So much has been going on for the last several months (moving, holidays, four minor surgeries, life in general), I haven't posted anything new for some time.
As a result, I find myself itching to get back into my normal groove. What better way than to announce the completion of my latest project ... cover art and design for the historical fiction novel ... Burnt Offering by Vivian Zabel (published by 4RV Publishing).
Is there anything more fun than portraying a horrifying deity and the terrifying reality of what humanity is capable of doing in the name of religion? Or is that just me?
Throughout history, almost every people/nation worshiped idols at one time or another. During the 8th Century BCE, King Ahaz of Judah followed pagan worship by offering burnt offerings of children, his and others, to Moleck. Pressure on the king’s subjects provided many offerings and over-zealous action to find more sacrifices on the part of his advisors and nobles.
After viewing the brutal offering of the king’s infant son, Hadara could never forget the baby’s screams, the sight of the tiny body turning crisp, the smell of burning flesh. She sent her son and his family to Egypt so they would be safe. But, the question remained: Should she endanger herself and the rest her household to help other mothers and their children escape from Moleck’s fire?
