Group shot sketches!

My friend, Michael Hamlett, the artist doing the cover art for the book, has sent me two group shot sketches that are out of this world! It's just so inspiring seeing characters you created "in the flesh", so to speak. Now, if I could get someone to make action figures of them, I'd be in heaven. :)

I can't post them yet as I don't own them. Once the final work is paid for, I'll show a sneak peak of some kind.

More sketches!

I know it's a tease to talk about sketches I'm not posting, but I want to wait until things are more finalized before I share, in case they change.

But, I've seen sketches for Brandon, Aleta, and a revamped headshot of Dan.

Nice. Very nice.

Cover art update...

I've seen some preliminary sketches for the cover, and wow! I'm really excited now. Michael's really putting everything into this... thanks, Michael! His rendition's of Sarah and Dan look just outstanding.

Cover art news!

I have located Michael Hamlett, the original artist who did the character sketches for me in 2002. We are working on a schedule where he can create a color picture to use as cover art. This would truly bring the novel full circle as his artwork inspired me.

I'll post more as I know more.

Another cover idea with artwork from Michael Hamlett

Nine years ago, I commissioned artwork for the four major characters from Michael Hamlett, whose work can be seen here. I have contacted him to see if he would be able to do some cover art for me now, since the book is completed. His pictures were a huge part of the motivation for me finishing this labor of love.

Possible Cover Art

Mock up of possible cover art I did using MS Word and 3D-box maker. Work in progress:

Revamping an idea...

Thanks to a dear friend, who took the time to look at the manuscript, I am re-envisioning part of the book so as to make it less "top heavy", as he puts it. I think I understand :)

Also, publishing ideas on the horizon, so stay tuned for updates.

It's getting exciting!

Possible book cover blurb

"Dan, Aleta, Brandon, and Sarah—four reluctant modern-day heroes gifted by ancient, gods-forged civilizations—bound by prophecy, have to choose whether or not to save their world when it could mean they never existed. They must master their new powers while battling against forces beyond comprehension by repairing the Sacred Scales, destroyed by the primordial entity, Nyx, long ago. With the equilibrium between Order and Chaos unhinged, and the Olymp├Žan gods struggling to exist, this foursome must align themselves with other UN agencies struggling to protect an endangered world, becoming the only group who can fight against metaphysical threats to the Earth, forging Task Force: Gaea.

Will mortals succeed where even the gods cannot go?"
