Drawing Closer

by wjw on October 24, 2013

Here we have a study for the upcoming re-release of my novel The Rift, by the artist/designer Ares Jun.

This study for my earthquake novel was delayed because the part of the Philippines where Ares lives was hit by a 7.2 earthquake a few days ago.  My heart goes out to the people of Bohol, who suffered over 100 dead and the destruction of many historical buildings.

In The Rift, the characters are faced with the reality of a world, indeed a universe, where destruction and violence can happen at any time, to anyone.  It’s a fact of existence over which we, particularly in the developed world, tend to draw a curtain . . . at least until the ground begins to shake beneath our feet.

This is, by far, the best cover of all of those for your digital re-releases.

The composition is excellent in three or four different ways – the gap in the bridge is perfect, and then the eye is lead down naturally to the title…and to the boat at the bottom, which is relevant to the plot.

Major kudos to your artist!

I agree with TJIC. This looks great, and suits the book. I’m so glad to see this one available again. I think of it as one of your best.

Yeah, the cover’s pretty nifty. I’m making enough money at the ebooks to afford an actual artist now and again, the more so with this one because I had no idea what kind of cover this book needed, or how to create it if I did.

Nice ! I hadn’t heard of this one before. After reading review on goodreads I’m hanging out for the ebook release to read it. Very nice cover

Hope they don’t gun the outboard on that boat, as they’d probably sink the thing. Poor marine design.
