Cover Reveal: LAND OF GODS

Book 1 - Falls of RedemptionAt long last, I’m happy to reveal my cover for LAND OF GODS! If you’re confused because this book was already published, here’s the deal – iterate and optimize, as the SPP guys say (Sean Platt et al). That was a place holder cover, as is the cover for book 2, RETRIBUTION CALLS.

Check it out and let me know what you think! Have ideas for book 2? Let me know – the artist is at work! (more…)
