Expansion Expression Cover

Expansion Expression Cover

I bring to you what I've mocked up as the e-cover for Expansion Expression (Book Five). It's very minimalist–most of the power comes from the art. Like How to Stop Wildfire. The process of how I made this one: To start, I used water colors to give the paper a yellow-y-coppery background. Then, once it dried, I took oil pastels and sketched out the 'Scorpion' (the orange pincer). I used two different types of pastels and I smeared them all...

The Cultivation of the Personal Project

The Cultivation of the Personal Project

The story starts like this: I write a story. It takes me many years to get to a point where it is passable. It takes a few more to make me proud of it. It will take less than one afterwards to realize how far I've come since it. But we're not there yet. I wrote a story and I thought I wanted to share that story. So I shoved into onto sub-par medium (Amazon Kindle) because I hoped everyone...

Of Fractured Edges Cover Reveal + Blurb and Release Date

Of Fractured Edges Cover Reveal + Blurb and Release Date

It is that time again--time for the cover reveal of my next book + blurb + pre-order and all that jazz. I'm lumping it all together because that's how I roll. The book in question is book four of The Adventures of the Trinity and the One is titled Of Fractured Edges. It took me awhile to get to that title. Maybe hours were spent brainstorming it. I knew it had to do with earth and I knew the color...

Threads that Bind the Tempest (Book 3) Cover and Blurb!

Threads that Bind the Tempest (Book 3) Cover and Blurb!

It's that time. When you get the appetizer to the next story, in this case Threads that Bind the Tempest. The pre-story story. The lovely and enigmatic blurb. I'll stop talking now. Here is the cover to Threads that Bind the Tempest, in all its glory. Stare at it and bask in its glory. I like it a lot. And for the more substantial part. The blurb to TTBTT: The Trinity and the One’s latest adventure threatens to unravel both...

Cartoon Propaganda Posters

Cartoon Propaganda Posters

I've been practicing my computer-art skills. I decided to make cartoon propaganda posters of the main four. Cyclone, King, Spellbinder, and Farrco. They all are kind of terrible in their own way, but I think it is important to try new things and learn new skills. Cyclone looks like a cartoon character version of himself. I think he would be proud.. King looks dorky, but he is sparking up so whatever. Drew him with the bracelet! Woo hoo! Spellbinder, is...

Harmonic Waves Blurb and Cover Reveal

Harmonic Waves Blurb and Cover Reveal

Harmonic Waves is getting close to a release date/Pre-Order Availability. I don't know when exactly, but I'll have date real soon. In the mean-time, here is the blurb: A universe-wide conspiracy looms on the horizon, and the newly formed Trinity and the One are appointed to stop it. While the Trinity and the One are introducing themselves to the Empire, they are interrupted by the news of a bombing on Jalon. To demonstrate their worth to themselves and to the...

Book Cover Design: The Struggle is Real

Book Cover Design: The Struggle is Real

Book cover design is a ridiculously important part of the self-publishing process. The book cover design is important to attracting readers. Readers, although they are named such, don't read the blurb or first few pages to decide if they want to read your book, they just look at the cover. I am guilty of this, so I am not complaining. It is just how we as Humans operate. Like anyone does not. Photo from Build a Dean Because of that...

CONCEPT ART

CONCEPT ART

I have gotten to something I should have done weeks ago: upload concept art to DA and embed them here. In my possession are pictures of the character, races, and some scenery of things in How to Stop Wildfire and the world. My skills are pretty bad, yes, yes, but they are visual aids! In the database I have been adding the pictures. It is going to be fantastic in the end, I hope.
