The Priestess Trilogy

Currently, my trilogy The Priestess is undergoing an extensive re-editing and will be condensed into a complete collection. Set in ancient Ireland during the time of the Milidh (Celts), The Priestess centers around Shiovra, High Priestess of Tara and one of the Tuatha De Danann in the three years leading up to the battle between the Tuath and the Milidh. During that time, Shiovra learns that not all Milidh are the enemy and works on making herself a stronger priestess so she can protect those she cares about. I started writing The Priestess in 2004 and finished it in 2008. The first printing was in 2010 as three separate books. With the revisions it is currently undergoing, The Priestess will once again become one book as I had originally intended.

Here is a glimpse at the unfinished new cover done completely by myself. It is a mixture of watercolor, colored pencil and pen. There is still a bit of refining to be done, as you can see...

Now, for the old covers! I decided that since the book was going from a trilogy back into one, the cover should be simple and not too extravagant. The covers below are listed from their original first edition incarnations, to the revised second edition version. Currently, only PDF copies are available until the revisions on The Priestess are completed.
