I am so stoked to be unveiling the cover for Mercury & Murder, book 2 in the Beowulf Chronicles series.
What do you think??
Once again, I had the fabulous Abel Valdivia create my cover and he did a bang up job. This time, though, instead of going to him with an idea mostly worked out and then dragging him through endless back and forth to create the picture I had in my head, I let him do his magic. I simply told him what the book was about and a few of the ideas and images that were central to it and said, “show me what you think it ought to be.” The final version is a very minorly tweaked version of what he produced.
I couldn’t be happier, both with the result and with the ease with which he created a great cover for the book. There is something so damned exciting about seeing the cover — helps to make it real. Now I just have to finish the book!!
