Hello Dan,

Thank you for coming and talking to us.  I don't know about anyone else, but I know that's part of the reason I love EUOL's stuff so much is his interaction with the fans.

I love the alternate cover, but I do think that the cover that is being used is the better one.  Would it be possable though to add a bit more to the background because it's kind of dull.
"The custom of royalty in referring to oneself is to naturally employ the royal 'we'.  We are very happy, we are very sad, we are bored and suffer from ennui.  For a royal prince there's no such word as 'me', It's always 'we'.  So rightfully I should be two or three, don't you agree?"

A bit late for that, Rose. :)
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

*sigh*  Oh well.  I figured if nothing else, it was worth asking, right?  Even if I am late.

A little addition here, if I may.  I actually asked for Mr. Dos Santos by name.  I'd been following his work for a while, and enjoyed a lot of what Irene had been posting on her blog regarding him.  So, when she asked me for my thoughts on a Warbreaker cover, I spoke up and asked for him.

I love this cover.  I've always said that I, personally, prefer a cover that is good visually to one that exactly replicates a scene or character from the book.  I think this is striking and distinctive, and will really stand out on the shelf. 

Excellent work, Dan, and thank you for stopping by to speak with my readers.

I just wanted to say  that both versions of the cover would have made me pick up the book :) I like lots of color, shadow, and the lettering would have interested me as well. Thank you Dan for coming and giving us a peek at your other ideas and the thought processes that you use to get where you are going with your art. I love the cover, by the way :D

Ok, so I'm a little lazy, and busy with exams, papers and cocky wannabe-god-like Profs to do the research, but does anyone here know when can I go BUY a copy of Warbreaker? I have the online copy, but I am DYING to get my hands on a HC!!!
thanks

Not until next year. They are still going thru edits, I believe.

You are right Ness, according to Brandon's ticker on his site, he is 95% through the copyedit for Warbreaker :)

I actually like the mock up you posted, better than what will be the cover.  Don't get me wrong, I like both, but...
I must not fear;
Fear is the mind killer;
I will face my fear;
I will let it pass through me;
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing;
Only I will remain.

I was browsing through here, and saw that there were a LOT of questions regarding my intentions for this cover.
I figured I would register to answer some of them.

Thanks, Dan, for answering all our questions! I think the cover looks great!
