Jason McAnelly

Biography

It has been a long journey from conception to completion, but at last my book is done and availble to share with the world. Hopefully people will find themselves as entranced while reading it as I was while writing it. And hopefully events will conspire to make this my full-time job, thus enabling me to get the next in the series out in less than the three years it took me for the first one.

Smashwords Interview

How do you approach cover design?
The cover for my book comes from an incredibly talented team of friends. Hollyfay Compton did the watercolor and eroticbuddha(.com) did the designwork for it. After reading some of the first drafts of my story, Holly painted the picture you see on the cover. When I saw her rendition of Jasmine, I knew that I wanted it. It captures the melancholy yet fantastical world I've tried to create while avoiding the cliche fantasy art that seems to dominate the market these days.
For future covers, I will be returning to Holly and another friend of mine. I believe that crafting a book is the result of the efforts of many people, and I would prefer that the people who have the strongest hand in shaping my book are those that are closest to me.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
This is an impossible question!
If I had to pull five right off the top of my head though...
1) Neuromancer - William Gibson
2) Sandman (comic series) - Neil Gaiman
3) The Idiot - Fyodor Dostoevsky
4) War and Peace - Leo Tolstoy
5) V for Vendetta (graphic novel) - Alan Moore
