Thank you, Valerie. Welcome Soot. Hello, Creekmud.
Sunday, January 3, 2021
With the completion of Book II: The Storm, cover artist Valerie Gershman will end her involvement with the Long Division project. She has been a joy to work with and produced some beautiful images for this series. It is very sad for me to see her go. Valerie, thank you so much and I wish you all the best.
Soot Ashby will be rejoining Long Division as cover artist for Book III: Hamilton & John. Soot was my original choice to illustrate books 1 and 2, but circumstances prompted her withdrawal from the project at that time. It’s wonderful to have her back in this new role. The new book should be headed to the printer in early 2021. Soot will also be drawing the covers for books 5 and 6 to be published later this year.
Creekmud will be stepping in to provide the cover art for the the fourth volume, The Worlds of Long Division. I think his style is well-suited to fit my vision for the WoLD cover. This book is different from the rest in that it is a companion guide rather than a novel of its own. So a different look for the cover will help distinguish it from the rest. I am eager to share it with you very soon.
