Revealing Interior Art & Congratulating Donato

Revealing Interior Art & Congratulating Donato

Some wonderful art-related news to share today!

We are deep into designing and wrapping up Lord Foul's Bane by Stephen R. Donaldson and The Red Queen's War by Mark Lawrence. Since we will be getting these projects going at the printer in June for a delivery in late summer, I thought I'd share two interior pieces of art from each of them!

Here they are:

Covenant & Berek by Allen Morris

Jalan by Jason Chan


They are pretty epic, eh? I almost made the Thomas Covenant piece the book's cover. That's how much I love it. And Jason Chan always delivers amazing Mark Lawrence artwork. It's a given. What do you think?

And lastly on the news front, a huge congratulations to Donato Giancola! He has painted the artwork for Uprooted by Naomi Novik and Elegy for Darkness by Jacqueline Carey. But his work in 2018 on the ebook cover of Warrior by Terry Brooks has garnered him a Chesley Award Finalist nomination!

It is a beautiful piece of art, one I will own one day. That day can't come soon enough! Well done, Donato! Let's hope you win like our Marc Simonetti did last year for The Sword of Shannara! Winners will be announced at SpikeCon this year in early July!

Hope you are reading something great! I have to get back to my proofing on Lord Foul's Bane. Such a great novel. Can't wait for you to see what we are going to do with it!

Happy Friday!
