Cover art for Serving Shaka

So I am trying to source images to go in the background of my front cover. In the foreground is the only known sketch from life made of Shaka Zulu, which I included in my last blog on the subject (published Nov 8).

I need something that draws on a theme in the book. Spoiler alert! The book involves a lion attack, the introduction of firearms to the Zulus and several witchcraft scenes.

I am thinking one of these might be a good choice and have sent some images to the wonderful creative team of Rachael and Nat Ravenlock at

So here are the images - Rachael and Nat are great at manipulating images so thee are just for inspiration. What they come up with will look very different... and a lot more professional!

Let me know what you think.
