Phantom’s Mask: Cover Sneak Peek

Author Sara A. Noë holding copies of A Fallen Hero published by IngramSpark and Barnes & Noble Press


As an indie author, I have complete control over my book covers. Although many self-published authors commission freelance artists to design and execute their covers, I created A Fallen Hero‘s cover myself, and now Phantom’s Mask is underway for its target 2020 release date. This cover has been particularly fun to make thanks to a real-life element that has connected me to Cato even more than before!

Check out this short video for a sneak peek at the process, and stay tuned for the official cover release in the new few months!

I'm an award-winning fantasy author, artist, and photographer from La Porte, Indiana. My poetry, short fiction, and memoir works have been featured in various anthologies and journals since 2005, and several of my poems are available in the Indiana Poetry Archives. The first three novels in my Chronicles of Avilésor: War of the Realms series have received awards from Literary Titan.

After some time working as a freelance writer, I was shocked by how many website articles are actually written by paid "ghost writers" but published under the byline of a different author. It was a jolt seeing my articles presented as if they were written by a high-profile CEO or an industry expert with decades of experience. I'll be honest; it felt slimy and dishonest. I had none of the credentials readers assumed the author of the article actually had. Ghost writing is a perfectly legal, astonishingly common practice, and now, AI has entered the playing field to further muddy the waters. It's hard to trust who (or what) actually wrote the content you'll read online these days.

That's not the case here at On The Cobblestone Road. I do not and never will pay a ghost writer, then slap my name on their work as if I'd written it. This website is 100% authentic. No outsourcing. No ghost writing. No AI-generated content. It's just me... as it should be.
