There Exists Another Book In The World

It arrived yesterday, much to my surprise. It was well-timed in a way, since I was feeling cranky and overwhelmed as I dig into my Spartacus novel. I say "in a way" because I was cranky and overwhelmed enough that I barely paused to be happy about seeing the finished version of another of my books. What an ingrate, I am!

A day later, though, and things are going better. I made what I hope is a significant breakthrough with my approach to Spartacus, and that reminded me to pick up The Sacred Band and admire it's beauty.

Maya did the same...
And then she read a bit...
So far so good...
At least, I think so...
And then... oh...
Want to know what's so troubling? Just a month more, and then anyone that wishes can discover the dreadful truth...

If anything, the cover is beautifully designed! That spine looks like it deserves to sit on a shelf for a hundred years. Can't wait for October!

Yeah, it is some terrific cover design. It may be the best of the three - when you're holding it in your hand.

The cover looks great but I can't wait for the map inside!

Ah, yes, the map has expanded a little bit. To me it feels like the globe of this world is turning, revealing new things...

I really love the idea of the map expanding. Maps in fantasy novels are such a special thing and you've made them even more fascinating. Is this an original idea?

I'm not sure if it's an original idea in general, but it was an original idea for me. It just made sense considering the plot aspects of the book.

And it does make me curious as what other stuff is out there, around on the other side of that globe...
