I thought I'd post the draft cover copy of God Tattoo to see what people think. It's not something I think I've entirely got my head around, how best to describe/sell a collection in a few sentences. Might be of course that it doesn't matter and fans of the series will buy it anyway while no one else would, but one's not required reading for the other so I hope that won't be the case. Anyways…
What does this do for you? Bored? Intrigued? Excited? Enthused? Annoyed? Sleepy? Aroused? Apoplectic?
The God Tattoo, and other stories of the Land:
The history of the Land may remember the slaughter at Moorview or the horror of Scree’s fall, but there were other casualties of the secret war against Azaer – more tales surrounding those bloody years that went unrecorded. In the shadow of memorials to the glorious dead, these ghosts lie quiet and forgotten by all but a few.
A companion collection to the Twilight Reign quintet, these eleven stories shine a rather different light on the Land. Look past the armies and politics of the Seven Tribes and you will find smaller moments that shaped the course of history in their own way. But even forgotten secrets can kill. Even shadows can have claws.
