Serpent Cult - New Cover
The cover to Ruins on Stone Hill, the first book in the Heroes of Ravenford series, depicts the tall warrior, Lloyd and the elven wizard, Glolindir, two of the four original companions. This new cover depicts the other two of those companions - the irrepressible halfling "assassin", Seth and everyone's favorite gnome cleric, Aksel. The little cleric sits astride the huge shoulders of the Boulder, the large stone golem the Heroes "found" in the ruins atop Stone Hill. Seth and Aksel are like night and day, Seth's cynical view of the world in direct contrast to Aksel's desire to help anyone in need, even his fallen enemies. Yet, despite this drastic difference in ideologies, the duo form a fast friendship, balancing each other out nicely.
Once again, I am amazed by Jackson's work - he brings the pair to life in a way that far surpassed my expectations. I am truly blessed to work with such talented people. Anyway, there you have it. Look for some excerpts from book two in the next month, and then a cover reveal for book 3 around Thanksgiving. Plans are still in place to publish all three books by late November/early December. Then of course, there is book 4 in the series, Princess of Lanfor, which by the way, is already sitting at 100+ pages.
