Hero's Guide II

Here's the nearly completed cover to the second book in the series. This is a photograph of the actual book - an advanced reader copy. I'm still working on the interiors and there are still a few tweaks to make to the front cover, but this is more or less what it will look like.

That was a lot of characters to fit into one little area and there are just as many on the back cover. The composition was tricky, but there was one thing about it that I loved. When my awesome art director at HarperCollins gave me the description for the cover, she referenced the Paul McCartney album cover, Band on the Run. I pretty much had the Band on the Run song stuck in my head for all the months I worked on this, which made me happy because it's a great song. :)

The book will be out in May.

Rapunzel's Tower

This is the tower Rapunzel lived in until she was rescued.  By herself......
