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.

    Great looking cover as usual. Can’t wait for the story. Hope your eye gets better

    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…] ].

    Cover looks great! Can i ask if there is any feed­back around Severn story?? I mean will it be short story or longer book? ;)

    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
