A New Book Cover

I’ve been pontificating about a project of mine here for years. I’ve called it the Blockade series because it is a planned hard Sci-fi series about a ring of thingies surrounding the solar system. The first book is titled Article 9, and I’m almost ready to hit the publish button on it.

I’m going through my final pass of the manuscript, managing tiny but important details like chapter length, proper quotation marks, making sure details make sense, etc. The good news is that I fully expect to upload this monster to the world in the next week or so.

And because a picture is worth a thousand words, here is the book cover we got for Article 9. Look at it . . .

article 9 cover
The artwork was created by the enormously talented Chrysoula Artemis and it was worth every penny. Chrys is a joy to work with and had ideas rolling around her brain even before she’d gotten more than a fraction into the book itself. The title font is all kinds of awesome, to say nothing of the detail that went into that 9. The rivets, the scoring on the metal, the lines where the plates join . . . brilliant.

And if you’re really ambitious, take a look at the red tipped nose cone and the fins on that missile that’s about to slam into the moon.

We go live very soon. In the mean time, I haz cover!
