Final Version of the Near + Far Covers, plus a Sneak Peek at the Promo Items

Yay! Yesterday the publisher dropped by to bring me the proof version of Near + Far. It is GORGEOUS. Absolutely GORGEOUS, managing to look modern but still have a touch of that retro, Ace Double feel.

So here’s NEAR, with fabulous art by Sean Counley:

The Near side of Near + Far. That's fabulous art by Sean Counley, pulled from "The Mermaids Singing Each to Each". Cover design is by Tod McCoy.

And FAR, cover art by the same artist.

And here's the Far side, by the same artist, referencing the story "Amid the Words of War."

One of the things I’ve been doing in preparation for the launch party at WorldCon is making jewelry using the interior art by Mark Tripp. Here’s a little sample of that. If you’ve attending WorldCon and attend the party, you’ve got a decent chance of receiving one, but no matter what, stop by and you will get something. šŸ˜‰

Jewelry in the process of being made

We've tried a couple of different approaches to this, using both the black and white images as well as versions printed on colored paper.
