The Waking Fire – Jaime Jones Confirmed as UK Cover Artist

Very pleased to report that Jaime Jones has been confirmed as the cover artist for the UK edition of The Waking Fire (Book One of The Draconis Memoria). Jaime is a highly respected concept artist and illustrator who’s recent work includes the cover for Peter Newman’s The Vagrant. I’ve seen a rough of the cover for The Waking Fire and, suffice to say, it far exceeded my expectations so I’ll be very excited to share the final version as soon as Orbit lets me. You can view a gallery of Jaime’s work here: http://www.artpad.org/gallery/portfolio/
