Draft Cover for Darklaw: In the Shadows of Gods

As summer approaches, I’m gearing up for a new German volume training routine with my personal training clients. I’m also finishing up the cover for Darklaw: In the Shadows of Gods. This story is available in a collection on Amazon, but I’ll be releasing a stand-alone and extended version on Kindle.

Shadows is a transition from the end of the novel Darklaw to the beginning of Darklord, which will be serialized here on the Darklaw Saga website.

Below, I’ve posted a few images showing my progress from pencil to cover.

Avestine, Kami, and Rook have moved on from the blistering heat of the Trade Quarter to the gloomy winter of the Ice Quarter. That means parkas and feathers. Don’t let Kami’s nudity here concern you; I’ll have to do something creative to hide her breasts from the cover when it goes on Amazon. I know how uptight they are.
