Cover Art: Pray for Dawn & Wait for Dusk by Jocelynn Drake

Cover Art: Pray for Dawn & Wait for Dusk by Jocelynn Drake

January 16, 2010 Cover Art Coverage 10

Kindle Vixen posted the cover for Jocelynn Drake’s Dark Days book 4, Pray for Dawn. And One book Away from Heaven posted the cover for book 5, Wait for Dusk. I’m not really loving either one, but Wait for Dusk looks like an 80’s romance cover.  Does anyone know if Don Sipley is the artist?  I know he did the previous covers, but these look like a pretty big departure.  I’m wondering if a new cover artist is the reason.

Throwdown Thursday: The Edge vs Kate Daniels

Thanks to Doug (aka SciFi Guy) for spotting this one first.  Devon Monk posted the cover art for the 4th Allie Beckstrom novel, Magic on the Storm.  Talk about stunning.  This is easily my favorite cover in the series so far.  Check out the previous covers below, is it just me or does the model look like she’s rocking some more curves this time? Really beautiful. Cover artist Larry Rostant is amazing!
