New cover for “Dart” is on the way.

For several reasons – all beyond anyone’s control (including mine) – the new cover for DART is still in the pipeline. But the good news is that I can offer a sneak preview right here, right now!

Here are three ‘roughs’ provided by the artist (whose name I will reveal when the final cover is ready to go!):

Roughs for new DART cover.

And here is the selected image with more work done, ready for tweaks and colour to bring it closer to the final cover:

Second stage.

I hope you like the way this is progressing as much as I do! For those of you who have already read DART, one of the interesting ‘tweaks’ still to come will be the introduction of pillars (yes – two of them!) as side borders for the image! If you have any thoughts on how to get the cover ‘just right‘ – feel free to leave a comment.

Keep a look out for further updates on the new cover. Also, once the cover is complete and DART is reissued in its new livery, you’ll find details on here of a reader competition which could result in you (wherever you reside) receiving a signed paperback copy, complete with new cover and a dedication of your choice!

A DART question:

When Lisa tells Dart that the Sylth think Descartes got it wrong – what does she mean? (Leave your answer in comments – no prize, just the kudos.)

That’s all for this post. As Dart would say: “Watch out for assholes!”

    Whoa! These covers are awesome! Although I think a smirk would look better on Dart ( maybe turn up the corners of his lips a little?)
    As for the question: My memory really, really sucks!! I’m trying hard to figure out who Descartes was. Was he the former Slyth leader? Or the leader of the first settlers? And the Slyth did not agree with him so the formed a different community… This is as much I could guess from my not-so-good memory. Maybe I could use a reread!
    Also looking forward for that readers competition. I’d love to get a signed copy from. Keep writing awesome stories!

      Thanks for your input (again!) Tanushri. Good suggestion on the smirk – very much ‘Dart’!

    I agree with Grace ^ a smirk on his face would look awesome. I would also like to see the eyebrows on the woman in the background softened a bit. Maybe remove the hard arch on the left brow. I think it would change her expression to a more clear presence.

      Great feedback, Miss Becka! Love the idea on the eyebrows – I suspect you have artistic talent!
