A book cover for "The Deadly Wizard Games" by Scott Spotson, including a back cover. The back cover will say,
What happens when Wizards take over the world, uniting five continents and vowing a better utopia for all?
Seeking liaisons to their new subjects--Mortals as the Wizards call them--the new rulers seek five humans, one per continent. For North America, it's Amanda Fullerton who is chosen by the ruling quartet of Wizards--Indie, Demus, Regi, and Justica.
The Wizards revere several mystic tenets of their civilization, one of them being competitions of magic, which demand cunning and strength. As such, the Wizard Games offer Amanda insight into their ways, as she seeks to learn about the Wizards as much as possible, but this incredible magic also brings danger.
Caught between the Wizards and the Mortals, Amanda finds herself playing both sides until the day arrives when the fate of the entire world is at stake. And in her hands.
This is a Young Adult novel, so please keep that in mind. The intended readership is from 12 to 18 years old.
I have an old cover but I wish a new one (the title has been changed and it has been revised from adult fantasy to young adult fantasy). I will try uploading this cover so you can see it... the Wizards govern their subjects from up high in the sky, amidst the clouds, and they sit on invisible chairs, and there are two young men, and two young women. They all wear black pants, and the two men--one wears a yellow long sleeved shirt, and the other wears a red long sleeved shirt. For the two women, same idea, but one is blue and the other is purple. The blue one is Mexican, so she is Hispanic. When up in the sky making decisions for the people below, they sit in a square-like perimeter, in corners, but you cannot see any square, it is just the idea of how they meet--no tables or props.
One contestant asked me:
- How old are the characters?
Answer: the characters are all 22 years old.
- Is it a paperback on Createspace?
Yes. It is 5.06" by 7.81".
For the spine, it is about 450 pages.
Also, the red-shirted male wizard is like a tall, slender movie star-looking guy with long/brown hair. The yellow-shirted male wizard is a bit shorter, more stocky, and has a dark black hair crew cut. The purple-shirted female wizard has long brown hair, with curls at her shoulders. The blue-shirted female wizard, as said, is Mexican, so she has darker skin and straight long back hair. Amanda herself also has long brown hair and wears normal clothes for a pretty and well-grounded 22-year-old (she's a university student) but is modest in her taste of clothes, sometimes wearing dresses. Of course, I don't expect all five characters on the same cover! The Wizard look exactly look like humans, except they wear those color-themed outfits, which have turtle-neck like collars.
