I just got the cover painting for Hard Magic. Alan Pollack is the same fellow that did the covers for both Monster Hunter novels. He’s an extremely talented artist. http://www.alanpollack.com/ He was going for a very ’30s big pulp vibe, and I believe that it came out great. I’m feeling so much better about this one now that I know the cover on Amazon was a rough draft stub that shouldn’t have ever gone out. This one feels kind of retro-swanky-cool. I’m really excited.
Strangely, all three of my novels feature covers of an attractive/dangerous women and a man with a gun… I don’t really know what that says about me as an author. Oh, hell, who am I kidding? 🙂
