We are getting closer and closer to launch day, March 2nd. As a result, the latest cover is almost fully revealed! Today, we take one step closer to showing it off completely.
One of the joys I’ve had in creating my covers is choosing the animals for the cover. The wolf on the first cover (see below) was suggested by my cover artist, but I asked for a number of changes to make her look more menacing.
The raven on the second cover turned out better than I imagined. I intended for it to basically be a simple silhouette. The cover artist, however, went way above and beyond and gave me an incredible image! I still can’t get over how good the second book in my series looks:
For the third book, I knew right away what I wanted on the cover. Finding the right image, though, was tough. I send my new cover artist several I thought would work but she didn’t like any of them. I don’t blame her. The ones I picked out were kind of cliche. Instead, she came up with a great image, and I proudly present that to you here:
Yes, a bull will grace the cover of The Huntsman and the Heretic. The cover creatures on the first two books were introduced very quickly in my previous entries. The werewolf appears in Chapter 1 of The Huntsman and the She-Wolf and the raven appears in Chapter 3 of The Huntsman and the Vampire. Readers of my third book will have to be more patient. The figure that the bull represents, however, will not appear until midway through my latest entry.
My plan is to reveal the back cover this Friday and the front cover next Tuesday. After that, I will be showing off the interior as we approach launch day. I hope to see you back here for that!
In the mean time, take care of each other.
