Cover for The Farthest Shore
I think of this one as the Kraken cover, because you can see the beastie hiding behind my name. :)
In The Farthest Shore, sequel to The Deepest Ocean, Captain Alyster Juell's first mission is to compete in an ocean-crossing race. There's a hefty prize for the winner, which will be him, of course - he commands a steamship whereas all his other competitors have older models, sailing vessels.
But after they've left harbor, he finds a stowaway called Miri (that's her on the cover) and learns that pirates are out to seize his ship for its new technology. And they have a kraken on their side. The race is on — not just for the prize, but to stay ahead of the kraken.
Kanaxa designed the lovely cover and The Farthest Shore will be released by Samhain Publishing in August. I'm thrilled to show this off - getting a "Cover Art" email from my editor is always like opening a present - and it captures the tense, dark atmosphere perfectly.
