Hello everyone,

Research is a constant, ongoing process while writing historical fiction. Sometimes a fascinating tidbit surfaces that might be of particular interest beyond its use in a novel. As I continue to work in the historical fiction field, I will post those occasional points of interest here. Occasionally I muse on the writing process as well along with news to keep readers informed of what's going on with my books and other writings.

Please feel free to post comments--I'd love to hear from you.

Cover art for A Land Beyond Ravens

The cover art has been decided for my forthcoming book, A Land Beyond Ravens!

Three concepts were presented and after a little tweaking and several rounds of discussions with my editor, the one posted here became the winner. It was my first choice--when I first saw it, I was totally blown away. Many authors are never consulted about the cover art on their books and end up with unsuitable illustrations. I am one of the lucky ones, to be able to give input.

I think cover concept #3 is interesting. It depends on the focus of the book. Concept #1 overall has the best balance, though.
