Check out these new covers for The White Knight & Black Valentine Series

Woohoo! I can check off one item from my 2021 to-do list. New covers for The White Knight & Black Valentine Series have arrived! What was wrong with the old covers? you ask. Absolutely nothing. It’s just that Hero Status came out in 2014 and cover trends have changed. I feel the the genre ofContinue reading “Check out these new covers for The White Knight & Black Valentine Series”

11 Indie Book Covers that are Knocking it out of the Park

Book covers are works of art. They’re also marketing tools. Being in complete control of your book cover can be a huge advantage of self-publishing. It’s also harder than you’d think. We authors (and by “we” I mostly mean “me” 😅) aren’t always savvy marketers, and designing a book cover that sells in a particularContinue reading “11 Indie Book Covers that are Knocking it out of the Park”

Ladies in Leather Jackets: An Urban Fantasy Book Cover Appreciation Post

Before I commissioned the cover for Poison and Honey, I did some serious market research–which is a term that in this case means “looking at pretty book covers on Pinterest and online bookstores for hours.” Oh, woe is me. The life of an author is so hard. Anyway, as I studied genre trends and theContinue reading “Ladies in Leather Jackets: An Urban Fantasy Book Cover Appreciation Post”

8 Steampunk Heroines with Fabulous Fashion on their Book Covers

Fashion is part of the appeal of steampunk for me. I love seeing cosplayers at conventions and am fascinated by the styles of the Victorian Era. Not gonna lie–the main reason I set The Ghost Machine in the 1880s is because I like the style of the dresses in that era with the bustle inContinue reading “8 Steampunk Heroines with Fabulous Fashion on their Book Covers”

Cover Reveal: Superhuman Disaster

Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates! You’ve probably noticed it’s been pretty quiet around here lately. That’s because I’ve been spending every spare minute trying to finish Superhuman Disaster. I’m still hoping to get it out in December, in which case it’ll release on the 31st, but I may not make it. If that happens,Continue reading “Cover Reveal: Superhuman Disaster”

Book Spotlight: Red Wrath by Gerhard Gehrke

I’m always on the lookout for cool new superhero books, so when Gerhard Gehrke contacted me about his new novel, Red Wrath, I was super interested (pun intended). Then I heard the premise described as “What if the Punisher tried to take out Superman?” and immediately put it on my to-read list. A female protagonistContinue reading “Book Spotlight: Red Wrath by Gerhard Gehrke”

New Superhero Fiction (August 2018)

What time is it? Time to showcase some awesome new books from the superhero genre! I think the cover art this month is particularly great. I love the smirk on the woman’s face on the front of Red and Black, and the art for Modified has always been fantastic. (And it’s a boxed set now!Continue reading “New Superhero Fiction (August 2018)”

Cover Reveal: Kill Them All

Do you like morally gray female protagonists? Enjoy a good old-fashioned revenge story? Then get out your To-Read List and add Kill Them All to the bottom, because I’ve got the book for you. The release date isn’t for a few more months, but I couldn’t keep the cover a secret any longer. It’s justContinue reading “Cover Reveal: Kill Them All”

Creating a Book Cover: The Ghost Machine

A good cover alone doesn’t make a good book. I’d wager there are plenty of books out there with gorgeous covers that were quickly forgotten because the story inside didn’t live up to the captivating image on the front. But on the flip side, amazing stories go overlooked everyday because the cover is ugly orContinue reading “Creating a Book Cover: The Ghost Machine”

Cover Reveal: Clockmaker

Get ready for ghosts, airships, and adventure, everyone. I’m happy to announce another novel in the gothic steampunk world of Ghost Machine.

Feast your eyes on this lovelyContinue reading “Cover Reveal: Clockmaker”
