Cover Reveal: Dragon Shaman Book One - Taming the Blowing Wind

Dragon Shaman Book One: Taming the Blowing Wind has received the new cover by Victoria "Salaiek" Davis, the cover artist for Dragon Shaman Book Two: The Smoky Mirror.

May I present the new face for the first book in my series.

I am so excited about this cover. She took the concept that was in the original versions of the cover and took it to a whole new level by bringing in other characters and places from the story. We have Coyote being himself and tailing Blowing Wind, Hawk (whether this is Hawk himself or her father SoaringHawk is up to you...perhaps both), the Dai Tengu (who also shows up in the second book), and a particular red arched bridged, the gap between the worlds... The mountain is Mt. Fuji, but at certain times of the year and from certain angles her sister mountain, Mt. Shasta, looks very similar. Of course, we also have the sea of trees... Every mystical mountain has its own sea of trees around it after all.

BlowingWind Mountain Child slips back and forth between the spiritual world and her own world on a quest for healing and finding the spirit of a lost love. What she must do, break a family curse, answer to the wishes of her former guide is constantly being manipulated by forces beyond her control, both helpful and unhelpful. Ryu finds himself caught up in it and risking the displeasure of his father.

Be watching for the new edition on Lulu, Amazon, Smashwords, Createspace, and other venues.

For those curious about the other editions, there are two earlier cover versions.
The one on the left was an acrylic painting that I did many years ago, and the one on the right is a colored pencil concept art that actually preceded the painting. I like Victoria's rendition much better.
