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...

The Corruption of Dark Print Cover

The Corruption of Dark Print Cover

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... Expansion Expression Cover TMOL Cover TCOD Cover Each cover show cases a stylized essence. The print...

The Corruption of Dark (Book Seven) Cover Art

The Corruption of Dark (Book Seven) Cover Art

The Madness of Light was about the Essence of Light/Order, which takes the form of a white Spider. The Corruption of Dark is about the Essence of Dark/Chaos, which takes the form of a black Spider. Perfectly balanced, as all things should be. - Thanos Following from that, the covers are opposite and not quite equal to each other. Aye, the covers aren't complete white-black mirrors...one, because the backgrounds are deliberately different. TMOL had a yellow-ish/coppery tone to it and...

The Madness of Light (Book Six) Cover Art

The Madness of Light (Book Six) Cover Art

Book six. I'm really getting there. Before the first draft was even finished, I did the cover. I've been sitting on this post for a few months now because The Madness of Light is proving to be as complex and tricky as I knew it would. I also knew exactly what I wanted out of the cover for this work. Which was a far simpler task than actually writing the thing. Like Expansion Expression, the cover is concrete. What is...

Binding My Own Book (Harmonic Waves)

Binding My Own Book (Harmonic Waves)

When I made my own copy of How to Stop Wildfire about two months ago, I knew I was going to make copies for the rest of the series. Starting with the next book, of course—Harmonic Waves. The cover used for the print/e-copy originally was a painted piece of paper that was supposed to look water-y. I was thinking of doing paints again for the cover for the self-bound book, but I wasn't feeling it. Then the idea came to...

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...

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!

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...

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...
