Diamonds and Dust by River Fairchild / Cover Reveal

Do you know what today is? Today is the OFFICIAL LAUNCH of River Fairchild's book, Diamonds and Dust. 

Title: Diamonds and Dust
Author: River Fairchild
Series: Jewels of Chandra (Book 1)
Genre: Science Fiction and Fantasy
Publication Date: 12/8/2013


Magic is real. So is betrayal.

Two heirs. A Kingdom of dust on a troubled world. One might resurrect it. One might destroy it all.

Archaeologist David Alexander investigates the cave where his father disappeared and hurtles into another world, one filled with magic and bizarre creatures. The mad ravings in his father's journals of icemen and dragons may not be fantasies after all.

Convinced his father may still be alive, David begins a treacherous journey to find him and discover a way home. Along the way, he encounters a few unlikely friends. A Dreean warrior, a beautiful thief and a satyr join him as he searches.

David's arrival into this new world sets off an explosive chain reaction of events. Faced with powerful adversaries and few clues, he may not get the chance to rescue his father before disaster strikes, condemning both of them to death. Or worse.



River Fairchild is somewhat odd, brandishes a dry sense of humor, owned by several cats. Lives in a fantasy world. A fabricator of magic. Makes stuff up and spins tales about it. Believes in Faerie crossings and never staying in one place for very long. Speculative Fiction wordsmith. The secret to her stories? Spread lies, blend in truths, add a pinch of snark and a dash of tears. Escape into her world. She left the porch light on so you can find your way down the rabbit hole.


I am thrilled to host River on her big day. :)

    1. You're so very welcome, River! I am glad to help. :)

  2. Great cover. I love the colors. Best of luck to River.

  3. Wow, this is one of the better covers I have seen! I love it. I also love the photo representing River Fairchild. While I was running this morning, I was thinking about two main characters in a new story idea I thought up and this photo resembles one of them...quite odd! Thanks for sharing, Chrys, and best of luck to River=)

    1. That is great to hear! I think it is quite magnificent too. What a coincidence that the picture representing River matches a new character you invented this morning. Fate can be funny. ;)

  4. Awesome cover, and great Blurb!
    Congrats River!
