For some reason, I've been having extraordinarily good luck with covers lately. Just take a gander at what Tor commissioned for the upcoming reissue of Stations of the Tide. Moody, evocative, romantic, and -- not that this matters half so much to readers as it does to authors -- accurately based on a scene in the novel.
So I am grateful to Tor's director Irene Gallo for commissioning it, and to cover designer Jamie Stafford-Hill for putting it all together. But most especially to the artist, Thom Tenery, for the kind of creation that makes you pick up a book and read the first page, hoping against hope that it will be as good as the cover promises.
You can check out Tenery's website here. Terrific stuff. You'll forgive me, I hope, for thinking I got the best of the lot.
