Story Collection Update, plus New Interior Art Reveals

By  |  2 Comments

These last few months have been moving pretty fast and furious. There’s a lot going on with the preparation for the release of my third, but I’ve also been plugging away on the three stories for my new story collection, Lest Our Passage Be Forgotten & Other Stories. The first story, “Unearthed,” is now essentially done. It’s just waiting for the other two to go to copy edits. The second and third stories, “To the Towers of Tulandan” and “Prima,” are written and will soon be posted for early readers. Expect more on that over the coming days. Once those are done, they’ll all go through copy editing and then I’m ready to start packaging everything up.

Artwork continues apace. There are only a few more left to do. Here are three more. I’ll do more reveals as I release more news about the collection in the coming weeks.

This is for “Shadows in the Mirrors”, an dark urban fantasy about a woman and her missing daughter that through a series of unfortunate events can only just remember.

This is for “An Instrument of War.” I love how the scratchy approach to the piece mixes with the dreamy lights above.

And here is my favorite of the bunch so far. This is very well done indeed by the artist, Evgeni Maloshenkov.
