The purple line leads from bad to worse.
The second ‘Last Man Home’ adventure is out now on Audible!
Years after an intergalactic war, four friends take a vacation on the interstellar cruise ship ‘Sky Road’. On board, Jake Berenger and his alien war buddies are attacked out of fear and prejudice.

I work hard to make the images I put on book covers match their content in quality & theme. It also has to make people click away, eager to learn more. Last Man Home: On the Sky Road launches on Kindle soon.
5 years ago, creating WALK THE FIRE’s shared universe story bible made me doubt my sanity.
None if it holds a candle to the research, history & timelines that are FARLOST.
This is writing at its best: orchestrating a deliciously complex symphony, combining genres and characters & fictional generations. I hope your podcast and ebook machines have seatbelts, because the next wave of this ‘verse is coming very, very soon.
I’m re-editing some old ebooks to up their quality & match new releases. Packaging is important for first impressions with new readers….and also for myself–to remind myself to up my game every time.
One element of print and ebooks is a publisher’s imprint or wordmark that appears on title pages and spines. Many people judge a book by it’s cover…and it’s typesetting…and so on.
It’s weird to me that some people really do feel reassurance from having some visual concept that can bridge across the different settings I tell stories in. I may be used to intricate plotting IN stories, but I have to admit dressing up a package matters as well.
Anyhow. I’m testing out a few ideas I’m not sure about…but I kind of dig this one. Whatcha think?
