My dear friend Stephanie sketched this gorgeous picture of Harry after reading my first manuscript, Shahkara. I grew up on a farm near Roma so Harry was inspired by many wonderful bushies and men of the west. Some of those include my Dad’s old friend, Tommy Sykes, Maranoa identity Peter Keegan and my own brother-in-law, Jason. Many who read my book say that Harry touched a special part in their heart.
This prize picture of my favourite Taloner, Shahkara, chatting with the one and only Schlock Mercenary. Schlock was sketched in eight seconds by everyone’s favourite spec fic comic artist, Howard Tayler. Hubby and I were lucky enough to meet and dine with Howard at a fan gathering during AussieCon at Melbourne in 2010.
There’s something about this Warrior Princess by 7Sins7 that captures the beauty and courage of my half-Taloner heroine. 7Sins7 is working on another image of this same princess in a different costume so I’m looking forward to seeing the results!
This is one of the most beautiful 3D pictures I’ve ever seen and reminds me of Carly hidden in her non-descript gown, awaiting her fate at the gathering of the Taloners. A big thanks to 7Sins7 for lending his two gorgeous images to my website.
