Coming in 2015/2016 from Thomas Nelson and Zondervan Fiction


Get comfortable! I’ve recently posted cover art from Thomas Nelson but a few more have popped up so I’ve included them in this combined post with Zondervan releases. It’s been a while since I have done a Zondy cover art post, so this one’s a long one!
