Devils Sword book artwork cover illustration by book artist and illustrator Duncan Long

I got a nice little review and the display of some of my book illustrations and book artwork in the current issue of the ezine Writing Raw.

It’s a little disconcerting working with an online publication. With print it often takes months for something to be published. With an ezine, I send the pictures and my bio to them and a couple of days later – bang! There it is.

Like everything else, publishing is speeding up in amazing ways. Ebooks can of course be almost instantaneously placed into print. But POD (print on demand) makes print about as fast as electronic publications; the PDF for the book can be uploaded one day and the printed book delivered to the customer the next via overnight delivery.

Amazing times.

When not marveling at the speed of the modern printing processes, Duncan Long makes his living as a book and magazine illustrator. His book artwork has appeared in publications from HarperCollins, PS Publishing, ILEX, Pocket Books, Fort Ross, ISFiC Press, and many other presses and self-publishing writers.
