Vincent Chong has made a post, on his blog, explaining how he made the Polish cover of Revival. Interesting to know; he made the cover without reading the book. All he had was “a synopsis and a list of recurring motifs and possible imagery that may be suitable for the cover art, for me to work from”. Again, some really nice artwork!
For this book, out of the things they originally suggested, I thought the image of the minister character with lightning in the background, could make for a good cover image. The editor agreed and my roughs for this idea were approved and I went ahead with the final art. The publisher approved the finished image but when they sent it to King’s agent for approval, unfortunately he had a problem with using the minister on the cover – one of his reasons being that he thought it might be misleading in how it represents this character, which evolves through the story.
