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...

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 motif has concluded. Fire, water, air, earth. No more simple elemental themes. We are done with that. These four stories, ending with Of Fractured Edges, were the beginnings. The defining of each of the four core members of the Trinity and the One: Cyclone, King, Spellbinder, and Farrco. Of Fractured Edges is the sweet, expected end to things started in How to Stop Wildfire. To everything that has happened in...

Of Fractured Edges Cover Reveal + Blurb and Release Date

🗓 31 Jul 2016

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 was green. Honestly, figuring out the cover was easier than the title. But then by the grace of nature did it all fall together. Literally nature. Before I explain what the art is, here again is the glorious cover for the e-version:
