Big news this month, as we're pushing ahead to get my second novel, Silencing Orpheus, out before end of year (more details on that coming soon).
However, we've agreed on a front cover design--and as usual, Sven Davisson at Rebel Satori has knocked it out of the park. I'm bowled over by how much I like it.
And now I can share it with all of you!
When I submitted the book, I also sent along an image of a painting that had been a kind of visual inspiration for me while I was writing. It was an 1894 painting entitled "Orpheus" by Hungarian painter, Károly Ferenczy (1862-1917). Here it is:
Really beautiful (not to mention dead sexy), right? Absolutely.
I include it, here, because I not only love the painting, but because it'll explain something that's going to come up once the novel is out: the violin. Nowhere in my novel does Orpheus play a violin, and yet it appears on the cover. That violin, like Zeus' pointing/gun fingers, represents something else.
So, what is the cover to Silencing Orpheus?
Here it is:
I couldn't be happier with it. I hope you like it too.
More news as it comes in!
