Sneak Peek Teaser for Great Fantasy Cover Art

I am excited to announce I’ve been working with artist Patrick Arrasmith for the cover of my novel, The Conjurers.

Great fantasy cover art can make all the difference for a novel’s success and I am thrilled to be working with Patrick for mine. He has created covers for such notable publishing houses as Random House, Tor, Nightshade Books, Macmillan, Scholastic and Viking Press.

A Great Fantasy Cover Artist

Patrick works in a medium called scratchboard that gives his images a unique, fantastical and otherworldly feel. I was specifically drawn in by a dark, mysterious cover he did for J.D. Horn’s horror novel, “The Void.”

I’m looking at a release date around the beginning of May for the novel, with preorders available well before that. In the next couple weeks, I’ll give you insiders a sneak peak at its spectacular Arrasmith cover. Until then, let me tantalize you with a few images from Patrick’s portfolio. These provide just a hint of what he can do.

Arrasmith produces great fantasy cover art and much, much more

Dragons Around the World

Doing some recent research on dragons in heraldry for the second book in the Conjurers series, I came across Y Ddraig Goch, the red dragon from the flag of Wales. As other historical researchers will tell you, one siren-like link on the internet leads to the next until you are sucked down into endless wormholes (so to speak). […]
