Cover Reveal: Astra Idari Beyond Lights by Darby Harn

I’m immensely pleased to help reveal the cover for Darby Harn’s newest book, Astra Idari Beyond Lights. The wonderful Al Hess returns as the cover artist for the sequel to Stargun Messenger. I can’t get enough of Al’s artwork, whether its for his own books, someone else’s, or unrelated art. If you like the cover art, I highly suggest you follow Al on Instagram.
