As you may have noted…the cover of 13 Angels changed. This is all part of the ongoing process. Writing a novel is a process, not an event. Revisions and rewrites are a natural course of development. This is not journalism. The cover art for The Revenant was a cast off photograph from a still photo movie shoot. It didn’t look like much at first until we put it through post production. After cropping and sharpening I realized it contained the essence of character that I  tried to portray in the storyline….a one dimensional figure coming back to what was no longer real….as if his past had never existed at all except in his imagination. My books are all available through Amazon and Kindle…be kind and leave a comment.

Revenant

I’m not sure how many people understand the process that goes into designing cover art of any kind. In this world of instant media  people are confronted with millions of images every day. The grill of your car is contrived to enunciate a primordial urge… your streets are lined with hungry spendthrift logo’s. Do we block them out….not even close. Are we in control of our thought processes in response to imagery …..not for millions of years. Where does that leave the lonely writers…who don’t have billions to research archetypes and trawl through focus groups? I know my process.. I work with my family.  We do what we think is cool…viva la revolution. All my books are available as eBooks on Amazon, Kindle, Smashwords, Kobo, Sony…be kind to a starving artist and leave a comment…..thx.
