Second Cover - Champion of the Rose

The first of the fantasy covers is one which makes me very happy (and is currently my desktop background).  It's a fantastic image both close up and as a thumbnail - the colours really draw the eye and I adore the golden glimpse of city in the background.  The artist is Julie Dillon, who has a marvellous style, and a really special ability to tell a story with the image.

I think I've done a half-decent job finding the right fonts and shades to go with it, and probably won't mess too much more with this.  Champion and Silence will be the first two released and this will soon be a solid, real book which I can read without recourse to electronic devices.

A most excellent prospect.
