Cover Choices



The third book in three-part my biographical novel about Balian d'Ibelin has gone to the editor. Use the pole in the side bar to help me choose which of the below cover compositions should be refined and developed farther into a final cover for:

  Envoy of Jerusalem:

Balian d'Ibelin and the Third Crusade


Balian has survived the devastating defeat on the Horns of Hattin, and walked away a free man after the surrender of Jerusalem, but he is baron of nothing in a kingdom that no longer exists.  Haunted by the tens of thousands of Christians now enslaved by Saladin, he is determined to regain what has been lost. The arrival of a vast crusading army under the soon-to-be legendary Richard the Lionheart offers hope—but also conflict as natives and crusaders clash and French and English quarrel.
