Chronicles of Colark
C. J. LaPolla
C. J. LaPolla resides in Pennsylvania with his wife and two children. C. J. has mastered the art of writing books in the wee hours of the morning and during lunch breaks. C. J. spends his spare time playing computer games, taking part in Historical European Martial Arts, and dreaming up fantasy worlds that leap out of the histories he creates.
The Jade Plains stretch for hundreds of miles in the hinterlands of Isiir. Within the emerald grasslands lie wild creatures and monsters and even wilder men. The tribes of the four winds roam these lands and among them a young warrior about to come of age. Colark. The son of a chieftain and the brother of a fallen famous warrior seeks to make his own way in the savage Jade Plains. Follow the adventures of Colark as he battles his way through the wilderness of the Jade Plains.

A pile of skulls sits on dirt surrounded by a tall green grass. Protruding from the pile of skulls is the hilt and part of the blade an ornate sword. Above the green grass is a blood red sun (maybe with some wispy clouds) on a red horizon. I am still updating the name of the book. I am going to go with "Chronicles of Colark" or "Warriors of the Jade". I would focus the first drafts of this on the image and less on the name. I also like to have my author name at the bottom of the image and the title at the top.
What to avoid
I would like original art work and very limited usage of stock images. If stock images are used, it has to be creatively integrated.
