Design update! The series name of my epic fantasy tetralogy has changed from “Seed of Glory Sown in Sorrow” to something much simpler and more concrete: “The Heir and the Herald.”
Don’t worry: no one forced this change on me. I actually came up with this new series title myself, and I like it. It’s punchy, visualizable, and representative of the series as a whole. And it works much better on the book covers (yes, the covers are currently being designed, and yes, they’re awesome, and yes, “Seed of Glory Sown in Sorrow: A Sea Sought in Song” was too much of a mouthful even for me).
As a phrase, seed of glory sown in sorrow is still near and dear to my heart, and it’s still the first line of text you’ll see upon cracking open Book One.
Which is an event you’ll get to experience very, very soon.
