New Covers – 2.5

A few months ago I redid the covers to the Executioner short stories because 1) I didn’t like the old ones and 2) I don’t have all the Executioners drawn, so it was getting a bit sticky about putting non-existent drawings on covers. Anyway, the new covers had a new font (because I might love Optimus Princeps, but…) and photo images. A couple of people (okay, Jonathan and my brother) complained about them (“They don’t match the others!”) and while I initially chalked it up to whiny syndrome (I can say that because Jonathan is my non-biological twin and the brother is my biological brother), I have since decided that maybe they’re right about the new font. (But I still like Lemon Tuesday…) and I admit the fact that the covers have no color in common have bugged me to the point where I was considering adding a colored filter to them already…

Anyway, here is the new effort:

I need to upload them to Smashwords still, and then I’m going to get the stories formatted for Pronoun (who will publish them to Amazon as FREE stories – yay!)

Of course, this week also marks the beginning of a year of short stories. I’m working on Cyprus, another Tales of the Executioners short.

So what do you think of the new covers? Did you like the old ones better? Or the old-old ones (That also had a different font, BTW, one I like a lot less than Lemon Tuesday)?

Verchiel’s New Cover

Yes, it’s here, the last of the new Tales of the Executioner covers!

VERCHIEL SPECIAL COVER

 

(I know his hair is not long enough, but as I preach to other authors, a cover doesn’t need to be perfect. it’s a representation, not an exact re-creation)

FREE on Smashwords!

Verchiel wakes up in an unfamiliar room with a busty woman standing over him. He can’t recall who she is – or even who he is – let alone how he’s become an immortal blood drinker. As he tries to discover the answers, he must also learn to control his blood lust or fight an entire village of panicked people.

And to answer the burning question: When will there be new Tales of the Executioners? I’m planning to spend the next year writing short stories (Starting in May) so stay tuned to the blog for updates!

Coming Soon: New Cover for Bren, Tales of the Executioners!

While we wait for the Goddess of Night cover reveal, Tales of the Executioners continues to get touched up. This week, it’s Bren who gets a new cover!

bren-reveal

The sixth in a collection called Tales of the Executioners about the vampires in the elite “police force”. Bren has a simple assignment – to deal with a coven who’s killed too many locals. When he takes a victim’s phone as a trophy, he becomes fascinated with the story of her death – almost too fascinated.

Get it FREE while it still has the old cover (not that it won’t be free later, but you know.)

 

Beldren: The Cover is Coming…

BELDREN SPECIAL REVEAL.jpg

What will this one be? OooOOOOo! Was I able to find someone who looked close to Beldren? Stay tuned to find out!

The year is 1687 in the fourth Tale of the Executioners. Beldren, a former indentured servant, suffers the same fate as many others of his kind – the promised land and money never materialized, despite having done their time. When Matthias suggest they take their due, Beldren is skeptical, but what else does he have to do? It’s a choice he may live to regret.
