Here’s part of the emails I sent to David S., the creative director at Ambassador International. I also sent him some links to book covers I like- and think that the style would fit Magnus Kir’s attitude. I’d love to have your ideas as well or you could even post links to the covers of your favorite books (whether they fit my qulifications or not). I’ll keep you abreast of what ideas David sends my way…

I searched “middle grade fantasy” on amazon and here are the book covers that intrigued me and portrayed the attitude I liked.
I liked all of this series’ covers: http://www.amazon.com/Fellowship-Ring-Being-First-Rings/dp/0618574948/ref=sr_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1292945310&sr=1-5
I don’t know about the character in this one, but the background is awesome: http://www.amazon.com/Between-ebook/dp/B003TXSAIY/ref=sr_1_161?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1292945833&sr=1-161
What do you guys think? Agree or disagree?
