Cover Reveal: Estelan by Trace Broyles

One of the best things about being involved in the Virtual Ebook Fair Facebook event is all the fabulous authors you get to meet. Trace Broyles and I are connected in at least one other Facebook group, thanks to the amazing Melissa Foster. But she put the call out in the networking group for the Virtual Ebook Fair for people to host her new cover reveal, and I quickly agreed to help her. What goes around comes around and all that…

It’s no secret to most any indie author that your cover will either help sell (or not sell) your book, depending on how it strikes your potential readers. For that reason, the cover is most assuredly one of the most critical elements you need to consider when it comes to publishing your book.

One of the great things about being an indie author is that you can choose to change your cover whenever you want, and no one can stop you. That’s what Ms. Broyles has done. She’s changed her cover to more accurately fit her story and to more effectively appeal to readers.

This is her “cover story” in her own words. And look below to see her fantastic new cover. Let’s all welcome Ms. Trace Broyles…

Sometimes a book needs a face lift.  After some discussion with my incredibly talented cover artist we decided ESTELAN was in need of a little nip/tuck.  However, I had no idea that this procedure would result in something so magical.  There are not words to thank my dear friend, Barbara Ivie Green, for her amazing work on my new cover.  Her depiction of female warrior Kitin is better than anything I could have imagined and I cannot wait to see her larger than life on my banner at Fandom Fest at the end of the month.  For now, I am VERY pleased to present the new cover for ESTELAN featuring Kitin.


ESTELAN is available in ebook format where ebooks (AmazonBarnes&NobleSmashwordsSony) are sold and in paperback via Createspace Store and Amazon.

Fantasy author Trace Broyles

Trace Broyles spent her childhood writing plays and short stories. Unfortunately works like “Adventures of Super Cookie” were never released to the masses. When not writing, Ms. Broyles often was found with her nose in a book or on a softball diamond.

She graduated from Miami University with a degree in psychology and minor in criminology. After several years in the professional world, she stopped brainstorming in journals and started writing again. ESTELAN is Ms. Broyles’ debut novel and first in the young adult epic fantasy series of the same name. The sequel, ECHO RISING is in progress.

Trace Broyles resides with her family in Seattle, WA, where her two children keep her active and entertained.
