The Final Countdown…

No, not that song by Europe. I’m referring to the new covers for my Tormay trilogy. If all goes well (ie., no devastation of Earth by giant asteroid, collapse of civilization due to too much reality TV and/or dollar failure, invasion by warlike, space-faring race bent on harvesting our natural resources, etc), then the covers should be live in about two weeks. In the meantime, here’s a look at the illustration for cover #2: The Shadow at the Gate. I’m very pleased with how this one turned out. The artist, Alex, has a gift for visual tension. When we embarked on the quest for new covers, I considered going the George R. R. Martin approach (simple, iconic images), but then I chucked that idea. I want the illustrations to convey vibrant snapshots from the trilogy, and I think Alex has done that admirably. Just wait until you see the illustration for The Wicked Day!
