Too good not to post everywhere

It is with great pleasure I take this moment to reveal to you the current object of my admiration. If I could play an antiphonal fanfare for double brass quintet as an introductory piece of music, I would.

Anyway, I have been waiting for weeks now to reveal to you the absolutely phenomenal cover art that will grace the front (and back) of my print version, volume I, of The Windrider Saga. So without further ado...


I want to thank the staggeringly talented Christina Hess for her inspired painting, and the always accommodating and gifted Jon Mills for his classic text layout. I am richly blessed to work with such gracious and artistic people.

And because you dropped by, I will also include an image of the full cover that will wrap the book. After all, the way Christina designed it to continue Majestrin's wing onto the back cover is way too cool to skip.

So keep an eye out! February 29th, the print compilation goes live. It will be available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble, so any of you who have been waiting for paper pages to turn, now is your chance. As always, I am deeply grateful to each one of you for your support.

    1. All of the above. And it would only be a fraction of what it is without your family's contributions, between layout and story critiques. You guys are gems.
