Deadly new Cover Art Reveal – A Door Never Dreamed Of

November 25, 2015 / by grimwain

A few weeks ago, I teased the backstory for my upcoming sci-fi novella, A Door Never Dreamed Of.

Now the next-to-final draft is done. Finished. Ready to be carved up by the editing gods.

As for the cover art, it’s been done for more than a month.

In August I reached out to Tessera Guild goddess, Amanda Makepeace. It felt like an obvious choice. I mean…she’d already done amazing work on the covers for The Sleepers, Hollow Empire, Nether Kingdom, and Old Man of Tessera. I never had any doubt about who I was gonna ask.

For almost a year, I’d been itching to find a way to get Amanda’s painting, The Jupiter Event, onto one of my book covers. I just happened to be wandering her website when I stumbled across it. After seeing it, I  knew it would be a perfect fit. After all, Jupiter is half the setting of the book (sort of.)

The scary, spidery, black-as-death image she’d created was perfect for the Achilles space station, home of the exiled Outs.

 And so…

A Door Never Dreamed Of

The novella will be out soon.

It’ll be my first book available as a trade paperback.

A Kindle version will also exist.

If you need cover work or if you just want cool art for your house, I suggest Lady Makepeace. You can’t go wrong.
