She Wants to Show You the Cover

You may not be aware of this, but Sandy has two artists’ work featured on the cover of Choices Meant for Gods. Robert Gelinas, her publisher, designed the incredible front cover, combining elements to reflect the magic and danger that surround my bride, Amanda Chariss Derdriu. (Hold on a second; I’m going to see if Sandy will let me use Taiman for her last name. Drat. Well, isn’t that unsettling…)

The other artist is Megan Kissinger, whom visitors at The Dragon had the pleasure of meeting during the week of March 26-30. The interview with Megan is in the archives there. Megan is the cartographer for Choices Meant for Gods. She designed the map of Onweald, and you can see the four-color (is that correct?)…you can see the four-color, or full-color, version of the map ghosted behind a few testimonials for the book on the back cover. (Again, don’t ask me what these printing terms mean. I’m trusting the gal with the career in this stuff here.) Then there’s a black-and-white version printed inside the book, but Sandy’s disappointed in the print quality of that one. She says they’ll have a better file plated for the second press run (by the gods, stop with all that jargon). She’s giggling over my shoulder as I type all this nonsense.

Suffice it to say, here’s the cover for ya’ll to look at. (How’s that, you little sprite?)
