Thank you to all who voted on my new cover! The response was really fantastic – the best I’ve had so far from you guys here and also on my mailing list, so thanks, I really appreciate your help with this. I honestly expected there to be a clear winner but in the end it […]
As ever, my cover designers came up with something striking and I hope you all like it. For once I didn’t do a crappy sketch, I just told them what I wanted and this is the final result. There’s some symbolism here and anyone that knows the Robin Hood legend will know how it ends […]
