Cast in Oblivion cover

Posted in writing.

I believe the front cover has gone live in some places, but: this is the full cover.

I meant to post it yesterday, but yesterday was the optometrist appointment, after which I couldn’t really see. It’s actually the worst reaction I’ve had to eye drops – and the most persistent – since I was, oh, eight years old. I managed to miss the street I normally turn up to come home, and only noticed when I passed a long stretch of brown building that I could mostly identify as a church. (ETA: I was on foot, as I don’t drive, and wouldn’t try after an optometrist appointment even if I did >.>)

Also, because I had eye drops, it was gorgeous and incredibly sunny. Unlike the day before.

But: enough whining! I think I’m about four chapters away from the end of Cast in Oblivion, but… the cover is done :). Kathleen Oudit continues as art director, and Shane Rebenschied as artist.

ETA (again, clearly this is not my most organized day >.<): According to Amazon, the pub date is January 29, 2019 – so a year after Cast in Deception.

    That’s is beautifully done. I love all the covers and I don’t usually look at covers :). I can’t wait for this book. I have strong reactions to having my eyes displayed as well. 12 hours later I’m like oh look there’s lines in the road again.

    Hate it when they dilate my eyes so I can relate. Love this series and can’t wait for the next one!

    So long… too far in the future… but at least I can start off the new year right… I love the cover.

    Have the same problem with eyedropsome. Reversal doesn’ work on me either. Usually takes 2 day before my pupils can constrict.
    Thanks for the publication Date for Castle in Oblivion
    Love this series.

    The way this year is blowing through, it will be here soon enough. Looking forward to this. Thank you.

    My eyes are much better today. The annoying thing is that my left eye recovered more quickly than my right eye.

    @Earle: Sunglasses are not required here, but while I have been attempting to actually get prescription sunglasses, all of the current glass frames are large, glasses apparently being part of fashion and moving with trends =/.

    I totaly love your covers, the are astoundingly beautiful. Can’t wait to read the story. I’ve already read and re-read Cast in Desception about 10 times….as I said, can’t wait!

    Michelle: as someone somewhat older than you, I’ve found cataract sunglasses which wrap around and are sized to go over the regular glasses.
    They may not be for someone concerned about appearance.

    Jody Lee does DAW covers for the Michelle West books (Hunter duology, most of the Sun Sword books, the House War books…), the Elantra books are from Mira [part of Harlequin which sold a year or two ago to is it Harper Collins? The series started off as the Harlequin Luna imprint, which got folded, then went to the HQN imprint, and then the Mira imprint–so three different imprints, all from the same parent…] ].

    Awesome cover, Michelle, i really can’t wait to read the book. Oh January, may thou come quickly. =D Is it my eyes, or it seems that Kaylin’s left hand is touching a light resembling a human (or hands with blade / sword)? i’m so excited! =)

    Thanks for the update, Michelle. =D
