"The Exiles of the New World" Cover

Today, I received a rough draft cover for The Exiles of the New World from talented artist Maciej Rebisz. I couldn’t be happier with the way it’s come out so far. I told myself I was going to be picky with my book cover, but so far this sketch has really captured all the things I wanted on the front and it really speaks to the passages I provided for inspiration. Needless to say, I can’t wait to see the finished product.
I’m also having Sam Alcarez, another talented artist and one of my very good friends, do an alternate cover/promotional art for the novel’s other intercutting storyline set in space and I know that will turn out just as well. But for now, here’s a preview of what the cover might look like. Let me know what you think!

    hi Conor! that's an amazing cover. the colors in the sky remind me of old paintings done in oil. there is also a sense of desolation about it when i saw the lone figure and those wrecked cars. i was wondering if he was going towards the city or away from it. it's like he's undecided. artist Maciej Rebisz did an excellent job! thanks for sharing! c",)

    Thanks for the repost, David. I like your site a lot. I enjoyed the Merging Complex post especially.

    Aobib, I appreciate the cover insight. These are all things that I think really come out well in the image. I can't wait to get a finished product and slap it on my book.
