The Sabazel Covers

With all the editions of this book now available, it seems like time to do a comparison of cover art...especially since I got to design the cover art for the newer editions.

SabazelCreateSpace Print Edition:

I'm still using the famous Battle of Issus mosaic for my covers, a close-up of Alexander for the print cover, a more general view of the mosaic for the e-cover. If you could somehow place all four e-covers side by side, you'll have a complete view of a beautiful sunset.


eBook Edition

Sabazel Author's Guild The Back-in-Print cover is a portion of the famous Alexander-at-the-battle-of-Issus mosaic found at Pompeii. This bit shows Alexander charging, and looks more like Elvis than I'd like, but hey, it's a genuine ancient picture of the person who inspired the book.

Sabazel MMPBThe original cover of Sabazel was done by Dawn Wilson. It matches the descriptions of Danica and Bellasteros in the book--except Danica wore clothes beneath her armor! She also knew better than to go into battle with her hair flowing down her back, which would make a nice handhold for an enemy. But that's cover art for you. What I dislike about this cover is the stiff and icy stances of the figures.
