I’m so excited to share with you the official cover for my novel coming soon from Booktrope, Wings of Wax.
The immensely talented designer Shari Ryan created this concept, a vision of a drawing table belonging to the story’s aspiring artist of a protagonist, Angelo Koutouvalis. The “sketch” of the Bay Bridge behind Grecian columns represents the novel’s two settings, the San Francisco Bay Area and Greece.
Since the story is, in one sense, a travel narrative, there’s the imagery of a passport and boarding pass, along with a miniature Greek flag representative of both the country and the protagonist’s pride in his ethnic heritage.
All I did was give Shari a brief description of what I had in my head in regard to a cover, and she did the rest. I’m really happy with the result, and I hope you like it, too. Please leave your thoughts in the comments section. Thanks!
