Today I’m excited to take part in the cover reveal for the audiobook edition of Harpyness is Only Skin Deep by D.H. Willison! Thank you to The Write Reads for asking me to join in on this cover reveal.
I posted a spotlight of this book earlier this year when it was on tour with The Write Reads. This book sounds a lot of fun and I’m excited to share the cover of the audiobook with you today!
Are you ready?
Here it is!
This cover was designed by Papaya Style. Here’s a link to their Instagram and here’s a link to their Artstation. I think this cover is a lot of fun and I’m hoping to fit this book into my TBR sometime soon.
The audiobook edition of this book was released today, September 22, 2023 at 40 global retailers including Spotify, Kobo, Libro.fm, and Apple.
Unassuming human Darin yearns with every fiber of his being to be that grand hero from countless books and games. When given the chance for a one-way trip to the fantastical world of Arvia, he quickly realizes he’s terrible at it. Yet the qualities he’s always undervalued—quick-wittedness and empathy—save his life when he encounters the ferocious harpy Rinloh.
Harpyness is Only Skin Deep is about friendships that defy all odds, laughing at the absurdities of life, and seeing the good in the worst monster in the realm.
D.H. Willison is a reader, writer, game enthusiast and developer, engineer, and history buff. He’s lived or worked in over a dozen countries, learning different cultures, viewpoints, and attitudes, which have influenced his writing, contributing to one of his major themes: alternate and creative conflict resolution. The same situations can be viewed by different cultures quite differently. Sometimes it leads to conflict, sometimes to hilarity. Both make for a great story.
He’s also never missed a chance to visit historic sites, from castle dungeons, to catacombs, to the holds of tall ships, to the tunnels of the Maginot Line. It might be considered research, except for the minor fact that his tales are all set on the whimsical and terrifying world of Arvia. Where giant mythic monsters are often more easily overcome with empathy than explosions.
