I never judge a book by its cover but it can be difficult to ignore one so beautiful. I saw this while browsing through Borders and came across this book. I picked it up and looked through the description. I put it back on the shelf but came back to it two more times before I left the store. A week later I returned with a coupon and bought the book, mostly for the cover but I did do a little research on the author and decided to give it a try. Brandon Sanderson is now one of my favorite fantasy authors and I might not have ever learned of his work were it not for your incredible cover illustration. Very excited to see your work here!
