Okay, the title of this entry is hyperbole, but still, I've had a severe disappointment. It seems that the artist I hired to do the landscape illustrations for Book 1 of my Hunter's Rose series will not be available for Book 2.
I really feel bad about that. Continuity is important to me, and I loved his artwork so much. He instantly understood precisely the atmosphere I wanted from the illustrations on the first try. I never once asked him for a revision.
I'll go into more detail when we get closer to launch for Book 2. Right now, I'm just looking for a replacement.
On the bright side, the woman who did the rose illustrations for Book 1 is available for Book 2! I have some really cool designs for the sequel, and I look forward to sharing them with you in the future.
Anyway. Take care of yourselves out there :)
