"The vast majority of book covers are of characters. Since most stories are character driven, this makes sense. I alway wanted to do a large scale landscape as a cover, if for no other reason than you never see them. When presented with a story titled Shadowdale, I figured this was an opportunity when the title character was a location.
"I meticulously used maps and visual reference that had been created over the years of Shadowdale, so that every building and feature is exactly in the right place."
