter than a Twilight vampire.
|Option Two - Green|
Now, as you may have noticed from the cover image for Gethyon at the top of this post, green features quite heavily in the artwork. Isn't that nova background just gorgeous?! My young hero has green eyes too. So maybe the CHI crystal in glorious green? It's not emerald, I'm sorry to say, but it is a pretty colour. Do you sense a certain favoritism here?
|Option Three - Black|
Lastly, there's this one. Looks a bit menacing, right? The villain of this piece is a dark, amorphous entity called the Siah-dhu - cue dramatic music along the lines of Darth Vader's Imperial March or something. So a black crystal would symbolize that very nicely. Or maybe not? I just can't decide!
So those are my three choices which I must decide between. Of course, I'd lurve to buy all three and give them away, but alas! I can't afford it. I have to have some pennies left to buy cookies, coffee, and to pay my therapist. However, there will be other goodies to go with the giveaway in June when I begin my tour for Gethyon, so I hope you'll come back then and see which option won. Because I'm going to keep the results a secret until then, shhhhh!
