Emerald Haze Cover

Emerald Haze Cover

After mulling over the top fractals I recently generated, the rejects you can see here, I settled on one fractal to use. It was the fractal that I deep-down knew was going to be the Emerald Haze cover art the moment I saw it generate. Any hesitation I had towards using the fractal medium once more for a book cover was shattered by this fractal. This fractal…its entire composition is so apt for the book contents. It is almost like...

Emerald Haze Cover Art Attempts

Emerald Haze Cover Art Attempts

I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted for the Emerald Haze cover art, but I knew it had to be green. I played around with the Apple Pencil and the Sketchbook app, but I wasn’t too fond of the above results (the art is the post thumbnail). It lacked punch and texture. It needed something more dynamic to convey the themes present in the book. After some thought, I decided to spin up the JWildfire Fractal Generator again. I used...

Moved The Recordings Series to The Spine

Moved The Recordings Series to The Spine

Just a quick update regarding some website house keeping: I gutted my old Github Pages website and moved the Recordings to the Spine and the rest of the technical blog posts over to my personal website. Basically…consolidating my digital footprint. The Recordings series was written as a technical blog post series, but it does involve races and things from the world so it belongs here and now it’s finally home! It IS unfinished, but still a fun read, I think....

New Website Landing Page!

New Website Landing Page!

I realized that the website wasn’t easy for newcomers. The main site url would just go to the blog roll. Which is not that helpful for people who have no idea what is going on. So I’ve made basically a home page for the website—specifically for people new to the series and my world. It explains high-level what’s up, the characters, and includes four recent posts. The blog lives here now. Hopefully this helps people get familiar with the series...

Patreon Opened UP!

Patreon Opened UP!

I’ve setup a Patreon! If you don’t know, Patreon is a way to support creators by subscribing to them. I’ve been intrigued with it for awhile. I don’t expect much to come from it, but hey, since it’s easy, I’ve made one. The only tier right now is $1/month. I’m debating on adding more tiers with some benefits to force me to do stuff, but I’ll wait until I get some interest before diving in further. So no patron-only content…same...

New Database

New Database

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.

New Website

New Website

I recently updated the entire website. I rebuilt it practically from scratch. Re-did the categories and tags, tweaked images, added more art, and so on. Should be a lot faster. I have a few more ideas and things to do with it, but for the most part it is settled! Take it in…take it in… Next up is the Database, that old thing…

Containment Collapse Print Cover

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. Also provides funny contrast with Expansion Expression as you can see below! All of the books in the Primordial Essences saga Crazy increase! TCOD/CC are inverted...

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...

TCOD Released

TCOD Released

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...
