I’ve cleaned up the Database…again. It’s faster now. New information. Cleaned up old bits and slimmed it down. Added more images. It’ll be a bit easier to manage going forward, I think. It’s still sparse….

Numerology is a critical part of the culture of Buhukiea. Sentiments on numerology across each being is generally consistent—this is because the basis for numerology is rooted in the presentation of numbers themselves in Tyra Tarkush. Tyra Tarkush Character Archtypes and the Numbers

Containment Collapse Print Cover

🗓 08 Jul 2019
Containment Collapse Print Cover

Containment Collapse is massive. So massive, I had to increase the size of the book to fit all the pages in it—either that, or decrease font-size which I didn't like. So it's the largest size Lulu offers. It had to use white for the page color which was meh but not foreign to me.

Time just flies by. Four years have gone by since I released How to Stop Wildfire. It was rocky and wild at first. I knew so little and then learned so much. Four years of writing and change.

Binding My Own Book (Of Fractured Edges)

🗓 24 Dec 2018
Binding My Own Book (Of Fractured Edges)

Of Fractured Edges...the last of the first four books. The finale. The start of more. Blah, blah, blah, this is about the physical copy. Each of the previous three I've made custom hand-bound copies for, so Of Fractured Edges was next. OFE's artwork came from a photo I took of tree bark, complete with moss and everything. Then I ran the image through a bunch of color filters to give it that intense black/green hue. All that makes the cover of a hand-bound, artistic copy of the book, with three dimensionality and that sort of 'real aspect', obvious in how to do it. It's not like I'm making an analogy for water, fire, or wind. It's wood. And wood is tangible and exists. The idea of what to do is clear, but the execution...difficult. Wood is a tricky substance to use in projects like this. But I was going to...

Containment Collapse Cover

Containment Collapse Cover

...And here's the cover for the eighth book, Containment Collapse! Containment Collapse's cover is pretty straight forward, like Expansion Expression's. It's basically the 'inverse' of that cover. Expansion Expression had a pale background with the Scorpion right at the center and front bleeding into that void. Containment Collapse is a really bold and busy space with the Clam eating at it, glowing in it and stripping the color away from it. Which makes sense, considering one is expansion and the other is containment/contraction... The artwork itself was made using oil pastels of various brands/types and some colored pencils. I futzed with the fonts and the text decoration for awhile. The sort of cracked and 'faded' text seemed appropriate for the novel. Like it's being disintegrated. Which is kind of what happens with everything...quite relevant. I felt some angst over it, not sure why, but seeing it next to EE's cover...

The Corruption of Dark Print Cover

🗓 14 Jul 2018

The four books following HTSW - OFE are related to the Primordial Essences as the first four were on the primary elements. They match like this if it wasn't obvious already: Expansion of Expression - Expansion (Scorpion) The Madness of Light - Order/Light (White Spider) The Corruption of Dark - Chaos/Dark (Black Spider) Containment Collapse - Containment (Clam) The covers so far reflect that...

TCOD Released

🗓 11 Jul 2018

The Corruption of Dark, book 7, is released! Or rather, I got my proof copy and it looked good so there we go. It's different, though. How, you may ask, when I said that the TCOD cover was easy? Because print is different. It's different because it's lengthwise and I needed the Spiders facing each other when the books are laid out properly. Summary: The title cover page is on the back and vice-versa. I'll have a different post with pictures to explain. Right now... I'm admiring how cramped my shelf is.
