    Well, with Hanging Judge coming out in less than 3 weeks, (or already have it and are enjoying the hell out of it like me!), there is only the last single cover art/synopsis for DL's End Program.

    Do you have any info on the next few DL's coming out on the other end of this year? July's? September's? November's?

    Haven't had time to look. Son's illness has consumed me recently. Should have time to do updates this weekend.

    Totally understand that. Looking forward to both updates: your son's recovery and new and future Book covers.

    Chuck Rogers posted his new cover "Blood Red Tide" on the DL facebook page.. Ryan umm looks.. different. GE really dropped the ball on their new logo.. DL Daisy Silhouettes?

    Ugg.

    It also doesn't look like Seeley is doing the art anymore.

    Managed to track it down, looks not bad apart from the daisies. Wonder who the new artist is? Just wish we could get a release date for this one. A Chuck DL novel is like finding Eva Mendes in your bed.

    Confirmed by the man himself Dave Seeley that he is no longer doing DL covers.

    Will this work?

    Thanks for the link.

    Dont like it. The daisy looks stupid hanging off of the end, it should be where it always has been -within the cover art itself. Ryan is coming up on 40 something, not 22 and has a far more prominent scar on his face than the shaving cut this fool has. Its all just too "Hollywood teen Vampire" for me.

    I'm not on Facebook (work security reasons??) but the woman that said Ryan WAS based on Snake Pliskin is wrong, he wasn't as I've explained several times on here over the years.

    I wonder if the OL covers will go the same way?

    Well, it seems May's DL Desolation Angels just might be Dave Sealy's last book cover. Ron, do you know the author for this one?

    The new one is not bad, but just too exact image of Kurt Russel and his Snake Plisskin character. Ryan had curly long hair, and has a bit more rangy musculature. As I've said recently, Michael Herring was the best cover artist. He had these characters down, exactly like they were described by Laurence James and mentally pictured in my reader's mind.

     The whole cover design looks slightly different. The logo is not placed in the same spot, now it is dead center. The daisy thing is weird, and should at least be colored yellow instead of plain white.

    Overall, the artwork looks very similar to Seely. It is not bad. Perhaps this new artist will get better as they go along. I wonder who this latest cover artist is? Any idea Ron?

    I don't have time tonight. But now that my son is finally home resting and recovering from his surgery, I should be able to catch up on website content over the next few days. I'll get covers updated as soon as possible.

    And yeah, I'm sad that Dave Seeley is no longer doing the covers. Michael Herring was a tough act to follow, and I think Seeley really stepped up and did some great work. I'm not so much a fan of the newest cover, and definitely don't like having the daisies added to the logo. Maybe it will grow on me over time, but my first response was probably not what they were going for.

    Who does the covers for Outlanders? They are always interesting and colourful. Maybe they should hire that person. I agree the "Ryan" is too young looking on the new cover.

    Confirmed by Mr. Seeley himself that Gold Eagle terminated his contract and Desolation Angels will be his last cover for them.

    First thing he said when I sent him the picture was about the model.. and the words "Snake" and "Pliskin" did come into play lol.

    I thought Lawrence James did base the look of Ryan Cawdor on Snake Pliskin? (But not the actual character) I thought I read that on an OLD forum posting.. Shrug.

    First thing I thought of was Keanu Reeves, not Snake/Kurt. At least they got the scar on the right side...

    But... my god, what is up with that title placement, and the flowers??

    I wonder if the artist got Ryan and Dean confused? By now Dean could look like that without the scar and eye patch .
    Its too bad that the daisy is not part of the scene like it always has been.

    Yeah, Seely had some very cool covers.

    Never even thought of the Dean angle. If it wasn't for the eyepatch, you might just be right. 

    Maybe Dean Cawdor in the future turns into Kurt Russel's Snake Plisskin.

    How old is Ryan meant to be, in his 40's.

    Ryan was born on 15th January 2069 - I was told this in a letter from Laurence years ago. I'm sure we are told in red equinox that he is 35 so by now he will be just over 40ish??
