Beyond Neith by LouisaGallie Beyond Neith by LouisaGallie
Private commission and licensed book cover.

Some of you may remember this Master of Crows painting: phuriedae.deviantart.com/art/M…

I painted it three years ago as a gift to a friend of mine, the very talented author Grace Draven for her (at the time unpublished) novel of the same title.

Well, I'm thrilled to announce that Master of Crows has been released on ebook and Kindle, and I've had the pleasure of reading the finished novel. It's dark, delicious, sensual, magical and suspenseful, and if you'd like to check it out, you can find it here:

Amazon: www.amazon.com/Master-of-Crows…
Smashwords (Includes a very generous free sample of the book - the first 30%!): www.smashwords.com/books/view/…

Warning for intelligent, quick witted heroines, sexy sorcerers and dark, disturbing gods :)

This painting was commissioned by Grace to go along with the first piece, and was created in Photoshop CS2 with a Wacom Graphire.

An application on facebook called 'Beautiful reflections' is using this image. I saw it today. I don't know if they are using it legally or illegally, just wanted to let you know.

Thanks very much - they definitely do not have my permission to use it. I will look and see if the author of the book may have authorised it. I can't use Facebook at work so I will check when I get home, but is the image easy to find or is it buried within the application? If it is difficult to find and you come across it again would you mind taking a screenshot for me?

Thanks again for letting me know!

I saw it on a friend's news feed. It was sent to her from a gift application called "Beautiful Reflections." I guess it must have a list of images to choose from? I don't use the gift apps or play FB games because I don't like the influx of crap I get in email or the security compromise.

I will send you the screen shot in a note.

I love this! (despite the fact that I typically like my men naked). Striking, sensual, and rich in crows.

And (this may seem like an odd remark) I am completely in love with her hand. Tis a lovely, lovely hand.

My dear, every time I look at this gorgeous illustration, I think my heartbeat revs up. Thank you so much for creating this beautiful, very romantic work. I've been showing it off to others in various forums, and they are as awed by it as I am. I, the sorcerer and his apprentice/spy thank you for bringing them to such incredible life in this medium.

Fondly yours - Grace
