Illustrations for Lillybeth and Hinsberth: The Edges of Things

Posted by R. S. Markel on May 05th, 2017

The illustrations for Lillybeth and Hinsberth: The Edges of Things have been completed. It has taken a substantial degree of effort but the first Lillybeth and Hinsberth book has been festooned with illustrations. For the visual among us I hope the drawings will make the experience of reading the text even more enjoyable as I have endeavored to capture the essence of each character's personality without giving too much detail. Only a bit more work left to regarding the interior formatting and then, hopefully, on to publication.
