More news from the novel front -- the one being published, not the one I'm working on.
The publisher is actually allowing me (Swimming Kangroo Books are super-nice people to work with) to pick the artist and forwarded me links to four artist's galleries. Very exciting! This is at least close to the last step.
I picked out an artist named Jeff Ward who does some very nice work. I'm assuming the publisher will agree since they asked.
Woohoo! I will finally have cover art to post!
I'm going to post a longer portion of the first chapter as a sample so you can get a better idea of what Warrior's Duty is about.
