The Art of Chatting

23 June 2008 Jackie 3

I was pointed toward a couple of artist sites that I’m enjoying. Dan Dos Santos and Christian McGrath are two artists that most of us would probably recognize, but maybe not know. Dos Santos does the covers for Patricia Briggs and McGrath does the covers for Rob Thurman, Jim Butcher, Kat Richardson, and Vicki Pettersson. The reason I was first told about Dos Santos was because the new cover for Patricia Brigg’s novel Bone Crossed was posted up at his site. There isn’t any text on it, but that just makes it better, right?

In other news, Jacquelyn Frank is hosting an all day chat fest with a bunch of different authors. Each of the following authors are going to be showing up on Saturday, June 28th and they will be giving away a copy of their latest novels while they are on the air.
