Fourth Cover - The Silence of Medair
Medair is an odd protagonist for a fantasy novel - her story starts after the success/failure of an epic quest, and she spends all her time not wanting to think about things, not wanting to do anything, wanting to run away and hide from herself, with her failure constantly going around in circles in her head. She is trapped.
I changed the fonts I used from the original design for this cover - they were a bit too thin and spindly to stand up in thumbnail. I rather like the effect I've managed here, with a suggestion of smoke above embers. There's a lot of fire in this novel, eating away at the scenery. :D
