Hunting the Phoenix: revised cover reveal!

So I’m in the process of putting together the print version of Hunting the Phoenix, the final book of my Herbert West Series. A while ago I mentioned a change to the cover image. Here it is. The change should be obvious if you compare this image with the corresponding one in the set of four above.

Another new thing is five small glyphs I created for the five section title pages. They are symbols used in alchemy and early chemistry. I was having a hard time finding uniformly-sized versions, so I drew my own set with Microsoft Paint. They turned out well enough for my purposes. For the title text, I wanted a font with a similar hand-drawn feel, so I used Tempus Sans ITC.

Alchemy 2Next step is proofing. The print version should be available in March.
