A cover for book three in The Scourge trilogy, by … me. Lots of fun with blood and moody lighting. The cover model is my beautiful fiancee, Annabelle (The one not on a horse).

Ranger Ask Not by Angus Trim

Posted on November 9, 2014 by

Angus Trim has a post-apocalyptic western with a dash of medieval thrown in and a pinch of magic.¬† The main character is a western ranger sort who fires a longbow, wields a medieval sword and travels with a woman who can shape-shift into a leopard. That’s a lot to put into a cover. I thought […]

Diaries of a Dwarven Rifleman, by Michael and Linda Pearce

Posted on August 25, 2014 by

How can you not love designing a cover for a book about dwarven riflemen? It took me a couple tries to zero in on the right look for this one, but I think the final result is really fun and conveys the feel of the novel. Michael “Tinker” Pearce and his wife Linda wrote a […]

The Big Keep, by Melissa F. Olson

Posted on June 16, 2014 by

This cover was a bit of a saga. Melissa wasn’t certain what she wanted for this first-in-series private detective novel, and neither of us could find good stock photos for what we thought we wanted.

Stant Litore continues his haunting stories of the Ansible series. He wanted to convey desolation and sorrow on an alien world. And there were these six-legged camel-gazelle things that go off into the salt desert when they die. I really had fun with this. A beautiful stock image of an alien world, combined with another […]

After doing his Winter cover, we spoke and agreed that the blood was a great focal point for that cover, so I continued the blood theme. I painted¬†each of the leaves individually with a custom brush in Photoshop, duplicated the layers using […]

Ansible 15715, by Stant Litore

Posted on April 21, 2014 by

This was a cover for Stant Litore’s chilling short story about a woman lost in time, and trying to warn humankind of an upcoming catastrophe. We went through a few different versions with this. Originally, earth was in the center of the cover, with the title text inside the planet. I think this final version […]

Winter, by Scott James Magner

Posted on April 21, 2014 by

Scott James Magner is releasing four books set in Medieval Spain, each book is named after a season. Winter is the first of the covers that I designed for him, and it’s one of my favorites. The author didn’t want images of his characters. Instead, he wanted something symbolic. Something that represented hope, but with […]

Sell-By Date by Melissa F. Olson

Posted on April 21, 2014 by

Melissa Olson is known for her Old World books — Dead Spots and Trail of Dead. Her short story, Sell-by Date, was set in the same world, so she wanted a cover that was similar to the others, but different enough to show that it was a stand-alone short story. She also needed it in […]
