Saga of the Sinner

I am beyond thrilled to be able to present to you the cover for my National Novel Writing Month project, Saga of the Sinner.

Saga of the Sinner, by Cadence

This amazingly awesome cover was designed by Phoenix Johnson (of Phoenix Johnson Graphic Design — who also designed the cover for my 2016 NaNo project, Eleanor).

A little about Saga of the Sinner:

As you know, I have been writing a novel about the Marquis de Sade. He was a very naughty boy, and he wrote a lot of naughty books, but there is a lot of myth and legend attached to him (and his name, especially). I’m hoping to be able to portray Sade as who I think he really was.

I have been studying a number of primary and secondary texts, including some of his letters from prison, but as you know, I studied Sade at university, so I’m planning to apply a lot of that research and work to this novel. I really do want to try and weave in some of my outlandish theories too 😉

I’d love to be able to call it a work of creative nonfiction, but I’m not sure that I can, ethically. I have filled in a lot of blanks and worked in my own interpretations of events, especially where concerning the ‘he said, she said’ accounts.

Anyway, thank you all for joining me today for the big reveal for Saga of the Sinner. I hope you love the cover as much as I do, and please feel free to let Phoenix and I know what you think
