Really ?

Yeah - we're in a long distance relationship at the moment, so we skype at night and sometimes we read to each other. Right now I'm reading A Short Victorious War to her (we finished Honor of the queen about 2 weeks ago).

I've been impressed by your ability to capture both the grandeur of the Honorverse in your covers and the personal nature of the characters. I think this is the best example of that balance you've done. I can still remember the feeling of reading when everything comes together in Honor's head and she takes Fearless in pursuit of Sirius. Great work.

Thank you :)
On a HH cover I always try to mix two things.
The spirit of the novel, something biggest than a simple human. And something about the hero(es): his solitude, his fragility, but his strength and his courage too.
As always in the Honorverse, heroes have to face big dangers/choices for them and for their nation.

And I think that we need to see/feel that in a cover.

Have a nice week-end

Truely fantastic adding this as well to my favorites. If you update this one you could possibly add the exec, helping Mr. Webster the communications guy if I remember he was hurt in that battle wasn't he? I think he would already be in sick bay at the point this is showing, but it would add more hope to the shot....
