And here is a photo of the finished book itself, which landed this week – William kindly sent all the way from Atlanta! Now that’s a well-traveled book.

The moment you see your pixels come to life in print never fails to be rewarding.

Cover Reveal: No Space for Justice

I have just completed the cover art for No Space for Justice, by William N. Gilmore – and here it is.

The story sees Earth’s best homicide detective shipped off to a strange alien world with no police, courts or crime, to solve an 800-year-old murder, and it was crucial to get a feel for this in the cover art.

Stay tuned for more details about the book’s release this coming December, plus a look at the back cover illustration…

Cover Reveal: Blood Relations

I’m pleased to reveal my most recent cover illustration, for the latest book in Alice Sabo’s Asher Blaine mystery series, Blood Relations.

The cover art follows the same visual and typographical style to the previous two Asher Blaine titles. For this new book, Alice came to me with a fairly clear idea of what she wanted to see on the cover – Blaine, standing in a cornfield, with vultures circling overhead. My immediate reaction was to set the scene at sundown, with a golden haze enveloping our subtly blood-stained protagonist.

Below is the full front, back and spine design for the paperback version.

Gaming in the Obscure

One of my current projects is the design & layout of a new book, Gaming in the Obscure, by console collector, Jonn Blanchard. The book details many of the lesser known and much forgotten gaming consoles of the 80s and 90s.

Jonn has launched a Kickstarter campaign to hopefully fund a bigger print run of the book, so if retro gaming is your thing, please come and take a look!

 

Warrior Errant

Another recent book cover illustration was for Harry Elliott’s début Military SF novel, Warrior Errant. The video above introduces the cover art, which was great fun to work on, and also something quite different to my previous covers.

Check out Harry’s author page on facebook, where he’s had the marvellous idea of getting his fans around the world to send in photos of their copy of the book!

Warrior Errant is out now, published by Guardbridge Books.
