Here's the cover illustration for the forthcoming Sheri S. Tepper hardcover, THE MARGARETS (HarperCollins/Eos). I've seen an advance copy of the book and while I'm really happy with the way the illustration printed on the jacket, unfortunately if you look at the jacket end flap, you won't know the art is by me. The company made a mistake and printed the wrong illustration credit. Really disappointing, since I'm proud to be a part of this book. In the art department's defense, these things happen. When you consider the vast number of jobs that go through a hard-working art department at a big company like HarperCollins, it's actually amazing that these things happen so seldom. So oh well....the good thing is that they're all great folks over there, and apologies were swift and sincere. We'll do plenty more covers together down the road. Now that you know who really did the cover art, check out THE MARGARETS when it hits stores everywhere next week!
