Want an extra-large version of the cover? You can find that here, along with the wraparound.

I used the following two images as inspiration for this story:

Todd Lockwood, of course, is the artist behind the beautiful cover. He also did the ten interior sketches, which, sadly, I cannot post here . . . you’ll have to pick up a copy of the book to see those!

Also, if you’ve attended any of my more recent book tour events, you know that I’ve brought along dragon fossils for the “show and tell” portion of the evening. Since not everyone is able to make it to an event like that, though, I’ve photographed the fossils for all to see:
