i write. i make up stuff. i adventure hard, so you don’t have to.
As I worked on the outline and draft for the third novel in the Terra Incognita trilogy, The Key to Creation, I sent the summary and suggested some ideas to the cover artist, Lee Gibbons. Lee created amazing cover paintings for The Edge of the World and The Map of All Things, and also provided the cover images for the two Roswell Six companion CDs, Beyond the Horizon and A Line in the Sand. It’s no surprise that he’s done it again for The Key to Creation.
I saw the sketches of his work in progress, but the final painting is truly breathtaking, capturing the epic feel of the trilogy.
The Key to Creation will be released from Orbit Books in June 2011.
