…and here is the brand-new cover for The Wicked Day. This comes from a rather dark point in the story. I don’t remember the precise details of when I wrote that portion of the book, but I think it was during my dying year. Lots of hours considering the reality of death, the abruptness and imminence of that final minute. Someone once remarked online that they found my trilogy became more and more not serious, the further they read through it. I’ve always found that one a puzzler. If you strip away the fantastic elements in The Wicked Day, it is largely about death and dying, whether in reality or spiritually, the repercussions and redemption and the hope that yet remains in even such a dark valley. The illustration for this cover is the confrontation between…drat. I just realized I can’t identify any of the characters in the picture. Even the names would be major spoilers.
Good night for now. I am so very pleased with this cover!
