The cover of the third book in The Seven Wars series, available January 7th, 2013.
This is one of my most favorite illustrations. Oddly enough, I never created this image to be a cover, or even to go with a particular story. As it happens, I painted this image during the final days of my grandfather’s life about a year and a half ago as a distraction from the pain that was hanging over my family at the time. When I started preparing Through Death Or Through Darkness for printing, I was at a loss as to what to use for the cover. I actually painted a whole other image thinking it would serve as the cover, but once I got all the text in place, I just didn’t like it. That’s when I started scrolling through my file of artwork and this image just called to me. I imagine many of you have seen it before, but I hope you’ll enjoy it as a cover much as I do.
