#CoverReveal & #giveaway – SEEKING SORROW by Zen Dipietro #Fantasy #SF #romance

Welcome to the cover reveal for Guardians of Terath: Seeking Sorrow by Zen DiPietro! This is a modern fantasy with sci-fi and romantic elements. It is being published by Soul Mate Publishing on March 25 and will be available for preorder on March 14th.


About the Book:

An earth-like world of high-tech humans faces the reality that their world is not as safe as they thought it was. Five people are thrown together to quietly get to the bottom of an unfathomable mana event that must stay quiet. If the population of Terath becomes aware of the truth, it will spark a civil war. That war would pit the majority of the population against the powerful minority with the ability to harness and manipulate mana. The resulting cataclysm would decimate the population and tear apart the foundation of society.
The five people chosen for this must reconsider everything they thought they knew about manaeven as they learn to trust one another’s abilitiesThey must embrace everything they never wanted in order to prevent the devastation of their world. One of them will be forever changed. Love will be denied, badassery will be unleashed, and Terath will never be the same. 
Even success comes at a price.

  1. Gee, if the characters of SEEKING SORROW are only half as gnarly as the author, then this will have to be a badass book!

    You meet the most interestiing people on this blog!

    Thanks, Deborah!
    Cheers, Zen!
    Your pal,

    1. Cool cover too, huh?


  2. Dang it, Deborah, I realized as soon as I hit the ‘Post Comment’ button, that I did not mention the cover, on this cover reveal, post.
    {Does anybody else realize their embarassing grammatical errors, misspellings, and other mistakes, just as they press the ‘post’ button?}

    Yes, I do very much like the cover! Sometimes, less is more. Just getting a tiny glimpse of the badass chicks lovely peepers conveys much, but also leaves a sense of allure. There must be a gorgeous babe behind the veil and robes!
    It is also a departure from the tantalizations of bare skin. Not that there is anything wrong with hot, half-naked folks dripping from every book cover, but this cover is a refreshing break.

    I am shown, not told, what this book contains. The cover is not cluttered with description. I am informed by the font, the sword, the badass chick, the stark woods, and the snow.

    I like it that the title of the book is larger than the authors name.
    {Sorry Zen, nothing against you, I just think the title should always be bigger than the authors name, no matter their big shot status.}

    The stylized design and decorations of the sword give a hint of royalty or heirarchy for the characters, as well as furthering the fantasy angle.

    The single, ninja warrior woman informs me of female badassery.

    The blood red transparent prism might be a hint toward an element of the paranormal.

    In summation,
    Cheers, Ladies!
    Your pal,


    1. I agree with you all the way, Icky. An excellent summation of this great cover.
      And yes, I’m always doing that with comments, then searching for the ‘edit’ button, which of course isn’t there unless it’s your own site!


  3. […] author’s name was unnecessary and came across as amateurish. Another writing friend whom I admire, Deborah Jay, suggests that a book’s cover should be honestly and accurately indicative of the content. My […]
