Jade Gets a Cover

Oh man. Have I mentioned how much I love getting artwork done for my books? A few weeks ago I managed to finagle some more time on Nick Deligaris’ calendar, and after a few emails back and forth, this was the result.

Hi, I'm Jade. Have you met my buddy Hal?

Seriously. I gave him words, and he gave me THAT! Click the picture and bask in the details. I’ve been staring at it for more than an hour, and I’m still noticing little touches. (I mean, the scar actually goes BEHIND some of his scales!) One or two more additions, basically just the title and author credit, and this masterpiece will be ready to adorn my lowly short story, Jade. That won’t be for a month or two, though. I will wait until all of my covers are complete before I do any updates. Until then, my thanks as always to Nick, for his fabulous work. What do you folks think?


    1. I’ll be sure to let you know. It might be a bit, though. I’m going to do a batch of updates at the same time, so I plan on waiting until all of the art is done before any of it goes live.

  1. Just ran across the new artwork for “Jade” on Amazon, came over here to see what’s new. Love the artwork, it’s my favorite of the series so far.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, Nick did a remarkable job, as always. His dragon artwork is one of the things that convinced me I wanted him to do my covers, so I was happy to finally get him to draw one of my dragons. Now to see if I can finagle a picture of Myn…

  2. That would be great to see.

    Also, if you do ever end up selling things online, remember that I’m the first person who reviewed all 4 of the Deacon books so far (on Amazon), so maybe I could get a coupon or something 😉

    Hmmm, you might also give me a heads up when you release the Lain book – I don’t want to ruin my streak!

      1. Sounds fair to me! I’ll keep you apprised of the book’s progress on the site, and I’ll certainly let you know if any other goodies are on the way, and what sort of an “original fan” bonus I might be able to send your way.
