Friday’s Findings

Two days ago, I engaged in a Skype call with an illustrator who specializes in book covers for science fiction and fantasy novels. While we were on the call, he produced a rough sketch of what will become the cover of my current WIP novel, Oblivion’s Hope. Yesterday, he sent me the first draft. I’m so amazed at his skill. This draft, while miles more detailed than the rough draft, had the characters and the spaceship of my novel almost a perfect match of how I had imagined them. This first draft is somewhat of an Impressionist’s painting–he will produce a more complete illustration later. I can’t wait to show it to you.

In the meantime, I found this article about book covers. It’s the first in today’s list for Friday’s Findings.
