New Cover for The City of Cries?

December 13, 2020

My eBook publisher likes some of the covers I designed, so they asked if I might do the cover for The City of Cries. I’ve put up all six covers from books that illustrate “The City of Cries” on my Patreon page, and we’re discussing what people like, don’t like, what works, what doesn’t work, and so on. If you are on Patreon, or feel inclined to become one of my patrons, I’d really appreciate your input! Here is the link.

The picture here shows the cover my publisher designed (which I think looks fine). That’s the one they asked if I could consider doing something new.

Tuckerization Contest

August 30, 2020

I’m running a Tuckerization contest on my Patreon page.

You may have heard the term before; Tuckerization is using the name of a real person as a character in a book. It comes from the author Wilson Tucker, a science fiction writer and prolific sf fan and editor, who often used the names of his friends for his characters.

In the next two weeks I’ll be posting scenes from various of my novels on my Patreon page. Out of all the scenes I post, four will involve Tuckerizations. If you are the first person to get all four, you can select any book or record you wish from the Starflight Music and Books catalogue and I will send it to you.
