Book Cover for Into the Land of Iowah
Posted on November 15th, 2011
As I’m sure is not a surprise, I’m hard at work on another novel with the working title, Into the Land of Iowah. Here’s the blurb:
Vagus, a wizard from the realm of Amishan, loses a battle and is banished to the most heinous land his enemy can think of: a corn field in the middle of present-day Iowa. In a land where all people know of magic is from the movies, he’s convinced there’s no worse place to be. With the help of a trucker named Bob, Vagus must find his way back home in time to rescue his friends.
It’s intended to be a humorous fantasy novel in the vein of A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Terry Pratchett’s novels.
While there is still a lot of work left to do on the novel, I was lucky enough to befriend a talented artist, Chris Osman.Â He’s created a cover concept for Into the Land of Iowah, and I think it’s pretty awesome.Â There’s still time to make adjustments, so feel free to comment if there’s something you think should change.Â Of course, comments like “this is an awesome cover” and “I can’t wait until it’s ready” are also welcome.Â 🙂
What do you think? I’d love to hear it!
