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...

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 Hardcover Copy

The Madness of Light Hardcover Copy

So...long story short: TMOL was so long that I couldn't make a normal paperback copy. So I had to make a hardcover copy. That messed things up a bit with getting the book finished as I had to figure out how to make a hardcover cover. The 'bleed' areas are much larger with a hardcover version so I had to move text around and make it smaller against the artwork. I found my way, though. The final version is going...

The Madness of Light Blurb Posted

The Madness of Light Blurb Posted

I've pulled my stuff together, guys. I'm so close to finishing The Madness of Light I can taste it. And I finished the blurb so the page is up. It'll be ready to share in a few weeks. Also, teaser: This one necessitates a hard cover copy so at least for a little while one could buy hard cover copies of it once I get it done. BE PREPARED.

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...

Expansion Expression Print Copy (or My Journey with Lulu)

Expansion Expression Print Copy (or My Journey with Lulu)

It took me awhile, but I got my act together in making a print copy of Expansion Expression. After my exciting divorce with Amazon, I decided to try new things with medium. Yada yada. I bound my own book. I pimped out my e copy. Who cares? It's very froo-froo. What's the basic version of this freedom? Well. That's where I went looking. I still wanted simple print copies of the series to put on my shelf/shrine. That used 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 Released!

Of Fractured Edges released! Sorry, I just had to use make it big and bold. It is just so exciting for me. The first four books of The Adventures of the Trinity and the One are out. This is a big milestone for the journey I began many years ago when I first began work on How to Stop Wildfire. When I first started my writing adventure. This marks the end of an era. Red, blue, yellow, green. The color...

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...

Taking a Break

Taking a Break

I haven't hashed it out that much, but I'm thinking about taking a break of some sort between book 4 and book 5. I don't know if it'll be a few months or just a few days, but I'm planning on working on a side-project, The Lost, intently for a little bit. Whether I'll finish it in this break or not, I don't know. I just have a feeling that after book 4 I'm going to need to spend some...
