AudibleGate

For those of you unaware, over the past few days there have been rumblings (at least in authors’ circles) of something coming to be known as AudibleGate. Audible is the dominant player in audiobook industry, as I’m sure most of you know, accounting for 90% of audiobook purchases. They have been ALLEGEDLY (take that allegedly[…]

The Battle Plan

Man. This year has been absolutely crazy. On a global scale, on a personal scale, and a professional scale. Global for reasons I don’t need to mention. Personal, because of the birth of my son (four days away from being four weeks old). And finally, professional. Because this year has been really tough in the[…]

Insert Title Here

These past three weeks have been a huge blur. Lots of getting up in the middle of the night, diaper changes, and all those things that come with raising a newborn. And in those rare moments of quiet, when I’m not sleeping, I’m working. Despite everything going on – and it’s a lot – Book[…]

Final Two Xenoworld Covers

With these two, the series rebrand is complete! This is a very basic cover that hearkens to the original Dissolution cover with the Thought Dome in the background. The main difference is just Shanti standing in front and the color scheme. The new Aberration cover goes a different direction as the original. I wanted to[…]

New Kingdom Cover

The new cover for Kingdom is done! This one might actually be my favorite now. Kingdom is a bit of a weird Xenoworld book. It’s the first book in the series where the characters get access to Odin, which is featured on the cover. They jump around all over the place – from the Northern[…]

Welcome to the Universe, Hadrian West!

The day finally came. On 9/21, our little bundle of joy was born on the auspicious day of the autumnal equinox. It’s pretty crazy that he’s here. I don’t really have the measure of his personality yet, but his hobbies seem to include sleeping, drinking milk, crying, and bodily functions. I look forward to the[…]

New Sanctum Cover

As I continue to work on the new series (about 20,000 words into Book 3 at the moment), Xenoworld Saga is continuing to undergo its rebrand. This new cover for Book 4, Sanctum, marks the halfway point of the series. It shows Shanti standing in front of the the domed city of Shenshi (what used[…]

New Cover For Beacon

Here’s the very AWESOME looking cover for Beacon, which just might be my favorite cover along with my second favorite Xenoworld book. This cover showcases Shanti just as she reaches Hyperborea in Ragnarok Crater. And of course some dragons flying around top, just because it looks cool. Here’s the spread of the paperback as well,[…]

A Humble Request

Hey guys! I need your help with something. If you have a minute to spare, it would be great if you (my awesome readers) could leave a review of the Wasteland Chronicles on my Amazon Wasteland Chronicles series page. The page is an important place for authors to showcase their books. It’s one of the[…]

New Bastion Cover

I knew this cover would be awesome, but it came out much better than I expected! I think it captures the spirit of the book very well. Bastion is the first point where Shanti really takes things into her own hands and fights back. Here’s the full spread for the print version as well:

New Prophecy Cover

As I alluded to before, I’m refurbing the Xenoworld covers. As promised, here’s the first one: In short, I love it. This particular scene shows Shanti in the Silverwood forest on her way to the reversion, where she discovers…well, something big. I absolutely love the typography. It’ll be the same across all seven books. Right[…]
