Dinosaur Wars book 4 cover art

King of the dino beastsWhat’s that? A T rex with a lion’s mane? And have those dinosaur wranglers lost their minds? They’re about to get munched by an angry parentalsaurus while roping junior!

But of course, such things are common in THE NEW WILD WEST, where dinosaurs live again and cowboys and cowgirls are nervous.

This is the new cover art for the fourth book in my Dinosaur Wars series, soon to be formally released in ebook and paperback formats. I like the lion mane idea. Both T rex and Leo are considered King Of The Beasts in their times. Rexxy looks even scarier with that dark, bushy, feather-fur headwear. Click the image for a closer look.

And these days, with more fur and feathers being discovered on dino fossils almost daily, we need to keep up-to-date in our book illustrations. Some folks feel my depictions of dinos go too far toward a mammal-like appearance, but I don’t know–the big beasties in my book might just turn out to be wearing what all fashion-conscious dinosaurs will wear in the future.

So, let the movie Jurassic World feature naked, scaly dinos. The evidence is starting to stack against that portrayal.

Time–and fossils–will tell.
