Cover Reveal for The Lays of Anuskaya
So here’s some exciting news. I have new covers!
As part of the gear-up for the release of my third book, The Flames of Shadam Khoreh, I’m also re-releasing The Winds of Khalakovo and The Straits of Galahesh. I have to admit some disappointment that the previous versions didn’t have a unifying theme. So I designed these around that basic premise, that they would look and feel like a series. I hope I’ve hit the mark.
I’m really proud of these covers. I’m glad that I could put my own spin on them. The artwork for Adam Paquette’s wonderful piece for The Winds of Khalakovo somehow turned out much darker than the original. Which was too bad, because there were so many beautiful color choices that became muted in doing so.
Likewise, Todd Lockwood’s great artwork for The Straits of Galahesh was a bit too segmented in the prior version. I really love the sense of vertigo you get from the picture, and to get it you really need to see more of the piece.
I’m immensely excited. I can’t wait to start getting these newly branded covers out to readers. More news on that in the coming days.
In the meantime, I’m going to glow in these wonderful pieces created by three great artists.
