Illustrations: LESSER GODS

When creating illustrated editions of the first two books of my series, I made sure to have at least one image per chapter, and more whenever possible.

With Lesser Gods, I’ve taken a somewhat different approach.

Because the entire series is told through the eyes of a single, first-person narrator, it stands to reason that the artwork should also reflect this limited perspective. If you have finished reading Lesser Gods, you will likely understand why a large section of this book has been deliberately left unillustrated. Just as well-placed silences can be an effective part of communication, it is my hope that the absence of pictures in these chapters will allow (or force) readers to better attune themselves to the narrator’s condition.

But this wasn’t an easy decision to make, and I’m still wondering if it was the right one. In the end, only my readers can tell me that. Depending on the feedback I get, I may still make Lesser Gods as fully illustrated as the other books.

At the moment, however, my primary goal is to complete the illustrations for the rest of the series, hopefully before the end of 2017. If there is to be any additional work on Lesser Gods, it will have to wait until after that.
