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.
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.
