Fan-Made Cover For 'The Doors Of Stone' By Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicle Book #3)

Patrick Rothfuss was an instant favorite of mine when I finished reading The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear in one sweep. I preferred reading series in one go, because of my memory condition that triggers me to forget anything in a story after a few months... I like rereading but I prefer reading them all as one before I forget any vital detail and get lost in the succeeding story telling.

The Name of the Wind was released in 2007 and four years later (2011) The Wise Man's Fear followed. And now for the conclusion of The Kingkiller Chronicle, The Doors of Stone, it's been already 4 years and counting and the book isn't out yet. But I am not complaining, who am I to bark or bitch around...? It's a good thing The Slow Regard of Silent Things has temporarily satiated my hunger for the series...

There is one thing I can personally do to make me forget about the upcoming book and that is to create a fan-made cover for it. How paradoxical or ironic... When I am busy crafting I forget whatever is occupying my mind.

Check out the fan-made cover (US edition) I made for The Doors of Stone by Patrick Rothfuss.

There is no official synopsis for the The Doors of Stone yet, but we will know that it will be the third day of Kvothe sharing the story to Chronicler. We will know how he came to be an innkeeper in Newarre after the events of the second book. A lot of loose ends to be clarified and many other arcs of stories to be completed. That seems to be a lot to cover in a single book and some are worried that the last book may be spit into parts, therefore extending the series (ala Tad Williams, or George R. R. Martin.)

According to Amazon UK, which is known for posting unreliable release dates for upcoming books, The Doors of Stone by Patrick Rothfuss is set to be released on August 17, 2017.

Disney Pixar's 'Finding Dory' Gets An Official Trailer, Familiar Sounding Teaser Poster And Official Synopsis

If we look back into the past and focus on the movie Finding Nemo, we will notice that Dory is the most remembered character there was, even more remembered than the father-and-son main characters, Marlin and the titular Nemo.

She was fun and her memory problem is a laughing stock for all viewers... that if you examine closely is actually a tragic fate. But it did save them from a lot of scrapes and dangers that we shrug it off since it is helpful. And because of that we will see a spin-off, focusing more about this memory-deprived character.

Finding Dory, which landed with a new teaser poster, features the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Hayden Rolence, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Ty Burrell, Kaitlin Olson, Ed O'Neill, Willem Dafoe, Vicki Lewis, Idris Elba, and Dominic West. The movie is directed by Andrew Stanton.

Oscar®-winning director Andrew Stanton, co-director Angus MacLane and producer Lindsey Collins offered new details of the all-new story, which reunites Dory with friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak Whale?

Finding Dory flounders around the cinemas on June 17, 2016.

Cover Reveal: The Crown By Kiera Cass (Fifth And Final Book In The Selection Series)

The Selection series by Kiera Cass is coming to a close in its fifth installment titled The Crown. Will all loose ends be answered and given light on its release next year? Will this be a satisfying conclusion or will readers be left with a hanging climax that opens for a future spinoff? Who knows...

But this time instead of Royal Ladies for candidates, we have Royal Princes and bachelors to take their turn. Sounds like a gender reversal we came to know in Life and Death by Stephenie Meyer.
