Some AQ progress (more with art than writing)

Here's a gallery of artistic progress, from my initial crappy Poser scene, just to give the artist an idea of what I had in mind, to a first mockup of the actual cover. That last image is not final - the artist is making final touches on coloring and shading, and I have not finalized the color and fonts yet. I am particularly not sure about the font I'm using for "and the Thorn Circle" in the subtitle.

AQATWW is at 135K words, 24 of 46 chapters. So it's progressing too, but the plot is still doing a lot of thrashing in my head.
