I’ve just completed an overhaul of the Maze Best series, and I’m rather proud of how it’s turned out. The new covers are cool (and available to be seen on the handy My Books page), and I’m working on promotional whatnot to go with them. If you run into me at one of the Cons I’m working, you’ll get to see the fun stuff I’ve cooked up.
While this is awesome with a side of awesome sauce, the revision, promo workup stuff, and organizing my appearances through the summer devoured my brain for the first two months of the year. However! The Greatest Sin #3 now has a title. Though the book itself isn’t ready for primetime yet, I can proudly reveal the gorgeous cover:
Chavali has 99 problems, and the stairs are at least 237 of them. As usual, there’s a murder, and Chavali’s stuck with having to deal with the irritating people who insist upon trying to solve it with her. Some days, I wonder if she’ll reach out of the book and throttle me for making her put up with this nonsense. Other days, I’m too busy cackling about her misery to care. The rest of the time, I’m sure she’ll actually go after Erik, because it was all his idea anyway.
I love the dragon heads on a plate comment. And that cover is gorgeous!
I’m really happy with it, and unlike the other two, it came together really quick. Props to Ms. Alexandra Brandt, our cover artist.
My, you have been busy. The Moon Shades cover is striking. It has a lot of elements but is clean and crisp. Very nice. Were the dragon heads made custom? A close look at the picture implies they’re all the same head, but done at different sizes.
Those particular dragon heads were 3d printed from a design I found on Thingiverse, in two sizes. They didn’t print as well as they could have, due to some issue with [technical stuff my Dad understands, but I do not], but I’m still happy with them. They’re painted silver, with Reaper model paints. Because I’m gamer geek enough to have painted a few minis in my time.
Ooh, 3d printing. I’m jealous. Sometimes I wish I was 5o years younger so I could see what will be invented over the next fifty.
