Cover Art

Solaris has posted the cover for my book, along with a publication date in October. I'm... uh. Quite pleased! This is a good way to start a good week.

Heart of Veridon!

Also? My name is huge.

Tim - the finished art looks terrific. And very nice name placement on the jacket. You are HUGE.

Oh man, that works really damn well. Like I said, with Jon Foster, you're guaranteed a good cover.

You know you have a perfect author name, Tim. Just right for filling up half a book cover with TIM and most of the other half with AKERS.

I assume my parents planned it that way.

It is absolutely badass. Very beautiful. Better cover art than many books I bought just for the cover art.

I can see a whole demographic and even quite a few women buying that cover. Now a little viral marketing (Megatokyo?) and you are well set.

October? So the Hugo will have to wait till 2010...

Actually, I think your name is relatively small and tasteful on that cover.
