Another Killer Cover -- Hearts & Swords

Just got this. And, no, I'm not done with Noble Heart yet, nor Heart & Sword...and, no, there will probably not be a scene like this in one of the stories. But the atmosphere fits....

I'm very pleased.

Comments welcome.

I agree. The cover has a great feel to it! I can see the clouds in the background going well with the mutinous atmosphere on the ships.

I love this one! The colors and the content are very appealing.
It will look marvelous as I carry it around (and on my bookshelf)

Far better than Heart Journey, at least.

I would love to know why they changed the style from the one introduced in Heart Dance (continued up to Heart Change), with the men's outfits being drawn and not manipulated photos. I think it worked much better to highlight the designs and make readers imagine the heroes (guided by your description) any way they wanted to.

It's perfect, Robin. I'm pleased, too.

Everything you do is "work." Every breath you take, every gaze through a window, every drive down a mountain pass, every trip to my house for critique group meeting. :) It's all fodder for a character, a scene, or a plot. Life is work. That's what fiction is all about.

Dream on, my friend. Love the new cover.

Finally getting around to commenting. Wow, it's been a while.

Yes, I love this cover. Hearts And Swords should be published in December 2011.

As for the change in the covers, I was told by a bookseller that every 5-6 books in a series, the covers should change to keep it more fresh.
