Shadow in the Sea

Readers will return to Windwaithe Island once again. When sixteen-year-old Sadelyn Hanson washes up on the shores of Windwaithe Island, her beauty and the strange marks on her wrist make superstitious locals suspect she is a mermaid. Feigning amnesia, Sade hides a far worse secret: she was sailing to her own murder trial when she was thrown overboard by the real killer, the cunning and cruel Captain Westwood.

Sade's quiet effort to rebuild her life on the island is threatened when she meets an actual young merman. Unable to speak his language, Sade still longs for the warm companionship he offers, despite the locals' dire legends about merfolk and their dark magic. But her confused feelings for the impossible boy become the least of her problems when Captain Westwood's ship docks at Windwaithe. With nowhere to escape, Sade must trust in the one person who doesn't fear the merfolk. A woman who had dealings with them herself—years ago

Cover Art!!!!

My publisher has finally decided on a cover artist! I’m really excited about their choice. It was the one I was hoping for. His name is Tom Bagshaw. Click on the links below if you want to see some examples of his work.

I think he will do a fantastic job of bringing my mermaid to life. I can’t wait to see the finial art! I turned in the revisions my editor asked for today. It will be a few weeks before I hear back from her--but I hope we are getting close to being finished soon. I’ll keep you all posted.

P.S. I’d love to hear everyone’s opinions of Tom Bagshaw's work in the comments—even if you hate him. : )

After looking at those links, especially the forest dreaming one, I think he's great for the job! It'll really catch attention. How exciting :)

haha! I love how you're like, hey if you want to see the cover, click on my book blog....teaser.
I like his stuff....but there's a computerish look to them that drives me nuts. I like it when people look completely real. I think he'll do a good job, but just throwing in my beef. :)

I like them.

I agree on the computer-generated thing... it's a little iffy for me. But I really like the forest dreaming picture; that one's really pretty.

His art seems really cool to me. I'm excited to see what he puts together for your book! WAY cool!

His work looks awesome! But you already know that because I told you the other day. I'm seriously considering buying some of his work because it's just so cool!
