My Problem With Doors to be released in April! Book cover reveal!

Hello everyone… so a little bit of big news… 

I am pleased to announce that my novel My Problem With Doors is set to be released this April from KGHH Publishing!

My Problem With Doors is so many things and I can’t wait for you to discover it. It is unpredictable and in many ways the kind of book I love to discover when I go to the library. Here is the draft of the back cover description for the work. (I’ll share the cover after this bit, I promise).

This is a plea for help.

If you have found this manuscript and think it to be only a novel or an ancient piece of fiction, it is not. This is the story of my life and I hope in your reading you will be able to help me…

Jacob is lost in time.

He has been lost ever since he walked through a door as a toddler and ended up in the office of a British officer in 1870. My Problem With Doors is the exciting story of Jacob’s life as a time traveler.

Adventure, humor, romance, and surprises, Jacob never knows where he is going to end up or who he will meet next in his 30-year search for a home and purpose. From pirates to poets to even Jack the Ripper, Jacob will experience all of the best and worst of humanity in his journeys. My Problem With Doors is a book like no other, filled with both literary and adventurous twists and turns.

This is a most compelling book. It pulls you in to a fascinating concept from the beginning…. I give this book 5 stars. –The Voracious Reader

I will keep you updated as the publication date moves up. Until then, let me just add a “Yahoo!”

Wow! Check out the cover for my upcoming novel PERMANENT SPRING SHOWERS!

Permanent Spring Showers

I’m  really excited to share with you today the cover for my new novel PERMANENT SPRING SHOWERS!

PERMANENT SPRING SHOWERS is being published by 5 Prince Books (you can find the page for the book here).

This really awesome cover was created by Daniel Phillips.  During the day Daniel is an audio/video engineer/editor based out of Arvada, CO with  a passion for filmmaking (especially documentaries) and loves print design.  He works at SCM Productions which is a full-service audio/video production studio (you can find them on the internet at www.scmpro.com). I think his work perfectly captures the vibe of this little twisted book.

Over the next few months, I look forward to telling you more and more about my new novel!

How a Great Book Cover Gets Made

Maximilian Standforth and the Case of the Dangerous Dare, CoverBrina Williamson is the freelance artist who has made the book cover for my novel Maximilian Standforth and the Case of the Dangerous Dare, a book I am planning to self-publish in the next month and have been documenting the experience of via this blog.

On her website, Brina has written an article detailing her process around creating this great eye-catching cover. It’s a fascinating insight into another side of a book’s design that a writer might not consider and I recommend my fellow writers check it out.
