Ama--Ebook Cover

One of the delights of being an author (and completely hopeless in the visual design department) is watching how someone consumes your ideas and then creates a visual representation for them.
Nearly all the Garaaga's Children:Ancients covers were created by Starla Huchton. She does a hell of a job and I really enjoy the theme she came up with for the series. Ama is the last installment of the Garaaga's Children: Ancients volume. Just getting the cover together feels like the completion of two years of work. And yet, there's so much more to write.
In the meantime, feast your eyes on this sucker and hopefully it'll whet your appetite for what's to come.

Tattoo--New Cover Design

New Tattoo Ebook Cover

Ask anyone who's read and listened to my work, and they'll probably tell you Tattoo was the gateway drug into my fictional worlds. There's a reason for that. It's a quick, nasty ride that rushes through your blood like adrenalin and leaves you gasping.

Since Tattoo was first podcast, I have put out volumes of other stories, but it still remains a fan favorite, as well as one of mine.

This is actually the third cover attempt for the story. I once again put my work in the capable hands of Starla Huchton to make it right. This is the result.

EBook covers are much like the paperback covers of old--they tend to be more important than the words contained within. Great writers can create great worlds, great words, and still manage to sell absolute squat if they have a crap cover. Here's hoping the new cover grabs more folks and inducts them into my worlds, for better or worse.
